Column preferences

Hi everyone,

 

I hope someone can help me on this issue:

 

Situation: we have Sage ACT! Premium 2011 Version 13.1.111.0, Hotfix 1 and we operate with two databases. Just to make it clear because I know some of you might ask this question: no there is no way that we merge these two databases. We want to keep the seperate.

 

Issue: In e.g. the Companies windows you also have the contact tab and there are some pre-defined columns, e.g. Contact, Company, Phone... when we add e.g. Business Card, close ACT and open the same database again everything is fine. If we open the second database all the column settings are gone.

 

Question: Is there a way to keep these settings in every database?

 

Many thanks for your help!

Hi Mike,

 

Is there no other way. I don't want to use an add-on to solve this issue. Why are preferences not saved?

 

Best,

Martin

They are saved but they are saved globally not for each individual database.

Re: Column preferences

yes but that would be sufficient...I mean the goal is to have the same preferences in both databases...but this does not work, at least at our office...

They are machine specific ... but because it doesn't know if the fields will be the same, it resets them if the database changes

Re: Column preferences

and can this be stopped? Can a preference file be created which fits both databases?
