I can't spend $200+ to get my notes data exported AND have it be connected to the contact name. I can successfully export to Excel using the Data / Import External Data command, but only the notes data comes in without knowing which contact it belongs to. I read an earlier thread of yours suggesting there are common field ID's which can be used to link the notes with the contact name, but I can't find them. Can you PLEASE explain this to me, I'm not overly technical but can muddle through. What a huge waste of time this has been for me. I've been a loyal ACT user since the 90's (Symantec), but if this can't get worked out, I'm gone... I would appreciate any help you can suggest.
