I had a hard drive fail recently, so had to reinstall Act Pro 188.8.131.52, update 6. I have two issues:
#1 Wanted to do an Act! update it recommends doing a back-up, but when I do it gives me the following error:
There is a message on this board that says to "Share" the database, which I tried, but I still get the same error. I have rebooted my computer, restarted Act! with nothing else running (that I know of) and even taken off the check mark for "Include Attachments" did the Database Maintenance but can't back up the database. I am not putting in a password. Any suggestions?
#2 When I open up a Word document from inside Act! my auto text I have saved in the Normal.dot do not work, is there another template that Act! uses? I am using Word 2010. Any suggestions for that?
Thank you in advance!

See this KB - http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/33098
You have the following file open...
Find it and perhaps delete it.

David, you were right, there were three files that were running in the SQL Server, not easy to close. I went to the SQL Server Manager and closed all files and still had a problem, because if they are running in the SQL server you cannot delete them. I rebooted about 5 times and finally got the back up to take.
Thanks for your help.
Any suggestions for the auto text issue?
