Exponencial Add on - Automatic Field Calculations

I recently purchased an add on from Exponencial which enables you to write code for Act fields.  One of the features of this program allows you to add buttons to the screen by creating a text field like this:  tc/name of button/buttonname.

 

I have a problem that the buttons seem to randomly move to other parts of the page.  I emailed the support line with details of the problem and Exponencial asked me to send screen shots of the problem. At first I thought it might be a problem running Act on Vista so I transferred the database to XP operating system but same problem occurs.  Exponencial do not appear to be answering my emails and just wondered whether anyone else had experienced this problem and might have a solution.

 

Would also be interested to hear from anyone who has purchased Automatic Field Calcs from this company who might be interested in sharing information regarding coding.  In particular the yes/no fields.  Trying to get tick box to copy to other yes/no fields.

 

Many Thanks.

Yes.  For Yes/No fields to work, I found that you need to check the always overwrite feature for it to work. 

 

I also have a problem with the cursor moving to the middle of the screen after I run ever calculation.  Does that happen to you too?

Re: Exponencial Add on - Automatic Field Calculations

Hi,

I have several Exponenciel addons. I like them all.

  1. Automatic field calculation
  2. Autonumbers
  3. Automatic data entry from table
  4. Advanced dropdown list
  5. Advanced Layout tools - Graphics and general pack
  6. Advanced Excel templates.
  7. Skype plug in for ACT

Support is good. There is always new versions to fix bugs that I rarely face.

Whenever I asked for support I got answer.

I do not experienced this problem with cursor jumping.

I rely and strongly suggest Exponenciel (and Durkin) addons.

I hope this helps.

Do you know what the two troubleshooting options under Options ->Preferences are:  (1) "Tracing on" and (2) "Not top most"
