Office 2013 Workaround for Writing Documents in ACT Premium 2009 V11.0

Does anyone know of a workaround to use Office 2013 with older versions of ACT such as 2009 v11?  Our issue is with writing documents.  When we go to write a document from template, all our templates were created with Word 2003 and not the ACT word processor.  We cannot open them because ACT is not compatible with Word 2013.  I haven't found an easy way to convert our templates over to ACT Word Processor either.  

 

Yes I know we should upgrade but the powers that be will not let us.  

 

Any ideas?  Thank You

Hi tgp,

unfortunately not anything for a version that old.

The closest I could think of would be the Office 2013 Pack by Design R1 http://www.designr1.com/shop/office-2013-pack/

But that will only work with Act! 2011 or greater.

For Act! 2009 you may have to roll back to Office 2007 to get your functionality back.

Kind Regards
