How to enable duplicate company names in the companies screen ACT Professional V8.0.2.82

I have are quirement whereby I do need to allow duplicate names to exist in the (Company Name) in the companys screen. This is due to hierachical needs of the type opf compnaies we deal with.

I have enabled duplicating through preferneces E.g. (Tool > Preferences) but still, when I enter a name that already exists,  I get the error message advising me thet the value already exists. How can I get around this, I know that duplicates are mostly a no no in a database but I do need them on this occasion. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Act V8 2007

 

Thanks

 

Paul

Duplicate company names are not allowed with the version that you have. You would need to upgrade to version 10 or later for that capability.
