Now part of my data is in one file and some in another. Is there a way to merge these 2 files?
I am not sure HOW I ended up with 2 files with the same names. HELP Please!

We have a webinar that will demonstrate how to merge two databases and clean them.

It might be easier thought to open both databases side by side and then customize the People view to show the "Last Edited" date. Then sort on it to tell which people just need to be updated in the other file to make them the same.
