Creating Column Selections

I created a field named Popbys with a User field. When I go to contact list and try to add it to the columns I see some of my input is listed in User 12, some in User 14 and some in User 15. What's going on?

Re: Creating Column Selections

When you created your field 'popbys', did you edit the layout to change the label?  Or did you go into Tools > Define Fields to change the actual field name, and then update the layout? 

 

If you only changed the label on the layout, then the field names would have remained with their original names (User Field ##).

 

If that doesn't help, can you provide some additional information:

- What is your current version of Act!?

- Was this database converted from a previous version?  In which version of Act! was the database created?

Re: Creating Column Selections

Boy, I hope this is right. I have 2008. I think I started with 2006 but I may not have had these fields at that time.

I went into the layout and added a label called Popbys. I had a textbox field next to it and it said USER in it. Today I changed USER to Popby because that way it showed up in a Popby column in the contact list display. that's about all I can remember.
