I'd like to be able to import opportunities into act but before plopping down $400 for an add-on, I'd like to see if I can accomplish this with tools I already have. I'm more used to MySQL so please forgive the ignorance but where is the MS SQL located that Act writes to? Thanks.

Thanks for the input. I'm willing to take the risk as I'm currently evaluating sugar, salesforce and act (with act leading the pact) for a crm implementation for our Company. I probably didn't explain well enough what I'm looking to do. I would like to tie act to (at least one) of our website(s) that would allow forms filled out by our customers on our site to be updated within act and any updates by our cs staff to conversely update the Mysql database. It seems as if it's not only theoratically possible but has already been accomplished. See this thread http://community.act.com/t5/Sage-ACT-Developer-s-Forum/How-to-customize-ACT-to-interface-with-linux-...
If anyone moderates this forum by Sage, are there any plans to include this feature in a later release? It seems like a potential market share "score" for Sage. Most websites run on Linux and the ability to download customer data seemlessly into Act! would be extremely benefical for these site owners. Act, by far, offers many advantages over the other CRM solutions. The only drawback I see is the manual input of customer information .

The Emarketing in the ACT! program has the means to import from a web form.
