I just upgraded from Act 2006 version 8 to ACT 2009. I changed several of the field names under Edit Field in Define Fields. After hitting finish, received an error message: "Define fields has encountered an unexpected error and has logged the issue." Tech Support Bahrat, said this is another issue with the program they are supposed to be work ing on for an update.
What has been done to correct this, I just upgraded and now my defined fields cannot be used with time saving drop downs. It has been six weeks since the previous poster listed the issue. Something like this should have been discovered in the beta stage.
