We have an outlook 2007 contacts list that has several contacts with # sign or numbers as the file as beginning.   These contacts though often have Full Name entries that differ slightly.

When we go to the address book icon on outlook toolbar, several contacts are missing and / or very hard to find because the full name is not how we know the names.   Cant we get the address book to colum itself out using file as names so it will jive with how we know the names in the contacts folder ??

Just appears we need a little instruction on how the address book in 2007 outlook correlates to the actual contacts list.

While in Outlook contacts:
View -> Current View
By default selecting 'Address Cards' uses [file as].
However you can either 'Customize Current View' or 'Define View' to further achieve your goal.

If your using the 'Outlook Data Files' view and are missing the 'File As' column:
View -> Current View -> Customize Current View -> Fields
You can add the 'File As' column from there.
