Issue with Transferred ACT database URGENT

[ Edited ]
I saved an ACT database on my home computer in a zip file to transfer to the office and when we try to open it here, it only shows it as a .BAK file not a PAD file. What can we do so that we can open the database at the office and use it?

berinsky,

 

How did you create the zip file?  If you created it within ACT! by going to File --> Backup --> Database, then you'll need to Restore As the database on the other computer.

 

Follow knowledgebase article below.  You'll only need to follow the Restore As section.
