    Hi gang,
    I am using Outlook 2003 French Canadian version.
    Some French last names have a syllable that doesn't have the first letter capitalized i.e. Robert des Cars.
    The first name is "Robert" and the last name is "des Cars".
    I enter this name in my contacts using the Complete Name entry screen to ensure that the first and last names are in the right position.
    Even with "des Cars" as last name the "File under" field comes up with "Cars, Robert des".
    It needs to be "des Cars, Robert" because this guy needs to be filed under the "Ds" and not the "Cs".
    On the other hand, if I put the name "Robert Beaujeux des Cars" and have "Beaujeux des Cars" as last name he gets filed under the "Bs".
    Anything I can do to force Outlook to file Mr. des Cars in the Ds?
    Tks.

    Hi JC

    So when this happens, can't you just click in the file as field and type in des Cars, Robert?
    Then it should take it and file it accordingly under the d's.

    I don't have 2k3 here but that works with 2k2.

    Not quite there yet.
    It works and the contact gets filed under the Ds.
    But if I want to display the company name with the contact name in the address card (or the detailed address card) I get the person and company name on the same line instead of on two lines like it does for my other contacts.
    Any suggestions?

    Try using the null space created by entering Alt-numkey-255 as your space as in "*" (which is an admittedly ugly kluge).
