How to Find Companies Without Contacts

Is it possible to list companies in companies view that do not have contacts?  

 

I've done some db clean up and realized that I have deleted contacts that were linked to companies but failed to delete the company too.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: How to Find Companies Without Contacts

While there is not a feature in Act! itself that will allow this, there is a free addin available from http://exponenciel.com  called ContactLess Companies for Act!

Here is a short description and download link:

 

ContactLess Companies is a very simple add-on which allows you to create a lookup of your companies without associated contact. Please note that it only adds a menu item (no icon on the toolbar) accessible from the Company Details or Company List view.

As a disclaimer we would be unable to provide any support on the addin directly and would recommend contacting exponenciel for assistance and would highly recommend backing up your database before use: KB 19211 - How to back up and restore an Act! database

There isn't any easy way to do that. The best way I can think of is to write a simple company report with a contact subreport. That would at least show the companies with out any contacts.
