I am using Outlook 2002.
Trying to print out the contacts as telefonlist I get the header of the list in the local installed language (as shown in Outlook).

Is there a way to customize the output? I want to change for instance the header of the column 'company' from German to French.

Is a change possible at all? Only permanently or only temporarely for the present print job?

How to solve this problem in Outlook 2010? (don't have the program - but perhaps you can confirm that it can be changed there as i wish)

Treppenmeister,

in Outlook 2007 is an option to change the header by clicking with the right mouse button and then define column.

It is al long time ago than I have used Outlook 2002 but isn't this option also aviable??

I found it. This works also for 2002. Thanks.
I can rename so 'company', 'phone', ...

But when I decide to print instead of table style in memo style then I get again the original  values. Is it possible  to change them too?

Hmm, in Outlook 2007 I see the same header in memo style and in sable style.
and because I don't have Office 2002 anymore i'm nto sure.

If you look at a print-preview do you see the original values to or have they changed into the values you added?

In the preview I see unfortunately the original ones.
It seems so whether i can change only the header for the table view.

Unfortunately these changes are valid for ALL contacts. Is this in 2007 the same? Or can you  personalise each contacts folder separately?

I see what you mean. In Outlook 2007 there still is the same problem. In table-style it works ok but in Memo-style it does not.

I have not found a solution for your problem. Is it an option to mailmerge all contacts to MS-Word and then print the list??

If so you can follow the next steps:
   1. In either the Outlook shortcuts or the folder list, click the Contacts folder.
   2. On the Tools menu, click Mail Merge.
   3. Click Mailing Labels under Document type, click New Document under Merge to, and then click OK.
   4. In Microsoft Word, click Complete Setup.
   5. Click Create, click Mailing Labels, and then click Setup.
   6. Click the label type, click OK, and then click Close.
   7. On the Mail Merge toolbar, click Insert Merge Fields. Add fields to the label, and then click Close.
   8. Click Propagate Labels, and then on the Mail Merge toolbar, click Merge to document.
   9. Click All, and then click OK.

This was one of the options which we had before too. Finally it would be only a workaround. The direct print would be much easier and would work also without an installed word.

Another option would be using another program for printing the data. Have to look still for a while. I will let this still open some days before I give the points.
