calculations in ACT!

I have a client that is using "Auto Calc" from Northwoods Software. His equation are massive (very large) each time he calculates Auto Calc creates 306 temp files and the calculation takes several seconds (30 to 45). Can Abacus add-on do these large equation without creating the temp files and will it work faster?
He has spent a lot of time creating the formulas in Auto Calc, can they be converted into Abacus?

Abacus does not create any files in temporary folder. All calculations are performed "on the fly".
Abacus is extremely fast in calculations - we have client who runs Abacus calculations on very large database (20000 contacts).
As for formulae conversions : unfortunately there is no automatic conversion available - all formulas should be entered in Abacus manually.
If you need any help - please feel free to ask.
Please also have a look at Abacus on-line help and Flash Tutorials. Here is the link [actpresentation.com]
