I just imported my contacts into V19. I do not have a a separate list of companies.
Sometime I do not remember a contact name, but I do know their company name. What is the easiest way to find a contact by searching for their company? Can I do a search for a company name within contacts, and if so, what is the easiest way?
Would I need to do an import of company names, somehow link to the contacts, and then do a search?

Here are 2 ways: -
Whilst on the Contact detail screen, select Lookup from the menu. You will an option for Company in the resulting drop down menu. Type the name of the company and click ok.
or - again whilst in the Contact screen, right click on the Company field and select Lookup Company. Type the name of the company and click ok.

Thanks for the response. The second method did not seem to work. I clicked on the Companies tab on the left side, but nothing happened. Maybe because i do not have any entries in Companies?
is there a way to easily transfer all companies names that i have associated with Contacts, from Contacts to Companies? While in Contacts, and using the Contacts drop down, there is a choice of Create Company from Contact, but can that be done in one action for all companies?

There is not the facility within the standard Act! program itself, but I have written a little utility that you can have for nothing.
If you send me an email I will send some instructions by return.
All the best.
