Normalizing Phone Numbers in Outlook Contacts
Posted on 2010-01-01
I have a very Pesky customer that would now like to have all of his Outlook phone numbers look the same. A lot of the numbers are imports from Act, other contact lists etc. So some of them are formatted as xxxxxxxxxx, some xxx-xxx-xxxx and others the way he'd like to see them (xxx) xxx-xxxx. The settings in the modem and dialing options are correct and newly entered numbers are fine, it's just all of the old numbers that are the issue. The only way I know how to fix this would be to manually enter each contact and erase a single number of the phone number and retype it which will automatically format correctly.
Outlook is 2007 and Windows is XP Pro.
