Autonumbering contact ID ACT 2009

Hi,

 

I'm using ACT 2009 and I want to create a field that will automacticly generate a userid. Does anyone know how to create such a field? Is it also posible to create such a field without installing another program?

It's possible to auto populate fields, but not to incriment. Not sure if there is an addon out there that will do this or not.

What is best way to create an user id field? So a contact can be found by an user id.

This should cover how to create and manage fields in Act. You can also make it so this field cannot be left blank so that when new contacts are created this field cannot be omitted.

That would require an add-on, it's not a native function in the ACT! program.
