We are trying to export the user notes out of our contactwise database and we cannot find them in the database. Does anybody know where they are stored?

Not sure, ...

In many cases, the actual field name referenced internally by the system may not be the same as the field name displayed to the user
User sees: "Notes"
Database internally references: "Field26"

So if you cal get a hold of the correct "Table"...
You may need to link to that in Access to see what field is really the "Notes" field

Let's see what other Experts post...


The first thing I discovered is that there are two databases and that the second database appears to be where the program goes when it is looking for the notes but I still cannot find a table that stores the notes. I am thinking they may be out on the server somewhere and the table stores the location. I am going to look at the export functionality the next time I get a chance.

OK, keep me posted...

And keep your fingers crossed that the "Notes" data is not encrypted, or is binary...
