call book import not working


mikedsokc
 

When I try to import the FCC database into the callbook, it locks
the computer up. I've tryed it 3 different times and it locked up at
3 different stages of the import.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your E-mail. The FCC and RAC data is not imported into ACLog. The data exists as files on your hard drive with .cal extensions that ACLog accesses for callbook lookup. You can either download the ACLog ready calldata from my website on the ACLog page or download and convert the data directly from the FCC and RAC pages.

Either way, don't try to import the data into ACLog. Just set a path to the files on your hard drive and check the check box for callbook lookup. When you tab from the Call field, the name and address of any valid US and Candadian call will appear in the appropriate data entry fields.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I guess import was the wrong word to use. I'm using the convert fcc
database under the file menu. It worked the first time I used it,
but locks the computer up every time now.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the clarification. I haven't had any other reports of problems with the conversion utility. What hardware are you running?

Hi Mike,

That is plenty of PC. I really don't know why you would be having a
problem converting the data. Like I say, I haven't had any other
reports of problems and that feature has been around for a couple of
years now.

You can always download the data from my website. I just updated it
at the beginning of the month so it is current.

I think that I may have found the problem. I forgot to mention that
while I'm at work I use a Dell docking station. I tryed it again at
home and it works. Something about the docking station that makes to
conversion lock up. I hope this helps someone in the furture. Adobe
ATM fonts will also lock computers up (for further referance).
