I am trying to transfer a database from Symantec Act ( a dbf file) to Outlook or Word 2000 so I can arrange a mail merge form letter.
When trying to import/export the database a message comes up stating the database translator cannot recognise the file. I'm using Windows XP.
Any suggestions out there??

Well my Outlook (2002) tells me it recognises that file type, so I guess it may have something to do with version compatibility. Perhaps you could save the file into another format that your Outlook recognises, then try the Import again?
