ACT! v6 upgrade to 2012 History Problem

[ Edited ]

I have upgraded a client from v6 to v14 and have found a problem with the History conversion.

 

If the Regarding field contains more than about 256 characters it duplicates the whole thing into the Details.

 

The Report on History then shows the first 256 from the Regarding field and then repeats it from the Details field with everything included correctly.

 

See example attached:

that they would probably paint them.Club said they liked 'one stop shop'and buy all

from Ram.Everyone impressed with the international ball grip.

 

Has anyone else seen this when upgrading from v6?

I've not seen it but it doesn't surprise me. As I recall Details was added as a feature during the run of ACT! 3-6 and results wasn't shortened. Duplicating long resultes would be a way to preserve the longer results.
