There are a few different ways to bring up the Contact Search Center (CSC) in GoldMine in order to find a record. The CSC, by the way, is this:
It is what we all use dozens of times a day to find a contact or company in GoldMine. My favorite way of bringing this up is to simply double-left-click on the field that I want to search by. So, if I want to find someone by their company name, I’d double-click on the company field.
After double-clicking on the company field the CSC is displayed with the lookup set to company. (Just like the first graphic).
You can double-click on any of GoldMine’s fields, except for E-Mail, to lookup by email do a right-click on Email and choose Lookup E-mail.

So, the spring season has now begun and, it’s time for some Spring cleaning on our GoldMine database!
Today’s tip is how to do a ‘Merge Purge on Tagged Records’. When a merge/purge is done we combine two records into one. Information on the contacts, details, referrals, history, links, opportunity, and project tabs will be combined into a single record. For fields like contact, company, etc. the record we tag first will win. If the first record tagged is missing information, say a fax number, but the second tagged record isn’t, the fax number will be populated in the surviving record. This is my favorite method for removing duplicate records from my GoldMine!
First, we need to Tag two records.
In GoldMine Premium Edition, we’ll still do this within the Search Center, but just click the check boxes to the two duplicates.
After tagging two records you’ll notice that GoldMine is telling you that you have two tagged records.
There is no undo after a merge/purge so be sure you have the correct two records tagged. Check and Double-Check!
With the two records tagged choose Tools | Data Management| Merge/Purge Records |Merge Tagged Records from the main menu.
GoldMine will warn you…
Click Yes to complete the Merge/Purge.
