Re: Moving a single contact to new database

Hi jschlegel,


Here is how you could do this:


*Create a lookup for the single contact you want to transfer

*Click File>Export...

*Select Act! Database as the type of file you want to export to

*Select the Database you want to Transfer the contact TO

*enter a username and password for that Database and click next

*Tick Contact Records as the type you would like to export

*Select Current lookup and click next

*Make sure the fields are mapped correctly, adjust any that aren't and click next

*Adjust the merge options to suit your desired outcome

*optionally tick the box to include attachments and click next

*Click Finish


This should transfer the contact record, along with their History, Notes etc to the other Database.


Hope this helps
