I need to export the calendar for a user from ACT 2007 to outlook 2007. Is there any easy way to do this?

Not really. The calendar in ACT! is linked through to the contacts.

However, if you update to ACT! 2009, it can link the calendar in ACT! to Outlook 2007

If i update to ACT! 2009, will be be easier to sync the notes, email attachments and all? I'm migrating a client from ACT to business contact manager. So I need to transfer all of this out of ACT.

Please advise.

Activities yes, not notes or attachments

BCM doesn't support much of the data types in ACT!, so you will lose some of it.

**update**
so I installed ACT 2009 on a machine. I tried to have it sync the calendar and task items, but it didn't fully sync. I see many items on the calendar in act that are on in outlook.

Also, NONE of the tasks synced, which are most important.  Anyone know how to get all the tasks out of ACT and bring them into BCM?
