Act 6.0.3 problem exporting to Excel 2007; drop down menu empty

[ Edited ]

I am having problems exporting my ACT 6.0.3 database to an Excel 2007 document (XP SP3). When I select Data Exchange>Export>Text Delimited, the drop down menu for types of exported files (i.e. .csv) is blank. This worked fine with Excel 2003. Can someone assist me with how to export to an Excel spreadsheet? My goal is to create an excel spreadsheet with several fields (name, email, phone). Thank you.

Thank you. Somehow now it's working, but earlier today I was only getting a blank dropdown box without the .txt file option.

ACT 6.0 does not export to excel (never did). You can however, choose File, Data Exchange, Export and export to a tab delimited text file. Excel 2003 and "Excel 2007 can open this type of field
