There are 3 basic steps:
1. FIND THE DATABASE FILES
You can find the files in the C:\TMWIN folder
2. SEND THE FILE TO OUR SECURE SERVER
Go to https://WeTransfer.com
Select the file such as "MyDatabase.zip"
Send to Convert@CICorp.com
Enter your email address at your company
Message is optional, such as a password if necessary
Remember to let us know the password if necessary to open the files.
We will then perform the conversion.
3. DOWNLOAD the FINISHED DATABASE FILE

get the number of records in the CONTACT1.DBF data base file.
You can open the file using Excel to get a count.

TeleMagic is a bit of a challenge to convert because it is so
Even the field names of City may be "City", "Cit", "Town", etc.
1. SENDING THE TeleMagic FILES
Find the TMWin folder
and a data folder beneath it, such as "MAIN" or "DATA"
It may be under C:\Program Files
You can tell if this is the right folder if it contains such files as:
TeleMagic .EXE, .DLL, and .INI files.
1. Make sure everyone is out of TeleMagic
2. Select the TeleMagic folder with a single left click
3. Right click, then select Add to Zip
4. For the file name, enter TeleMagic.ZIP
Everyone should be out of TeleMagic for this to work because if a file is open by someone on your network, it will not compress some files, and we will not have all the data to convert.
To make sure you have the right database, go in and make a simple change, such as changing "St." to "Street" in an address. Then exit the software and check the date and time stamp. If it is within the last minute you have the right data file. More Tips
We can take care of the data files. If you need assistance on the other files, such as word processing templates, which may have to be converted separately by your staff, please feel free to call.
TMWIN do send (we need)
|Your "Data" folder (we need)|
TMWIN folder (no need to send)
We do NOT need the TeleMagic software files, such as TMWin.EXE, or any DLLs.
Or, you can create a compressed "Zip" file on your own. Please do not send the \TeleMagic\ATTACH folder, as this may have hundreds of Word processing, Excel spreadsheet, and PowerPoint files. These do not need to be converted.
The attachments can make the Zip file quite large, such as 200MB, when the necessary data would fit in 2 MB. This makes it take longer to send your files to us.
