How to move Act 2006 v8 contacts from desktop to laptop on XP

[ Edited ]

I am running Act! 2003 v8 and need to reinstall my O/S on my Desktop under XP but want to move all my contacts to Laptop for safe keeping.  Is there a safe and easy way to do this?

There was no such product as ACT! 2003

 

What version do you have - from Help | About?

The best way is to set up sync as per the Application sync section in this post:

This way, both systems will keep each other up-to-date.

 

If you only want to make a copy on the other machine and NOT DO UPDATES on the laptop, see this ACT! Knowledge Base article -
