I have made a new v11 database with several changes and would like to merge records from ACT 2000. The problem is that - for instance- on my v2000 - ID status , I have data options I do not want as options on my new ID status in v11. This field and several others have changed and I dont want to corrupt these fields in my new database. Field types and lengths on v 2000 vary (up to max length on some) I want to ( Can I ?) create a tab with these fields from my old database to merge into. Could I create memo fields with name like "old ID Status" on my new database and have the old field data in merge in without a loss of data?
And My groups- v2000 is bogged down with groups from the top of my screen to the bottom. Many will become unnecessary when v11 fields are used correctly- when I do my merge- I do not want all thes groups to mess things up. Can I create one group on my new database and in that one group add all the groups from my v2000- (as subgroups?)
So as they are collapsed into one group folder to keep things tidy in the conversion process?
