You only want the data to go from ACT! to Access?

Then, either OLEDB as suggested, or ODBC using the ActReader as per:

No.

OLEDB - Provides specific views of most of the data
ODBC - Uses ActReader to provide direct SQL access to all internal tables
itExport - exports all data from ACT! to other formats
