Very new to ACT - have installed the database - however my database (which a marketing company did for me) has given me all the data on a stick - but  not sure how I can tet this onto the database?  If that makes sense?

deb960,

 

In what format did they give you the data?  Is it in Excel, CSV or an ACT! database?

Re: Import data?

Hi

I am trying to import from a memory stick and it was from an existing ACT database - but it is coming up with:

 

You cannot import the currently open database?

 

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

What version of ACT! (the full build from Help | About)?

What file format is the data you're trying to import?

 

Without that info, it's not possible to answer your question
