I created a new database and I tried to import the old database.  I get  the following error.
You don't have sufficient privileges in the source database to continue.

Just to be clear: you added a new user to the system and now you can't access your old database with your old user account?  Or, you added a new user and now can't access your old database through the new user account?

If the latter:
Have you made sure that the database you're trying to access w/ the new user is shared?

Are you sure you're logging in as the admin and not as the new user?

It sounds like you're not logging in as an admin.

You can use this ACT! Knowledge Base article to find out the correct username for the admin account - http://tinyurl.com/3ek933
