ACT! slows down Excel Macro

I installed ACT! 2008 Premium a couple of days ago.  After the installation, the Excel macro becomes extremely slow.  I have a Excel macro to calculate the listing prices for 200,000+ items.  Usually it takes about 25 minutes to complete.  After the ACT! installation, it seemed to take forever.  In fact, I waited for hours and then aborted the macro.  Once I removed ACT!, the macro goes back to normal.  I have tried install-unstall twice and confirmed this behavior.

 

Have anyone encountered a similar scenario?  What is the reason?  Is there any solution?

 

Thanks in advance.

By the way, the computer is with Intel Core Duo CPU and 2.56 GB memory.  Therefore, hardware shall not be an issue.  Thanks.

Re: ACT! slows down Excel Macro

It's like the ACT! macro and the other macro are conflicting.

 

First see if you're using ACT! 10.0.2 in Help | About. If not try the update as it fixes some things with Office.

 

If that doesn't help, try this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/3r8es4

 

If that still fails, disable the Excel integration from ACT! in Excel
