ACT 6.0: When click on Groups DB Locks UP

Our data base has 17,000 contacts and the *.dbf is 278,343kb large.  I have done the ACT Run>actdiag>database repair several times.

Re: ACT 6.0: When click on Groups DB Locks UP

Opening other groups is ok?

How many contacts in the database?

How many in that group?

 

Have you run a Compress/Repair and the Maintenance in ACTDIAG?

I don't believe it's locked up. If you wait long enough, the group will open.

Re: ACT 6.0: When click on Groups DB Locks UP

The two main areas that killed ACT! 6 speed was large numbers of groups with lots of members and large numbers of activities. This isn't an issue in later versions.

 

One trick to help is to add a new group called:

 

~ Empty Group

 

* Include the ~

 This will then be sorted at the top and should make opening the Groups area faster.

I let the database run for a day and the the software was still hanging w/o processing and letting me see he group information.  I ran actdiag several times to see if that would clear the problem.  The group that is suppose to open is one that has practically all contacts - very large.
