How do I change the Addres Book in Outlook 2000 to show names as Last Name, First name?

When I go to Address book, I can view hte GAL in the Last Name, First name format, but if I drop down to Contacts from that view, it shows the names as First name Last name.

Thank you,

Hi CPChem1,
Go to TOols->Options->Contact Options and change it there.

I had already done this. No change. I exited Outlook and went back in after I made the change.  There is no change.  Is this an Exchange werver issue?

You need to change it there too:
Go to Email Accounts > View or change existing directories or address books;
select your address book, then modify..
there you can change the display mode for last name, first name
