help on backup or export, whichever works

trying to go back to a .dbf or .bak extension (these are obviously older) from ADF or ALF whichever th current extension is.  It seems like this would be offered since even Microsoft allows saving to older file extensions but I can't seem to figure it out.

You would need an add on to convert the ACT! SQL files back to codebase. Here is the link. http://www.jltechnical.com/ACTExport7_9.htm

Are you sure this would work for my latest version 11.0 - 2009 when it says:

 

Exporter for ACT! 2005-2007 exports  exports ALL**  ACT! data

 

??

The help desk at ACT did not seem to have an answer, even if there is a purchase involved.

Can't stress enough how important it would be to keep my notes and history!

 

thanks for responding

It should but you would need to contact the vendor to be sure.
