Exporting From ACT

Hello All,


I am trying to export my contact list from ACT to an Excel spreadsheet. When I hit "view all contact" the "export current list to excell" button does not work, or this option is unavailable to me. I am not sure what to do at this point. Please let me know if anyone has any helpful suggestions.

What version of ACT! r u using?

Dont you mean when you click on "Lookup" / all contacts ?  You need to be in a Lookup and in List View.

Try that and let me know - cheers - FSB
