How does one export data from ACT 11.1?????

[ Edited ]

I am so frustrated with ACT v11.1 and its very poor working relationship with SQL.


I want to export my data to an Excel spreadsheet. I tried running the export wizard while the database was open. ACT will NOT let you export data from an open database. SO I saved a copy of the Db to a file named Export. Thinking, ok if they need the Db closed in order to export, I will simply not open the copy and export it. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Once Export was created I kept getting messages saying that the Db needed updating. I ran their [Edit:content removed] update wizard 25 times and it still was NOT updated.


Can anyone help me retreive my data so that I can then permanently eradicate any vesitge of this software on my system. I think a rolooade would be faster and easier than dealing with ACT.
