Customizing Contact Report

Hello all

 

I have gone and customized the standard contact report but mainly just cosmetic things now i am trying to do some more advanced things

 

For example how (if possible) can i create a custom field that works out the contacts age based on their date of birth?

 

Could some one direct me to a existing resource or outline how things like this can be achieved??

 

Thanks

 

Jason

Re: Customizing Contact Report

What you want could be done with Visual Basic script programming embedded in the report. 

 

There are a number of knowledge base documents on the ACT! reports but there isn't comprehensive manual on the reports. I do offere one-on-one training on the ACT! reports.

Re: Customizing Contact Report

Jason,

There are also some add-on products that will calculate the age of person based on the birthdate field, as well as many other calculations. A couple that come to mind are Abacus Calculated Fields and Automatic Field Calculations. Both products offer a free trial.
