How can I populate contact records with data derived from the account with which they are associated?
We populated Sugar CRM with data from a database that lacked the discrete fields that SugarCRM has. So, contacts came into Sugar as First and Last names, and they were associated with the correct account. However, no other account information populated the contact records (e.g., street address, city, state, zip code of the account). When I search for contacts in a given city, for example, I get no hits. To find which contacts are located in a given city, I have to manually enter this information in each contact record, then do the search. I am looking for a way to automatically populate contact records with this associated information.
