Vers 10 and vers 11 able to work together?

Hello..

 

My boss just bought a single copy of ACT2008 (on sale...) for our salesperson.  

 

Our needs will require at least a couple more seats, possibly up to 6, for management and customer service

 

Can we start out with a couple copies of 2008 and then add seats, as needed, of 2009 without upgrading the 2008 seats? 

 

Also, I gather that ACT! uses SQL Server2005 Desktop...  We have SBS2003 and have an instance of SQL Server 2000 running on that machine.  It would be much more convenient for our network to have the ACT DB on our primary SQL Server 2000..  Is this possible?

 

One more question..  Can I use Crystal Reports to query the ACT DB, or is it protected in some way?  One of my primary functions here is the report writer and Crystal is my preferred tool for that..  I don't know how much control ACT provides over it's built in reporting..

 

Thanks for Advice/Suggestions

1. No, you can't have 2008 and 2009 at the same time. The schema of the database is changed for the added functionality

 

2. ACT! 2007 and later use SQL 2005 only. It is possible to have SQL 2000 and 2005 on the same server

 

3. Here are three way to use Crystal - http://tinyurl.com/5yc9d9 or http://tinyurl.com/3zvpoc or Crystal Clear from http://www.adsprogramming.com/products.htm
