How to send your ACT! files
for conversion into GoldMine

There are 3 basic steps:

1. COMPRESSING THE ACT! FILES
   Compress the files for faster upload, using WinZip.
OR you can use PKZip.exe along with the GoldZip.Bat batch program in the Goldmine folder to compress the files you need automatically.

2. EMAIL YOUR GOLDMINE.ZIP FILE TO Convert@Cicorp.com
OR UPLOAD IT TO OUR SECURE SERVER
   Send to a secure drive only we both can access

3. DOWNLOAD the FINISHED GOLDMINE FILE
   When done, you can download the converted GOLDMINE file


Before compressing the ACT! database, there are a few considerations.

Goldmine can create sub contacts for companies with several employees.
But ACT! can only have one contact per record.
Please specify if you would like us to keep them as one contact per record, or if you would like us to combine them by company or organization.

Some features of Goldmine have no direct equivalent in ACT!  So you can look forward to having additional features available such as:

2. EMAIL YOUR GOLDMINE.ZIP FILE TO Convert@Cicorp.com
or UPLOAD IT TO OUR SECURE SERVER

First we can simply try email to: Convert@Cicorp.com
Just send the Zip file as an attachment using your email program.

Large files (10 MB+) often do not transmit properly, if at all, through email.    
Some organizations have a limit on the size of attachments you can email.
We suggest using our web based drive, which offers you up to 100 Megabytes of online storage space.

If your file is larger than that, give us a call at 800-DATA1OK, so we can send you the FTP settings to upload it directly using an FTP program such as CuteFTP.

Enter your name, company, phone, and email, so we can contact you if there are  any questions during the conversion.  This will be the phone and email we will use to tell you when your data is ready. 

For your protection, enter a password of your choice.  We will use this to encrypt  the ZIP file.  This is for your security.  We want zero chance that your data will   accessed by anyone other than you.


3. DOWNLOAD THE FINISHED GOLDMINE FILE

When we are finished with the conversion, we will notify you of the location of your file.  You can download it with any browser.  For security reasons, it will be known only to you.  The file will come as a Self-Extracting file, for your convenience.   Then you can Download it and double click uncompress it into the GoldMine Database folder.

We don NOT need the Goldmine software files, such as GMW5.EXE, or any DLLs.

The GoldZip.Bat file, placed in the Goldmine EXE folder, will get the proper files automatically.
