I have created a free addon program that will update all linked contacts from the company fields.
You can use it after an import of company field information, or on a regular basis.
After an import of company information, the linked contact fields will be updated.
You can download it here.

I have used Inge's product and it works! I had 26,000 plus Companies linked to 32,000 plus Contacts. I have about 15 customized fields in addition to name address etc. This processed all of them at a pace of around 4500 records per hour
I have put in a enhancement request as ACT should include this feature in the system. I can see where people will add fields after initial set up and this creates a problem if you need to link the Company fields to Contact fields!

inkey, I found your post by way of having the issue you solved with the addon. I added 5 new fields for all my companies and linked them to contact fields with the same names. However, in order to update the contacts I have to open each company and click on the update button; this task would take me weeks, with 14,000 companies and 67,000 contacts.
I tried your addon and recieved an error message. I'm using ACT 2012. Does the application you posted work with ACT 2012?
I attempted to run the application with ACT running and turned off. I have no password on my Database so I know that can't be the problem.
Any advice? thanks -Joseph

Inkey, you sir are a god among men. I am sick of every single intuitive function of this software, which should be in built and out of the box, only being available through paid add-ons.
