Why can't I replace the "Contact" field?

For some reason I cannot use the edit>replace data function on "Contact" field. Is there a reason why?

ACT 2007 Standard

To clarify, that field isn't even an option in the drop down menu for the replace function. Why not? Is it just my computer or is this standard for some reason? It has "Contact Gender" but that's it. Smiley Sad

Can anyone confirm the ability to do this in Act 2007?

Is it possible that you may have changed the field name for the Contact field? Go into Tools/Design Layouts/Contact and look at the white box you are using for the contact name. The name of the field is in the box. See if it is something besides "Contact".
