Inserting a calendar as an option for a drop down choice

My company has ACT! premium by Sage 2008.  I am conducting some maintenance and have found some of the fields where we use dates have a calendar that pops us when you hit the drop down selection and others need to have the actual date entered.  I would prefer to have a calendar pop us as an option for each of the fields where we enter a date but have been unable to find out how to add this to the drop down option.  Please let me know if you can help me with this and if possible send me an e-mail that would provide some instructions to jennifer.marrow@bpahealth.com.  Thank you for your help.

Re: Inserting a calendar as an option for a drop down choice

The fields without the calendar dropdown were created as character fields, not date fields. Those character fields can be converted to date format fields. However changing the format could result in data loss if the dates were not entered consistently.
