I'm running ACT! 2010 as a shared database on Windows 7. I need to sort my contacts by Active contacts, but I can't find the right option. Can someone help with this?

There are two terms within ACT that I would define prior to answering your question
Sorting - means sort from A to Z - this can be done from the edit menu or from the contact list by clicking on the field.
Lookup - or filtering this is where you would narrow your list from All contacts to just those who meet a specific criteria. This is easiest done by right clicking on a field and entering the criteria you wish to filter or lookup by.
Assuming you use a field like ID/Status for mark "Active", and that you want to Look these up.
Right click on the ID/Status Field end Active in the criteria box.
