Error importing ACT! 2000 to Outlook 2003

Please see attached screenshot of error message I receive when I try to import an ACT! 2000 database into Outlook 2003. I have been able to import a different, smaller database created in ACT! 2000 into Outlook 2003. So I suspect that the database generating the error may be corrupted. I also get an error message when I try to reindex the bogger database. Questions follow:
1. Is there a utility that can fix a corrupted ACT! 2000 database?
2. Is there a way to also import the contact histories from ACT! 2000 to Outlook 2003?

Before you do anything, make sure you have a good backup.

You really should update to 5.04 and update with Hotfix 3 and the updated ACTDIAG from the ACT! downloads page:

The follow the database repair as per this article - http://tinyurl.com/52laf7

No, you cannot move notes, histories and some other items to Outlook because Outlook simply lacks the functionality to support those data types as it's not really a sales tracking or CRM tool... it's a PIM

"No, you cannot move notes, histories and some other items to Outlook because Outlook simply lacks the functionality to support those data types as it's not really a sales tracking or CRM tool... it's a PIM." Seems obvious now . . .
