The SQL Database Service is not started

Opened ACT! Pro 2012 and received error message "The SQL Database Service is not started."  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

Open Services.msc and go down to where SQL (ACT7) is and you will probably find it is not started. You can right click and start the service should get it going.

Would you provide more information. What version of the ACT! program? Which Windows version? What happens when you try to start the SQL service?

Which account is being used for the SQL Server (Act7) service? It might be a permissions problem.
