There is a small problem I'm having with Outlook 2007 and it's driving me nuts.  I've changed the default "File As" format to "First Name Last Name" and that part is working well.  However, the display at the top of the address cards is still "Last Name, First Name" and if I customize the view to sort by "File As" it sorts by last name, first name even though the contact screen is first name last name in the file as field.  How can I fix this so everything is :First Name Last Name:"?

Changing the default FileAs will affect new contacts, but will not change the formatting on existing contacts.

Please have a look at this similar question from yesterday for a bit of VBA code that can help you apply the changes to your existing contacts.
