How do I transfer a .gmb data file from Goldmine to ACT?

Re: Goldmine xfer

A .gmb is a GoldMine Backup file, and it must be restored as a GoldMine database before any program can convert it to ACT!  Said another way, no conversion program understands a .gmb.

 

You'll have to use GoldMine (same version as was used to create the backup) to restore that.gmb to the original Contact Set and GMBase files first.

 

MigrateAdmin from ASDS wants the ~17 Contact Set files plus some GMBase files in order to convert.  The Contact Set files look like:

CONTACT1.DBF CONTACT1.DBT CONTACT1.MDX

CONTACT2.DBF CONTACT2.DBT CONTACT2.MDX

CONTSUPP.DBF CONTSUPP.DBT CONTSUPP.MDX

CONTGRPS.DBF  CONTGRPS.DBT CONTGRPS.MDX

CONTHIST.DBF  CONTHIST.DBT CONTHIST.MDX

and others

 

In GMBase (or in the root of GoldMine), you'll find:

CAL.DBF CAL.DBT CAL.MDX

and others
