Adding Switchboard.com to Web Info

Act 2010

Vista Enterprise

 

I tried to add www.switchboard.com to the Web info and received:  "This program cannot display the webpage"

 

Under advanced: 

 

www.switchboard.com{Contact.Company}{Contact.Address 1}{Contact.City}{Contact.State}

 

Has anyone else been able to get Switchboard to work?

Re: Adding Switchboard.com to Web Info

You need to format the URL correctly.  I couldn't figured out how to use a short URL for searching company+address.

 

To just search for company name:

http://www.switchboard.com/?KW={Contact.Company} 

 

To search for company and address:

http://www.switchboard.com/results.htm?cid=&MEM=1&ypcobrand=1&PR=&ST=&inputwhat_dirty=1&KW={Contact.... 1}+{Contact.City}+{Contact.State}&SD=-1&search.x=24&search.y=12&search=Search&semChannelId=&semSessionId=

Thanks for the suggestion, but I copied your example and it still failed.  As you can see below, there is a large space between part of the URL which I deleted when I tried it.  Still received a broken link message.

Hi and thanks for your continued help.

 

I thought I could copy and paste, but that doesn't work.  I clicked on the icon that says "inser/edit image" and wasn't sure how to fill out the form.
