Copy Email Address

Is there a way to copy the email address in the email field to another field.

Re: Copy Email Address

In ACT! 6.0 (and earlier), the email addresses were stored in their own table to allow fo multiple addresses per contact. They are not in a normal field.

 

I'm not sure, but maybe this add-on might do it - http://www.tnhg.com/prod/download/CopySystemField.html

 

But what are you trying to actually achieve? Maybe there is a better way?

Re: Copy Email Address

You can copy the email address of the email field to another field, but it won´t work like an E Mail.

You can copy it:

1) In the EMail field clic right.

2) mark it

3) clic right

4) Copy

5) clic in the field you want to copy it

6) clic right

7) Paste

Re: Copy Email Address

You are right. I wanted to copy the email address to a non-system field so I could so I could perform various actions using that field (sort, search, etc). I ended up exporting various information plus the email address to an excel spreadsheet and then imported the email into the non-system field.
