Printing Activities for Records with contact name

I'm using ACT! by Sage 2007 (9.0) Version 9.0.1.162, Hotfix 1,
 
Problem 1
I subscribe to a construction news service.  I get company names that have projects but most of the time no contact name.  I want to create an activity so I can call & find out who the contact is.  It appears that if you create an activity when you don't have a contact name, the activity will not print using the Activities Report.
 
Solution 1
I just used "no name" as my contact name until I get the contacts name.
 
Problem 2
I have created a group in which I place all of the construction projects that I have not established contact with.
The idea being that I can print an activity report of all the projects I have to call.
The problem is that when I create an activity with one contact called "no name" at one company, Act creates an activity with all the contacts called "no name" at all the other companies.
 
I have been using Act since 1992 and I'm stuck on this one.
 
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Printing Activities for Records with contact name

1. How are you trying to print them?
 
2. Never seen that as you can have people with the same name anyway. But try this:
In Tools | Preferences | Calendar & Scheduling tab - Calendar Preferences
Change "On Calendars Show" to Company first
 
Dunno if that will help, but worth a try
