Import Contacts of a Group

I have 2 databases, i would like to import the contacts in a group from database 1 into database 2.

 

Thanks,

Don,

You can do this by:

- in Database 1 > go to the Group screen

- right click on the desired Group and select Create Lookup

- go to File > Export

- go through the wizard and select 'Current Lookup' on the 'Specify record types(s)' window (3 of 6)

- complete the wizard

 

Before performing the export, you may want to set the Duplicate Checking option within the Target database (db 2).  Duplicate Checking will help reduce the occurance of dupilcate contact records.  This is located under Tools > Preferences > Admin tab (in ACT! 2011/2012).

Re: Import Contacts of a Group

Thanks!!  Is there an option to choose what fields are mapped?  The 2 db have some custom fields, and I don't need to map all fields.

 

Thanks,
