Merge Fields in Text Box

I tried to create a template in Act 2009.


Opening an existing ACT template in Word 2003, I then used the ACT toolbar to insert my merge fields.


On the left-hand side, there's a text box, which allows the text to be oriented vertically, instead of horizontally.


I inserted the corresponding merge fields there, as well.


Unfortunately, when I try to print to a contact, the merge fields work fine at the top of the doc, but the exact same merge fields DO NOT print on the left-hand side.

Here's a picture of the problem.


Any ideas?

Not sure about the present version of the ACT! program but in the past Word text boxes were not supported.
