Re: ACT for Windows Version 5

If you are actually referring to ACT! 2000, version 5, then you posted to the wrong forum. To answer your question, no that can't be done. The E-mail "field" that you see in the layout is not a field in the main database table but rather a portal to the separate E-mail table. That is why E-mail is not available as a data type and why you can't sort by e-mail address or use E-mail in the duplicate checking. The E-mail table can hold more than one E-mail address for a user but only the default address can be used for addressing an e-mail message
