I am trying to update a decimal field in Act. from 4 to 5 positions left of the decimal separator. Act seems to respond when I update the field but when I check my change the field has not been updated.
The field is used by the automatic field calculations add-on ( v12.0..0.4). Does this add-on prevent me from updating the field? And if so, why is there no warning that the field can not be edited?
I am using Act! Pro Version 126.96.36.199, Update 5 on a windows 7 machine

The field does not allow me do enter 5 digits before the separator after I have changed the field.
Disabling add-ons does not help either
Could this have something to do with the fact that 2 users are using this database? At resnet the other user has closed Act so he is not using the database. Also I can delete existing fields without a problem

yes I can. I can manipulate this field as much as I want to.
I am only using one database but I tried other already existing decimal fields and none can be updated. There are several character fields I can update however.
