upgrading from Act V7

Ok, I am finally going to have to upgrade from Act 2005 to a version that plays well with Windows 7. If I go straight to 2012 Pro, will it update my databases, letters etc? Or will I have to go to another version to get to 2012?

Re: upgrading from Act V7

The upgrade to 2012 will update your database, including templates and letters. 

 

Assuming 2012 is installed on a different computer than 2005, to move/convert your database you will use the File > Backup > Database option to create a backup, move the backup file to the new computer, and use the File > Restore > Database > Restore As option to restore the database.
