Problems running reports



I am using Sage ACT! Premium (Web) 2013 Version: with Windows 8.  I am accessing a database on our University host server.  I am using the latest version of Firefox (with pop up blocker disabled).


As of this weekend, I have been experiencing problems running an Activities report.  I will first use the Lookup search feature to find an opportunity that I have been working on to enter activities.  I will attempt to run the report "Activities detail listed by contacts".  The define filters pop up box appears with the default "Create report for All Companies".  The "Current Lookup" and "Current Company" check circles are greyed out so I can't choose to run the report for the specific opportunity searched via the Lookup.  Even if I run the report for All Companies (with me selected as the user), the output is blank and the report header reads "Company Comprehensive"


This is all very odd and has just started happening around 6-4-2016.  Can you please advise?

Re: Problems running reports

There are some confusing issues regarding your listing of steps, for one you refer to using the Activities Listed by Contact report but then say that the filters refer to companies. However the main problem may be that the ACT! reports won't report on activities attached to Opportunities.
