missing merge date field after converting to Act 2008

Hi,

I have been in the process of converting from ACT! 6 to ACT! 2008.  One of the last problems I have is that the merge date field is missing after I convert the database.  Did they replace this field with something else, remove it altogether, or did I do something wrong?

Before converting, I compressed and reindexed, ran ActDiag.exe, ran red flags, fixed all problems, then converted Custom because we had some custom address fields.

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Was this a custom layout?  If it is, you will need to convert the layout also.

Yes, this is a Custom layout and I did convert all layouts. Once I converted, the merge date was gone.  I tried to re-add the field but the merge date is not in field list.
