I'm using ACT v10.0.
I routinely need to look up records one after the other, and I have successfully assigned a shortcut key on my keyboard (such as F2) to quickly Lookup 'Company' or 'Postcode'.
However, my version of ACT has custom fields added to it - one field in particular is called 'Groupname' and I want to be able to assign a shortcut key to this field, too.
I've tried, but cannot figure out how to do it. My particular custom field does not show up in the list when I select (Tools - Options - Customise - Menus & Toolbars...Keyboard - &Lookup).
Is there anyway I can get ACT to assign a shortcut key to this custom field?

Why not just right click on the custom field and select the lookup option from the menu.

Yes, I could do that - and that is how I normally have to do the lookup.
However, I work fastest just using the keyboard, it slows me down having to use the mouse each time, and I was hoping there was a way around this.

Use autohotkey and have it select that custom field.
Check out this post here and alter any of the scripts contained within. I suggest that you will need to change the B selection in my script and make it close to or exactly the same as the alpha of the drop down selection range you are working with.
