Help needed with Act 6 to 2008 conversion

I've come across a problem while converting an old Act 6.0 database to an Act 2008 database.

The old database has various fields, for example User 10-14 in it with miscelaneous data contained that's not an address or phone data. When using the standard conversion of Act 2008, these fields seem not to get over to the Act 2008 database. Using the custom conversion, I'm only allowed to map the fields to Address/Phone/Contact fields, not any of the UserX fields.

 

I've only started working with Act quite recently, so please excuse me if this is a dumb question.

 

Thanks for the help in advance

Re: Help needed with Act 6 to 2008 conversion

Do you have act 6.0 on the same machine which has act 2008

if so convert the database using standard conversion

at the very end of conversion it will prompt you to convert supplemental files

along witht the database another window will open

select layouts from this window and convert the layouts

 

follow this online kb in case you have already converted the database
