You could use an addon like itExport for ACT! 6.0 - http://www.glcomputing.com.au/main/69/2

This would be the easiest way.

Or, if you want to take the long time to learn the ACT! 6.0 SDK, I can probably find a copy on a backup server here

ACT!PAK! is a good product, but for just exporting, it doesn't get everything like itExport... we actually work with both of them

Go to SAGE and get the SDK  then try very hard to use it - this will help http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/cgi-bin/sagesoftwareonline.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=14969

BUT, might be better using oledb or odbc links depending on where you want it to go to and how much data you are having to handle...

OLEDB - http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/cgi-bin/sagesoftwareonline.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=14023
ODBC - http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/cgi-bin/sagesoftwareonline.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=22989

But trust in GLComputing's suggestions, they are ACT experts I have come across before in a land down-under...

BTW, is that Mike L ?

Mark, none of those option will work with ACT! 6.0.... they are only for the SQL versions - 7.0 and later

Yes, it's Mike Lazarus :-)

The Titan Award from Experts-Exchange was a real surprise... still waiting for the trophy to arrive :-)

Ahh yes, quite correct... Keep forgetting it was only from 7.0

Think the one we used to use was http://www.actexport.com/ACTExport.htm  - now has a new site - http://www.jltechnical.com/ACTExport.htm  and did the job we needed straight into Access - but there wasn't too much around back then, and it was reasonably expensive if I recall, and we only needed it a couple of times to migrate data.

Now use OLEDB...

Really , really, would not bother with the SDK's and trying to do it yourself - it will take longer, and it is a bit of a false economy if you think you will save money,  unless of course you are developing some kind of companion product.

So, depending on why you are doing it, if GLComputing has used the other two and now recommends itExport (I see that they provide both from their website), then that would recommendation enough for me.

Thanks all.  I'm testing the solultions you've suggested and I believe one will work.  Though I really did want the SDK - having developed apps using it in prior Act versions.  However, your points about the time required is well-taken and with a version this old, I'm happy with any response at all!

If you do want the ACT! 6.0 SDK, let me know and I'll see if I can dig it up
