Contact sort order not working in Outlook 2010?

We have our contacts set to lastname first, firstname last sort order. Yet when we open the address book or go for autocomplete, all contacts are still sorted by firstname first. Can't seem to get this to change.....   any suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Hello Frank,

Auto-complete contacts and Contacts, both are different things. Even though, you have updated the sort settings of contacts, but the auto-complete contacts might still using the same order to display contacts. Delete the NK2 file beforehand to see the changes how Outlook is sorting or screening contacts in To fields next.

Alternative Solution: Nirosoft NK2Edit Tool
