Slow Mail Merge

Running ACT 11.1 Hotfix 1, MS Office Enterprise 2007 (Just upgraded from 2003, I think). 

 

Now, mail merge of a 40 page document can take 10 minutes where it took maybe 1 with previous Office.

 

Any ideas?

Test on the demo database and what is the outcome?

One machine or all?

Sorry, I got my numbers wrong.  The problem is with Office 2007 and ACT 10.  No problems with ACT 11.

 

Same slow processing with demo database.

Re: Slow Mail Merge

Stop your AV software in services temporarily and any spyware

Run msconfig and temporarily stop the products that are running at startup.

Test again
