When I select the following menu options Contacts - - > Create Company from Contact (from either contact view), I get the following error
TBL_Company Custom ID is read only field. Can't be modified,
If it helps, I'm using Vista when this happens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's a company field called Custom ID that is set to read only. When creating company from a contact, it is trying to write data into the Custom ID field.
You have two options
1. Unlink the Custom ID field
2. Remove the Read Only permission on the field.

As both options thhat you suggest are defaults in ACT! 2010, I think that it is best to remove the read-only permission, opposed to tinkering with an ID field, as the ID field is probably used elsewhere to link records in a report or something. What do you think?
