    Outlook Groups (XP)

    I have many contacts that I would like to group together. Any simple way of "drag and drop" or any other way of moving/copying them in a New Group without having to select them one by one?

    HELP !!!!

    Yes there is a way. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Sort them in a way that collects them together

    Click on the first
    Shift-Click on the last
    Ctrl-click on any you don't want
    Drag to target folder

    Hope that helps

    If you don't want to set up separate contact folders you can set your view to sort and group on just about any field. When in the contact folder: View menu | Current View |. At this point you can pick one of several pre-built views or choose Customize Current View and set you own criteria. The end result will be that contacts are grouped under a header row, which displays the value of the contacts under it.

    There was a discussion on this very topic in WOW some time back. The general idea is that you open two Outlook windows for Contacts at the same time and place them side by side. In one window, use a view that makes it easy to find the individual contacts. In the other window view by Category. Now you can drag and drop one or more contacts from the individual view into the appropriate categories.

    Search the WOW archives and you'll find the full discussion and details.
