Perhaps you have found that ACT! SQL (7, 8, 9, or 10)
You can go back to the good old days of ACT!
Converts all Contacts, Activities, Histories, Notes, Groups, Sales/Opportunities
Retains User links to Contacts, Activities, Histories, Notes, and Sales/Opportunities
Now includes Recurring Activities Recurring Activities are "repeated out" as multiple occurrences on the appropriate dates. In the works is the "formula method" which only shows the next upcoming activity until that one is complete.
The Company table must be converted in to Groups as there is not such table in
Remember the Groups table can do "double duty" as a Company table with a simple macro.
Activities, History, Notes, and Opportunities associated with Companies will need to be associated with a Contact, an actual person, or a Group with the name of a company.
The Sales/Opportunity feature is more rudimentary, so we may have to lose some
(But we also can create a custom Sales/Opp screen for your as an additional service.)

This screen says "You cannot save the converted version

But we found a way to end the one way street!
Don't blame Pat!
Pat Sullivan invented ACT! in 1986 then sold it to Symantec in 1993
"Back to the Future" was the name of the ad campaign to celebrate
Pat's re-purchase of ACT! from Symantec in 2000
when he felt it was not doing justice to his creation..
He sold ACT! again to Best Software Inc. which sold it to Sage
and was not responsible for ACT! 7 for 2005.
