Sage ACT! data into OpenERP 7.0 - how much?

on 5/7/13, 10:50 AM 939 views

ACT! allows export of just the base records as a CSV file. The notes and callback dates get left behind.

To get data over "properly", that requires a premium version of ACT! along with a Microsoft Server running MS-SQL and then whatever code to single step through each ACT! record then place the contents within OpenERP. Given the end-user site is a Unix server shop with mixed Unix/Windows workstations they lack the Microsoft set of software and do not have the more expensive ACT! licence so they are not thrilled to spend the $$$ to establish the software base for the porting.

So I've been told to ask:

  1. Has anyone done this before?
  2. How much would you charge on a per-record basis to take a backup or export of an ACT! database and provide the scripts/records to import into OpenERP 7.0?

And for my own edification:

  1. Does web-base ACT! import old ACT! databases?
  2. Is there an ODBC link option on web-based ACT! so the data could be exported?
