Microsoft Outlook 2003 Address Book Sort issue
Posted on 2007-04-09
I have two problems with Microsoft Outlook 2003 address book.
First, when I create a new email I will type on the TO.... line part of the the name of the person I would like to email to. Outlook will suggest a name with part of the letters I have type. example: I will start typing conn
and Outlook will display a name Connie Parker. The first problem I have is that Outlook will only do this for a couple of names from my address book. if I type first name or last name "Cliff" nothing will show up. I can click on the TO... button and select him from the address book that away.
Second, when I try to type by last name it does not work. I would like to have my email address listed by last name. Example: if I type Parker it will not show that address or any other last name that I typed. It only works by first name. The Address book has three categories. Name: - Display Name: - Email Address:.
The Address book list by Name Category, first name last name, display name, email address.
This is what I have tried so far to fix the problem.
1.Open Contacts, click on customize current view, click on sort, under sort items by I chose Last Name.
2.Open contacts, double click on Connie Parker address. change the File as: Parker, Connie
