ACT 6 mail merging

Hi,

 

We recently got 2 new computers with Vista & Office 2007...   I've installed ACT! 6 on both, and it works fine, EXCEPT I am unable to use the mail merge.  This version of ACT! doesn't seem to recognize Word 2007.  

 

HELP!!!

 

We are not in a position to upgrade ACT as this time, so I really need a work around for this.  Any suggestions??????

 

 

Thanks...

 

Marie   .

Roy,

 

Thanks for you help....

 

I have one person who's been using this version of ACT on Vista for almost a year, however, he doesn't do any mail merge.

 

I installed Word XP and its working great...    We'll keep our fingers, toes, eyes and anything we can cross that there will be no other issues.

 

Again, thanks...

 

Marie

There isn't any work around. I think you will find other problems trying to run ACT! 6 on Vista, in most cases it won't install or even do basic operations. There isn't any way to have ACT! 6 work with Word 2007.

Thanks....

 

What if I uninstalled Office 2007 and went back to Office 2003 or Office 2000/XP??   

 

ACT does work in Vista, I'm able to do everything I need to except the mail merge...  

 

Again, thanks,

 

Marie

I have no ides but you are welcome to try. There has been no testing of what will work or not work with ACT! 6 on Vista so you are basically on your own.
