Re: change question fields

Did you change the actual field name in Edit | Define Fields or did you simply change the layout?


ACT! 6 only provided one actual email address field. Any filed that you added as an email address field would still be a character field. Even as character fields to search for information in any of the fields would require an advanced lookup. For what it's worth, ACT 2013 provides for multiple true email address fields and has a lookup for any email address. For what you want I think it's time to upgrade.
