Custom Field

Is there any way to create a single custom field for my envelopes that contains the following information on a single line that spaces out the information based upon the number of characters/




The comma is right after the CITY then a space then the POSTAL CODE then 2 spaces then the PROVINCE.

Re: Custom Field

Not as a single field in ACT! 6. The ACT! 6 envelopes used a close up space property to compress adjacent fields but it didn't work very well and the comma tended to drift and sometimes overwrite and sometimes leave a gap. The later versions of the ACT! programuse a custom field and a VB expression in the envelope to reliably concatinate those fields.
