Sort function by date entered

I am trying to update a very old list, and would like first to sort by the date each contact was first entered. Is there a way to do that?

The create date would be the sort you want but I don't believe an ACT! 6 database can be sorted by that field.

Re: Sort function by date entered

We plan to update to a newer version, but I have 3 staff people correcting how the 10,000+ contacts were originally entered first. I would like to be able to sort/delete very old "prospects" that are no longer wanted first. Any thoughts on how to sort?

You can lookup by CreateDate older than X

Or, if not a regular thing, copy the create date to a new Indexed Date field ... then sort on that. Can't recall if you could copy from a system field in ACT! (Edit | Replace) or if it needed an add-on

You needed an addon.
