Transfer Database

I created a backup of someone's database in and older version ACT! (2003 I believe).  I am trying to use it in my version (2008 for Vista) and I can't get it to import, restore, or open in entirety.  I was able to import contacts at one point but that was it.  ACT! customer support has been closed for two days so they are of absolutely no help.  If anyone has a solution I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!  Thanks!

Re: Transfer Database

If you created the backup with the ACT! program then use Winzip to extract all the files in the backup and the try the conversion.

Re: Transfer Database

There wasn't an ACT! 2003.

 

The correct way to open it would depend on the version 6.0 or earlier is different to 7.0 and later
