Populating fields with data entered in other fields - ACT! 2008 10.0

I am trying to set up a tab that has a summary of data from all the tabs. How can I enter data into a field, and have it show up in another field, on another tab? (without having to re-enter the same info)  Very similarly to the way the "Salutation" field displays the First Name from the Contact field.

 

This question is for ACT! 2008 10.0.

 

Thanks

Unfortunately there isn't a feature built in that will provide this functionality.  There are third party addons that will provide this feature.

Depending upon your exact requirements, there are likely several ways to do something along these lines...

 

You might have a conversation with Stan Smith of ADS Computing, he has some scripting solutions that likely could do this.

 

Other possibilities might include Topline Designer which also has a scripting engine (You need to have Act! 10.2 or above for this tool.  The patches to Act! 10 are available from Sage at no cost...)

 

One other possibility is Durkin Toolkit - not as sure about the capabilities, but this toolkit has some pretty extensive powers.

dlunceford, In particular which of those add-ons will provide that functionality? There are dozens and dozens of add-ons from those two links you gave, and I can't tell which will do that.

One add-on is: Automatic Field Calculations

There may be others that I'm not aware of.
