Info won't stay

I just installed ACT 10 and so far nothing but problems!

 

I am trying to do a database for my husband who is in the automobile business.  I am typing away and have a field called "Year" I have it set to date and now going back looking through the database none of the years  (2001, 2005) have stayed.

 

What could I be doing wrong?

Re: Info won't stay

In a date field you need to put in a specific date. From what you have written it looks as though you only want a year so why not have a character field where you can just type in the years 2003, 2004 etc. You could even create a drop down to pick the particular year from the list
