Hi,

Have a customer who needs to move from ACT! Premium 2010 to ACT! Pro 2011.

What do I need to do to ensure the data stays intact?

Do I save a copy of the data as an ACT! 2010 Premium Database, uninstall Premium, install Pro and import the data.

Or do I save the data as ACT! 2010.

You will need to choose "File -> Save Copy As" in the prem 2010 database, from that screen you can select to save it as a standard database.
You then need to install 2011 Pro and open the database (This will upgrade it to 2011).

Make a backup before proceeding.
