Restore Database

I put a new drive into my computer and reinstalled the Act 2010 software.  When I put back the database file, my custom fields on the screen are no longer there.  How can I get the custom modified screen I had back?

Re: Restore Database

How did you put the database back? What method?
Do you still have access to the original drive?

I stopped the Express Service and copied the database over.  I still have access to the org. hard drive.

You probably just need to change your layout to your custom one.

Re: Restore Database

Did you also copy the Database Files folder from the same folder as the database?

No I did not copy that over.  Just the Act database file.

Re: Restore Database

You need the folder tree.

Custom Layouts, Reports, Templates and Attachments are all there

Re: Restore Database

So, I should copy the folders called:  Layouts, over to my laptop.  That will take care of the additional modifictions I made to the screen?

Re: Restore Database

You should copy the Database Files folder and everything underneath.

They you should have the layouts, but will need to select the custom one you want.
