I might add that I have been using Abacus (linked above in vv's post) and it works great -- with no reduction of speed or other negative impact on ACT. (BTW, in addition to calculating fields, Abacus can add first and last names into one field, rewrite fields, etc.) Abacus doesn't enable you to place specific buttons on your layouts like Exponenciel's app does, but it's not a problem for me, as you can easily call up your procedures from its one menu icon.
I have found ACT to be very slow if you have 512MB of RAM (although defragging helps a little), but it works fine for me with 1GB or 2GB of RAM.
