Need Help Cleaning Up Database

I'm fairly new to ACT! and have been asked to clean up my company's database which consists of several groups which include duplicate contacts.  If I export each group to Excel, filter for duplicates and then import each group back into ACT! how do I also ensure the duplicate contacts are removed from the Contact List?  Is this the best approach to take to cleaning things up?

 

Thanks!

Are you saying that you have multiple databases?

Hi cberry. 

 

For duplicates I would suggest that you look under tools and select scan for duplicates.  I think the rest would be self explanatory.  You will be able to remove duplicates that way as well.
