registering e-base

We have been considering e-base for quite a while and I joined the "ebase community" quite a while ago. I recently downloaded ebase and am trying to register it. It says that the registration number was included in the original e-mail when I joined which is long gone. Any suggestions about how I can register?

Initial entry - name address + pledge/payment

I am just starting my ebase pro 2 setup etc. I am on Windows XL, Office 2003, and am loading with FileMaker 5.5 or 6 in single user mode.
My initial source is excel spreadsheet with 750 entries - name, address (street, city, state, zip, zip+), pledge amount, date of contact, event, payment amount, date payment. Initially these will be the only population in my database. Others (mostly without monty amounts) will be added from other lists later.

Help with importing donations

I have downloaded E-Base version 2 and I have uploaded a list of about 1500 contacts: name, address, phone number and e-mail address. I can't seem to figure out where the donations and date of donations are stored when I upload. Can anyone please give me some direction on that?
