I have a client whose office began to act strange, it was super slow and wouldn't talk to each other and would crash. I decided a reinstall of Office was the best bet to fix the problem. After having difficulties uninstalling Office, where I ended up using REVO uninstaller to get it gone, I am now trying to reinstall the software. I get passed where I put my activation key in and everything seems to be going fine until it says that Office 2010 encountered an error and was not installed successfully. I now have a client that does not have Office and no solution in sight. All help is very much appreciated!

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I am migrating away from Act! after years of frustration, but I find that the export function within the program is not great as relates to my ability to "carry along" my document attachments to contacts, histories, opportunities, and the like.

Is there a software program that will allow me to export these documents, hopefully whilst still attached/linked to the original item (contact, opportunity, history, etc.)

Many thanks in advance!

a 2921 router has suddenly stopped working .. i noticed that the ACT led is off.. it was blinking when the router was working correctly ..
last thing i did is getting into ROMmon mode to restore the router password ..
( confreg 0x2142)  i restarted the router right after this command .. before completing the whole configuration ...

now when i connect the router by serial console using Putty .. all i get is 3 continuous lines .. keep running for about one minute .. then they stop .. i can't type or read any thing .. please tell me what to do ..

Can someone convert my database over

Hi,

I am Rupesh & I am new to this forum.

I am trying to build a tool in excel which can update database maintained in access.

There will be 3 to 4 user for this excel tool which will be connected to one access database.

The excel will act as the front end tool & access as a backend tool.

I want excel VBA to perform 3 things:

1. It will update data in access based on 2 column which will act as a unique code.
2. It will add any new row if the data doesnt match with previous unique code.
3. If the user wants to delete perticular row / range then it will be deleted from database also.

Below sample of table:

Country      Product code      Sub-Brand      Mfg Base
Russia      SRU030008869020137      Syrups      Own
Russia      SRU030008869020141      Syrups      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220158      Tablets      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220258      Tablets      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220558      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008869020137      Syrups      Own
USA      SRU030008869020141      Syrups      Own
USA      SRU030008564220158      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008564220258      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008564220558      Tablets      Own

1st two column will act as a unique key.

We cannot use a replacement code since there will be multiple user working on different region, replacement option can change  or erase others database.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Regards,

Rupesh.

Hello!

I am designing a template that sales people will use to log their activity. I want to make it so that, for example, cell D3 changes to "someone@example.com" when email is selected from the drop down list in E3 or "(XXX)-XXX-XXXX" when mobile phone is selected. This is easy to be done, however, when a sales person goes to log the data they will have to erase the formula to put in the info. Is there any way it can display the data I want but then act like an empty cell when a user goes to input data?

Has anyone out there every migrated ACT! 2009 from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011?  Old software I know, but I'm trying to help a friend who still uses this.

Essentially I've successfully installed and registered ACT! On the SBS 2011 server and moved all data across from the SBS 2003 server.  I can connect to ACT on the SBS 2011 server locally, but cannot get it working over the network.  Any ideas?

I have a primary router DSL, and a secondary router in another part of the house. The problem I'm having is after both being online a link the time, the secondary router affects the primary router and causes it to run slowly. I added a gigabyte switch between the primary router and the secondary router, thinking that would act as a diode not allowing the secondary router to communicate and confuse the 1st router. How would I set the 2nd router up so that it did not communicate and interfere with the 1st router? I have to reboot probably 3 times a day, and after I do both run okay for a while, then the secondary router somehow communicates with the primary and causes it to slowdown. This has nothing to do with what either router is doing, they can just be setting static and it happens.
Hopefully gAksland

I have a new installation, running ACT!2016 Pro on a Windows Server 2012 r2 box.  The Database is on a local drive and I am attempting to run a daily backup of the database via the ACT Scheduler.  On the Server, I have setup any number of Back up tasks, logged on as an Administrator in both Windows and ACT, to no avail.  
The software is installed onto the C: partition/drive and the database sits on the main partition/drive F:.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks!

We have just Installed Act V18 on our company network PC's
We installed a New Windows 10 Enterprise PC called SRV-ACT as the main ACT PC and installed ACT and our database on this.
Database folder is shared with all Domain Users having full control over the share.
The other PC's on our domain are a mix of 2 year old Windows 7 Pro and NEW Windows 10 Enterprise PCs (all 64bit).
On these PCs we did a custom install and installed Act without SQL server (there is no need for local DBs).
Every PC on our network can run Act, open the shared database, view and add attachments without a problem.

Apart from 1 Windows7 PC - called DEV-PC.
This PC always gets the error : 1434 which indicates that port UDP 1434 or TCP Port 1433 is blocked.
The main difference between this PC and the others is it's a development machine and has the following installed:
SQL Server 2008R2 Management Studio and Visual Studio 2012 which installs a whole raft of SQL 2012 utils.

I spent an hour onto Act Support and they dialed into DEV-PC and SRV-ACT and could not fix the problem as they said it was a Firewall issue.
They tried the usual, changing PAD file to IP address, deleting PAD file using ADF file, Setting permissions on shares to everyone etc.
At the time they could not disable the Windows Domain firewall to check it.
I have since done this from GP by giving all domain users the ability to turn off domain firewall and turned off the firewall on DEV-PC and the SRV-ACT PC

I've confirmed …
