Re-ordering Address Books in Office 2003

I've recently upgraded to Office 2003 and cannot find the place that lets me order the address books are searched when it is looking up email addresses in a particular profile.  You used to be able to specify the search order in the profile in the old version.  Is it anywhere in the new version?

Hi Peter044,

When you open outlook 2003, there is an Address Book button in the Standard tool bar. Open this and in in Tools > Options there is the listing of your Outlook address books and the option of re-ordering the way the list is checked through. You simply need to highlight and press the top or down button to reorder the list. Make sure the radio button is checked.

Also you can click on contacts in outlook and on the left pane where My Contacts are displayed, you could right click and select move down or move up.

Hope this helps.
