ACT! user since 2009. LABELS problems with mass mailings and especially Christmas card mailings. ACT 2007 won't print "Mr. & Mrs.." from the contact line or won't all me to enter "Barbara and Charles Dunning" for a label --- as an example. Previous ACTs would allow "Family of John Jones" but this one won't. It only prints the first name and last name listed - - - nothing in the middle and won't print titles on contact line.

Are you telling me eliminate the "custom" field on a standard label and replace it with labels for: first name + middle name + last name --- all on that line?
what if I want to invite Mr. & Mrs.?? or the Family of Morry Clifton?
When I used older ACT! versions, I could simply change the field, now that "custom" field has me buffaloed.

Pull down the label you'd like to use and hit the "edit template" tab. On the first line called "Custom", use your cursor to pull it off the label and delete it.
Then hit the FIELD icon and use your cursor to draw an area on the label where you'd like the field called CONTACT placed (usually right above the address line). The box with all the labels will appear and then you hit the field called "Contact" but check the box that you says you don't need the label. (in other words you don't need the line to say Contact: name, etc). I did it and it worked perfectly.
Hope I explained it satisfactorily.
