I have exported a bunch of ACT 10 data from one machine, moved the database files (I think...which ones do I need to move?) across the network to another machine and attempted to import the data into a new database.
This is the error I receive during the import...and it couldn't possibly be more vague:
Anyone have any ideas?

did you try to open the database after moving it across the network
( move the adf, alf, database files folder )
open the database using adf file, that will attach the database to local machine
once the database is opened , try to import
make a backup of the exiting database in this machine before import

So I need to move the ALF file? I'm a complete newbie to ACT...
I've got a PAD file, an ALF file, and a folder full of "database folders".
Are those all I need to move?

these are the files you have to move
1) <database name>.adf
2) <database name>.alf
3) <database name> - database files folder
move all these files to same location
goto file | open database | files of type | select act database.adf | goto the location where your database is| open the adf file
