I have customised my alarm sound in Scheduling preferences and it works while the database is open, but as soon as the DB is re-opened the alarm customisation defaults back to nothing. It is the only customisation that this happens to. I tried copying the chosen sound .wav file to my ACT folder, but didn't make any difference. It would be great to be able to rely on the alarm sound with out having to reset every time I restart! ACT9, Win XP.
