Modify Outlook Contact Telephone Numbers to Add a 9
Posted on 2009-04-06
I have a problem where I am trying to find a way to use Cisco IP Softphone to dial the numbers held in Outlook 2003 contacts.
The problem is Outlook has the numbers stored without a 9 at the beginning. Is there a way to update ALL of the telephone numbers for ALL contacts so that the STD codes become prefixed with a 9. E.g. both (0114) and 0114 become 90114 and (07807) and 07807 become 907807.
Please note that some are local numbers so may not have an STD code although these could be added if they are a problem.
Also some are international numbers so have two leading zeros.
