groupname missing

Hi,

I have selected a group and created a look up list, because I want to exprt this list to an excel file.Everything works fine except that I cannot see the groupname. I tried in the list lookup to modify the columns and added "groupname", but this column is empty. Any idea, how I can see the "groupname" in my report?

thanks

Mike

Re: groupname missing

The group name is not part of a contact record as it is not kept in a contact field. Simple, "dirty" solution: Add a column to your Excel list after the export and paste the group name in.

Re: groupname missing

Hi Andreas,
thanks very much for your answer. With that solution, I guess i will create a field in the contact refering to the group - so basically double the groupname and than have it available in my contact.

By the way, do you know what is behind the groupname field in the CONTACT area.

thanks again
Mike

Re: groupname missing

That's something very "technical": it is a relation table in the SQL database. The relation table only contains GUIDs of contacts and GUIDs of groups (A GUID is a unique "number".)
