Re: Oppertunties change fields and curreny

Because there are a lot of things that link to the Sales Ops fields, you can only modify the user fields (and only in the Premium versions of ACT!) - see this article in the ACT! Knowledge Base to see how
 
The currency is based on the Windows Regional settings
 
What are you trying to do?

I've not tried it, but I think the currency is taken from the Regional settings when the database is created. It can't be changed later
 
Try changing the currency and then creating a new database.
 
Unfortunately, the Sales ops system doesn't support currency changes. I don't know if there is a way around this, but you might contact an ACT! Certified Consultant in ouside of North America and ask them if there's a solution as they would have to deal with this more than the posters here.
 
It would be possible to create a seperate system using the ACT! SDK to achieve what you're looking for... maybe one of the Euro ACCs has looked at this?
 
Let us know what you find out if you speak to one of them
 
Sorry I can't be more help

Why would you want to change those base calculations?
