Outlook Addin

I work with ACT2011 and Outlook 2010 and Windows7 Ultm.


If I am in Outlook and get a email from new contact  and like to add that into ACTdatabase I get the popup screen to insert the details of the new contact, but I am NOT ABLE to CUT/PASTE name/address etc etc into that screen.

My problem or ACT/Outlook problem ??

Re: Outlook Addin

If you are trying to cut/paste the information from the email message, then this an Outlook limitation. Outlook only lets you access one dialog box at a time. So when the new contact window is open, other windows are not accessible. To workaround, you can cut/paste the info onto a Notepad or Word doc first, leave that open, click the button to create an ACT! contact, then copy/paste the info from Notepad or Word.
