One of our database users created his own copy of the database on his laptop rather than using the remote db option. What is the best way to incorporate his month or so updates? We are using Act Pro 2011. From what I gather from the forums, we
[backup both first]
a) create the remote DB,
b) move the RDB to the laptop,
c) import from his db with no cuplicate option to the laptop's RDB,
d) sync laptop to main db.
Or is their a simpler way of just creating a RDB and then copying his db files under the RDB file structure and then syncing?
Appreciate your inputs.

your process you've listed will work.
However, sometimes I actually do a backup of the laptop users database,
restore that on the machine hosting the live database,
export the backup db into the live db,
create a new RDB for the laptop user,
copy the RDB to the laptop,
restore the RDB
What this accomplishes is that there is not a lot of data then needing to sync, it's all been done on the server.
If you only have 1 months data, then it may not be a problem. It's certainly easier to do it via your list above.
Just thought I'd give a different run through on how it could be done.
