    Address Format (2003)

    The problem I am experiencing is that my Outlook is changing the way my address look in my contacts.
    This is what I want it to look like:
    John Doe
    223 W Downy St.
    Bourbon, IN 46504
    This is what it is changing it to:
    John Doe
    223 W Downy St.
    46504 Bourbon In
    United States of America

    How do I get it to stop formatting my addresses the second way that I listed?

    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Thank you Hans,

    Is there any way to change all of the addresses in my contacts instead of going through them one at a time to get rid of the country fields?

    Re: Address Format (2003)

    From How can I remove "United States of America" from contacts?:
    <hr>While in Outlook's contact list, change the view to "By Location" (View->Current View->By Location).
    Now select one or more of the contacts with USA in the "Country/Region" field and drag them to a contact with a blank "Country/Region" field.
    The "Country/Region" will be changed to blank, but the rest of the information will not be altered.

    You have to use the "By Location" view - sorting them by the country field in a different view won't work the same way!<hr>
    Hope this helps!

    Thank you Hans,

    I will give it a shot and see if it makes this a little bit less time intensive.

    Thanks again,
