Outlook 98 Data Conversion

I operate a law office.  We have used Abacus Law as our calendar and contact manager for some time but we would like to convert to Outlook 98 which we already use as an e-mail client.  Abacus Law appears to work based on dbf files but the export utility in Abacus Law is not particularly good and the data conversion from Abacus to Outlook is probably too much for me to do as a technical matter.  Is there someone out there we can hire to do this?  How much will it cost?  Are there any custom law office add-on packages for Outlook 98?
Thanks for your help.  Bob White

Hey Bob,
the data convertion shouldn't be too tough if you are using outlook 98 it has a great import utility.  You can export from abacus as a csv (comma seperated value) and import it into outlook
file -> import export -> comma seperated value (windows)
Or if you would like some profestion assistance in the converstion I can recommend a number of good people anywhere in the US.  Please email me your state and the best way I can contact you.


Hope this helps
as always

I appreciate the point about the conversion options in Outlook 98 but you really need to know how Abacus Law works to fully address this. I've taken Lenny up on his offer to steer me to someone who, hopefully, can deal with the kludgy export facility of Abacus Law so this may work out fine.  Thanks for the help.  Bob White
