Can I customize the data fields that are used in Act 2010. I do not need all the fields and so I do not want to export blank fields and I want to add so client specific fields, Can I do this? Is it difficult?
Thanks for the help

Hello Geraldgg. Quite honestly, this is a key feature of ACT. It would be best to play around with a demo database before you spend a lot of time structuring fields then only determine later that you could have gone about it differently.
For example, I created a number of check boxes to build a profile of my cutomer, but then changed my mind and wanted to use drop down boxes. A lot of time was spent creating the fields and then moving the data. I am doing it on a case by case bais.
You'll find a lot of help on this board. Make sure you spending some time searching. I bet you will find an exact answer to what you are looking for.
I wouldn't worry about getting rid of fields. It really isn't taking up that much space, and with the cost of storage so low, that shouldn't be a factor. Now, moving some of the field around may be a different issue. There you will want to get used to the tools menue and design layouts.
So, go click on tools and define fields and/or design layouts. A hint about drop down fields. You have to create the drop down list before you can set it as a field type.
Have fun learning how ACT can help you.
