No. There is an exporter the ACT! version it exports to is ACT! 6, However the cost of the exporter would be more than the upgrade to ACT! 16.

You should be able to do a flat file export to an Excel file, but that will not give you the history and notes.
You should then be able to import into 2004.
If you need history or notes, they you will need to copy and paste one at a time. I do not belive you can run 2 versions of ACT at the same time unless you have virutalization running.

I was thinking of runing Act 4 on a different computer so there would be no conflicts. But if I am unable to get my history and notes transferred, then all is lost on that issue. Only reason I wouldlike to do that is I find that running presently Act 2009 V11 is sometimes a chore. Runs kind of clunky as if there is not enough memory. I have 8GB in my laptop but it seems noi to be enough sometimes. Between the Svc host files, Act, sql server and running 4 to 6 tabs on my browser, the available memory keeps depleating which I then have to do a reboot and sart over to regain that memory.

Your performance problems are most likely related to your hard drive speed. As a laptop, it's most likely a 5400 RPM harddrive. Significant performance improvement with the ACT! program can be seen with a 7200 RPM hard drive or an SSD.
