I am operating Act 2007, v.7+.
I originally imported about 7000 clients from a text-delimited (tab) database and apparently made an error in the 'receiving' tag name. Instead of 'First Name' / 'Last Name' I THOUGHT I had imported into 'Client FirstN' / Client LastN'.
Anyway the end result is that I have 7000 files with NO CLIENT NAMES AT ALL. I tried reimporting the Db with the corrected 'receiving' file tags, figuring that it would see them ass additional data to existing files, but it still has not picked them up.

OK, I got the 7000 back by going into Tools>Design Layouts> and replacing the problem fields with the original field names.
NOW, I lost the name for the 500 or so others (since they were associated with the previous field 'tags'.
How about this - I search for the clients without 'names', make them a separate 'group', modify THAT group the way I did the first fix, then re-add them back into the other group of contacts so that everyone is all in the same group. Sound OK???
Thanks for your help,
