Hi i hope i can help,
if you export the data into a text file ( open a note pad document and save it as a blank sheet )
Go to file on Act and Export
Change export type to text delimited
Click browse and find the word pad file
enter the user name and password of you act base
click next and follow the export instructions
Once you have got it exported you should be able to import into saleslogix ( or paste your word pad data file into excel or some other program that will import directly into saleslogix )
I hope this help

You might like to have a look at Sage Migrator. We developed this in conjunction with Sage, specifically for migrating ACT! databases to SalesLogix and SageCRM.
It will bring across company, contact, history, activities, linked documents, email, and opportunities.
Any questions, please ask.

Contacted Sales Rep. $1000.00 for 30 day trial.
I am still looking for a sensible way to cross one data base file into another data base file with programs authored by the same firm.

Just to clarify Mr Kennedy's post slightly - it is not a trial, it is a full license for 30 days.
Sage Migrator was developed with the express intention of making it straightforward to migrate an existing database to another system, and it provides all the maps to enable this. The maps can also be customised to handle any specialised requirements, such as adding custom fields, excluding bad data, and ensuring that duplicates are not created in th target system.
