When I sat up our Act 10 Database, I entered the contact names like this:
Doe, John & Jane
When i do a lookup and try to print the labels it prints them like this:
Is there a way I can set it to print this:
John & Jane Doe
I would much appreciate any help!

There isn'a any easy way to resolve your problem because much of the problem is the way you entered your contact information. When you enter a contact name the ACT! program parses the contact name into separate system first name, last name, name prefix and name suffix fields. When it can't automatically parse the contact name it gives you a dialog to specify the name elements. The standard labels assembles the separate name fields into a contact line that it prints. You could put the spouse name in a separate field and then use scripting in the label template to include the spouse with the contact name or you could go through each contact record and force the parsing so that the first name field is filled with botht the contact and spouce first names. However because you entered the contact name as last name first, there isn't any way to fix the problem by editing the label template.
