The ACT! 2006 database is a an MS SQL 2000 database. dBase (DBF) is quite an old technology.

You would need to export the data using something like itExport (http://www.glcomputing.com.au/main/64/1), then import it into a dBase file.

If you program you are trying to import with is trying to import an ACT! DBF file, that hasn't been an ACT! format since 6.0

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

MDB (Access) or CSV and others.

You can download it and see if one of the formats will work for you
