I have ACT! 2010 Premium, hot fixed through 3. I'm relatively new here and not in charge of okaying the cost of updating software.
We are using Office 2010.
I have designed a label and want to do a mail merge of our contact data into some labels for our salesman. I build the connection through Word's Use an Existing List function. The database connects, no problem. I'm only offered the main tables.
I should mention that I can connect to this database through Access 2003 and Excel 2010, no problem. But when I go through Word, I get an error message (repeating) that says "Record 1 contains too few data fields" and "Record 2 contains too few data fields". The only "fields that show up are M_____ and M1______.
Does anyone have any idea of what's going wrong? Should I try creating a machine datasource and connecting to that? Help appreciated. I'm running out of hair. Thanks.

Your main problem is that ACT! 2010 doesn't work with office 2010.

You need ACT! 2011 or later for compatibility with Word 2010.
