Plot data from ACT!
This article demonstrates how to plot ACT! data records in MapBusinessOnline (MBO). Since there is no direct integration between ACT! and MBO, we will need to export data from ACT! first and then plot it in MBO.

- Ensure that the list view has all the columns you wish to plot in MapBusinessOnline visible. Refer to the following article for more information on list view columns customization: How to customize List View columns in Act!

- Choose Tools > Export to Excel in the menu or click Export Current List to Excel icon on the toolbar.
- Excel spreadsheet will popup with the data records exported.
Import data in MBO
Once ACT! data records are in Excel, you can either save them in a file and plot from there, or copy-paste the data records directly into MBO. Follow the instructions in Copy & paste data from spreadsheet article to plot your data.
