I have made several changes in my ACT2010 Premium database and like to clean up by kind of filter e.g.:
If Result field (or other History field) is "Changed this or that" or "Deleted" then to clean up/delete that
particular history of the record.
It should be done for the total database. or lookup,in ONE go.
Any AddOnn tools available for this ??

There is no built-in option for this type of clean up within the Act! program. I'm not aware of any add-ons that have this capability.
An option to help clean up your History items is:
- on the History tab > click on the column heading 'Result'.
This will sort the History items by the Result value which will allow you to highlight blocks of items and delete them together. This option can only be done on individual contact records, not across multiple contacts.

Awesome. Very neat solution.
I just had the same problem which I posted yesterday - http://community.act.com/t5/Sage-ACT/Remove-Field-Changed-details-from-History/m-p/203084, and I came across this on page 2 when I was browsing the Forum, someone had just posted a new comment - great timing!

I was testing this as I have a big problem running reports that show field changed everywhere. So I created a group but not sure how to view combined group history?
I am able to filter a history list to show only those with system changes, thinking I can delete those? But cannot tie it to the group I created. What am I missing? Is there a way to edit reports to not include "field changed"?

The reports don't have that filtering capability and there isn't any way in the ACT! program to mas delete specific history types. However ther is a utility available that will allow you to selectively purge notes and history. Here is the link.
