Link Contact to Company with tabstop

Hello all,


Since yesterday I have a problem with Act Premium 2011 13.0.401


Before, when I wanted to link a contact to a company, Act! did that (when I manually typed the Company name in the designated Contact field) on pressing the Tab key.


Since yesterday this no longer works. I've tried everything I know in the Layout Designer (cleared Tab and Enter Stops; assigned them again, saved and restarted Act).


Also when I assign a Tab and an Enter Stop OR when I set the behaviour to either True or False; I doesn't work anymore. Better said: Both always work (so AND Tab Stop AND Enter Stop)


I hope somebody can/will help me with this problem.

Hello Vimomusic,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Online Community!

Have you tested with a different layout? It may be that the current layout is corrupted.

If it is corrupted and you have a backup of your database - perform a Restore As (File > Restore > Database > Restore As) to a different database name; you can then copy the layout file (*.cly) from the restored database to your original database.
