Name Suffix

Is there a way to make changes to contact suffix's

 

ie  Molly Maid, B.Comm CREBS

 

I added both suffix's to preferences

 

I have added all name fields to personal info tab, which I guess are system fields because they cannot be changed?

No Data shows in Suffix field, it should be B. Comm CREBS

 

Using 2011 Pro

 

Thanks

Re: Name Suffix

Did you verify that ACT! is parsing the name correctly by clicking the button to the right of the Contact field?

Re: Name Suffix

Yea have done all that.

I have set it up so first/last name are correct. 

Looking  at contact field - Meaghan And...., B.Comm CEBS

 

Looking at name fields  - First & last are correct - Name prefix is empty

 

Besides this one , I get some really weird pasring some times.

 

Would be great if we could access name fields

^^^^^^^ This button has disappeared and I've searched high and low for it. Anyone know how to get it back?? Our office uses this verification button for sorting purposes.

Re: Name Suffix

I have the most recent version of ACT and I too am having problems with name suffixes.

 

Name appears correctly in Contact field, complete with suffixes.

 

I choose correct first, middle and last names by clicking button to right of contact field. (I have to correct it every time - it always changes it)

 

I have added all suffixes to list in Tools - Preferences - Admin.

 

Yet the suffixes do not show correctly in the Name suffix field.

 

Does anyone have a solution for this? I can't find one.

 

Thanks
