The English language version of Business Contact Manager for Outlook can only convert ACT! data created by using a United States version of ACT!.

The Data Conversion Tool prompts you to type the path and filename for the file that you want to convert and then import into Business Contact Manager for Outlook.

By default, the converted file is stored in the following folder:

  • In Windows XP, C:\Documents and Settings\<username>, My Documents\filename.bcm

    where username is the name of the user and filename is the name of the ACT! or QuickBooks file.

  • In Windows Vista, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\filename.bcm

    where username is the name of the user and filename is the name of the ACT! or QuickBooks file.
