ACT!2008 custom tables in Groups/Lookups

I would like to consider ACT!2008 as a devevelopment platform and since I am a newcomer, I would like to ask : is it possible to use the fields of a custom table in groups and lookups in ACT!2008 ? ie if I store the cars of each contact, can then I use the cars properties (model, make) to select contacts in a group ?

mvourakis,

The addition of custom one-to-many tables are rumored for the near future.  You'd be better off waiting for that.  If you can't wait you might want to build a stand alone MS Access database to store the one-to-many relationship.  

You should sign-up on this ACT! sponsored developer site - http://actdevnet.com/.  They have sample code there that you can use.

If you are still working on this, there are now tools to create an manage the custom tables witn 10.02, 10.03 or 11.0

I use itTables for this. You can get a trial from http://www.glcomputing.com.au/main/62/1
