    :) In an effort to change an Act 6.0 database, which cann't have numbers in the title name for conversion, I tried to change and ended up creating an invalid file name. Have worked with Sage and they don't support Act 6.0 anymore. I first tried, this now bad move, to convert the database to Act 2010, newer version and supported. The dbase info is still in act database folder for all database, file in the My Documents, I just can make it open in Act6.0 anymore. It is very important as I have over 1000 companies in my locale that I am wortking to find a position with this particular dBase. I thought I had backed up to my ghost drive for backups, but I hadn't.
