Inconsistent addresses in Exchange contacts and address book

LarryDAH asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
We have an Exchange 2003 contact list with some 2000+ names in it The contact list has the 'Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book' checked so users can see it in Outlook. The problem is  that some data is missing if we look at Contacts with the icon under All Public Folders we can find the listing in Contacts for this one particular company but if we look for it under the address book icon it is not there.

I have added a new entry under Contacts and seen it appear in the address book and vice versa so it seems to be working properly except for this one entry (and maybe others). What could cause this? I have forced a download in Outlook (F9) but no joy.
