    Hi All,

    I don't know databases very well. I have ACT and I
    have Point. I'd like to convert all my Point BRW files
    into DBF files for ACT.

    Not sure if such a converter exists of if I can do it
    with either program. Maybe I can convert the files
    into some other file type first ?

    Any comments welcome. TIA.

    Hi, G!

    You'll probably have good success if Point will export the BRW to CSV
    (comma separated variable format) and if ACT imports them. I do that for
    address books between different email clients without too much trouble.

    Thanks for the idea Tim, but it doesn't look like Point will bulk
    export anything except to the printer ! Yuck !

    One of the things that 'Paperless Printer' will 'print' to is Excel.
    Although I don't know anything about Point, is there any chance that you
    could use it to produce Excel files from your Point files, and go from

    Just a thought...
