Can anyone tell how to convert an Alamode report to ACI?

Have tried but cannot get it to work.

Do you have to configure the new ACI pages same as original Alamode(maps, sales, etc)

All I need is page 1 & 2 of URAR.

Thanks ed in arkansas(thats proably most of my problem)

Ed:

ACI does not convert AlaMode Athena files, only Olympus files. You need to purchase Mercury from AlaMode. It will convert an Athena file back down to an Olympus file.

Then go to ACI "Convert Function" It will convert the Olympus file straight across.

If you are receiving files from someone else, Mercury will only convert a file that is licensed to that copy of Mercury. You can not then receive a copy from someone else, and then convert it to either Lighthouse or Olympus for example on your copy of Mercury.

If you do receive an ALaMode copy of a file from someone else and want Mercury to convert the file, clone it and that copy will convert. The clone process makes the file lose its original tag.

Two offices (one ACI & one Ala mode) want to "semi merge", send data to office from field data system, then refine and ship.

Neither want to change appraisal programs.(typical hard headed appraisers)

Got enough info to proceed, again, thanks much.

Edward,

There are two step to this. First, you must have the Alamode software called Mercury. Second you must have the ACI/Polariod software called LIghthouse.

Good luck
