New fields created in design layout not showing up in import window

After going into "Design Layouts > Contacts" I created new fields to match my spreadsheet that holds my contacts.

 

Example names of new fields:

 

Sponsor of the AV?

Member of what church?

Subscriped to which mailings?

 

When I go to import my contact data from my Text Delimited file, my newly created fields do not show up. Therefore, I am unable to map/import all my contact data and information. Some of my newly created fields are "Yes/No" fields, and others are simply fields with drop down lists.

 

I am using Act! 2009.

 

Can you help me?

Re: New fields created in design layout not showing up in import window

You've explained that you've drawn the fields but have you actually created the field in the database structure? 

 

It sounds like you've taken care of the cosmetics but not actually created a field.

- Go into deisgn layouts again, look at your field compaired to an existing one.

- Does you field have text inside it?

- If you go to 'Tools -> Define Field' from the main program, are you fields listed?

- If not, create them in Defne fields then in the designer double click your field to link.
