I have an updated list of names to an existing data base I do not want to import the duplicate names only the updated or new names how do I do this?

Would you be more specific about what you mean by updated names?

Thanks for your quick response
I have a data base of attendees to a convention that I received last week This week there is a new list containing the old names plus new names (name, address, company, etc.) I have mailed information to the people on the list I received last week now there are 100 new names on the attendees list The new names are in addition to the old names but they are all on the same list No way to tell which are new and which are old My Act data of course only has the old names not the new names so I was hoping I could just import the new names Wow that was long winded

Make sure duplicate checking is turned on by going to Tools > Preferences > Duplicate Checking button. The default criteria is Company, Contact, Phone. This can be changed if needed. Then, do the import and follow these instructions.

you responded to my inquiry about importing new contacts to an existing list I have on ACT I did not want to import any date (company) that I already had in my act data base I must have done something wrong because I imported every contact in the new data base can you send instructions to me again on this I have another data base I need to update
