I am using Outlook 2007 and would like to have a couple of the fields from the "All Fields" section appear on the "Details" page. Is there anyway to do this without getting into VB programming?

You can't modify the details page, but you can add a custom page then just drag and drop the fields on..

Open a contact item, click on Design this form on the developer tab on the ribbon, select an unused form ie P.2 and drag the fields from the toolbox.

With what you want to do there will be no programming involved!

Mike,

You will have a problem though, because the template that is loaded in design mode is not the one used by Microsoft. It is different. For example is the Picture feature missing in the default form layout and it also looks different. See this Microsoft KB article (which does not provide a solution for the problem :though ( )  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823133
