Amending User Fields

Hi, I should preface this post by saying I'm currently using a 30 day trial version of Act 2008, although it is (supposedly) fully functioning. I'm trying to amend the user fields 1-10. I've gone in through tools>define fields and amended these fields. The newly defined fields work as they should (ie a field defined for currency will only accept numeric input) however the field titles still show as 'user 1' etc. If I go back in to tools>define fields they show up there with their new field names but are still showing with the names user 1-10 in the user fields view, which can make it a little confusing remembering which field is which. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Re: Amending User Fields

Renaming fields in the newer versions of ACT is a 2 step process.

First step is through Define Fields as you have already done.
Second step is to change the actual label on the layout.
To Do this, go to Tools/Design Layouts/Contact
Once in the layout designer, click on the correct tab and change the User 1 etc field label to reflect the new field names.
