I am an ACT 2009 user who regularly used the 'export to excel" button to export my contact information to an excel spreadsheet. I recently upgraded to Microsoft Office 2010 and since that time, my "export to excel" button is grayed out.
What do I have to reconfigure to make this button active again?

ACT! 2009 and MS Office 2010 do not integrate. You will need to upgrade to ACT! 2011 or downgrade office to 2007.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Your response, though partially true, doesn't resolve the issue of exporting "selected" contacts to Excel 2010. Like many users, pretty frustrated on not being able to utilize this function.
I noticed there was a link for a "Hotfix 4", supposedly resloving this. Downloaded and installed with no resolve.
Running ACT 2009 ver 126.96.36.199x201, Hotfix 4 and Office 2010. Is ACT saying they are not going to provide a patch? Is the only solution to upgrade to 2011?

Actually, when doing the export that Greg selected, you can only export the "current lookup" of contacts.

I'll have to beg to differ, unless I'm not understanding what you mean by "current lookup" of contacts.
File - Export - then on to Export Wizard
This action will export the current "database" that is open. Thus, if one has multiple contacts contained within different databases, only those contacts within the currently open database will be exported.
I'm referring to the ability to selectively export contacts to excel. The above exports your entire database.
