Opportunity Reporting Estimated Close Date Limit

ACT 2010


Trying to be clever, I am using very far in the future dates to classify tasks but in the opportunity area.  -- What can I say, just another way to use the db.


So, I've taged dates 2099, 2098, ... 2080 to mean different things, like "logistics activity".  I then run a modified opportunities by company report, but it appears these dates are not picked up with the selection of today and future.


Does anyone know if there are date and reporting limitations?


Thanks in advance for any help offered.


p.s. The date of 2020 does seem to work.

Re: Opportunity Reporting Estimated Close Date Limit

What version of the ACT! program are you using? There was a bug in the oppertunity report date range filter in ACT! 2010 and possibly 2009.
