Making the Company field mandatory

Hi:
 
I'm using ACT! Premium 2008 for workgroups and trying to make the Company field a required field (i.e. users can't leave it blank).
 
When I try to set the properties for the field, the "field cannot be blank" property is dimmed out.  In previous versions of ACT!, had no problems with this.
 
Any suggestions about how I can do this in the new version?
 
Thanks.

Re: Making the Company field mandatory

The company field in the companies table is already mandatory, this is no option to turn this off, that is why it is greyed out.
 
The company field in the contacts table can be toggled between mandatory and not.
 
When in define fields check what the drop down above the field list is saying to see which set of fields you are looking at.
