I just upgrated from Office 2000 to Office XP. In my address book  from Outlook it takes the names in my contact list that are in outlook file (that are sorted as I want, ex. by last name) but in the address book, it shows the same names but only by firts name and there are no tools to sort it by anything else ? How can that be and what can I do to sort it like the contact list ? Thnak you

    Try this
    open outlook
    go to tools --> email account ---> view or change existing directories or address book and click on next
    double-click outlook address book
    and choose the option (file as)
    now close it

    now press address book in outlook and check if it is showing last name first name
