Salutation for Contacts

I have Act Pro 2012. What input do I have to perform to permanently have contact names on envelopes reflect saluations like "Mr." or "Mrs" etc. ?

 

Thanks.

Re: Salutation for Contacts

Are you entering the contact names in the database with the appropriate name prefix?

Roy:

 

I am just putting the names in as first, middle initial and last name. THe first name automatically shows up in the salutation. Hope this gives you the info requested.

Add another field to the database called "Social Title" and then add that field to the letter template.  You may find that you need more than one "Social Title" in which case you could add a separate field like "Individual Prefix" and you could put "Mr." in "Individual Prefix" and "Mr. & Mrs." in "Social Title".  You would need separate templates for the two envelopes.
