A client has an old computer with ACT database that he would like to transfer over to his corporate computer.  

Are there any advice on how to transfer ACT data?

Thanks.

Depends on the version of ACT! on the old machine and the version of ACT! plus operating system on the new one.

I wonder if there is a way to migrate into Access DB.  So avoid to install another ACT! app on corporate machine.

You can read the database directly via OLEDB (or ODBC if you have Premium) or you can use tools to extract the data.
