I dreated a new DB in Act! (10.0) (ST Edition) Version 10.0.0.237, Hotfix 1 and have it loaded on the server. I am an admin on the DB
I want to make some changes but the "Define fileds" selection on the tools menu is now greyed out.
What changes do I have ot make to be able to modify the DB I have created?

Yes, I am logged in as an admin on my local copy.
I thought I could make changes (for example add fields) on the local DB and have them sync to the master and then to the other users.
Do I have to log onto the master on the server? If so how do I do that...

Make sure all other users have loged out - then try again
That's what I just said.... I notice you seem to repeat a lot of what others have said. Any particular reason?

Is it a single user database?
You might check this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/4bhacu

You will need to do that from the copy of ACT! installed on the server. That can't be done from a workstation.
Pretty sure you don't need to be on the server to define fields (as long as you're an admin and the only one logged in) ... only to create the database.
