    Address Book display (2002)

    Click Tools | Address Book (or Ctrl-Shift-[img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] to display the Outlook Address Book form. Question:
    how can I change the way rows are displayed here? My list shows FirstName <space> Lastname etc.
    and I'd like to see LastName, <space> Firstname.

    On some setups, this is governed by Tools|Options|Preferences|Contacts|Contact Options.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    I have been there and have set the "file as" order to last then first, but that has no effect on the Address Book display list. Thanks, though.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    I think that setting it only affects new entries. You are using Contacts, not a PAB? There was a whole thread about this annoyance a few months ago; if you set the default as you want, make a backup of your Contacts, export all your Contacts to CSV, delete them all and reimport them from the CSV, it's supposed to fix the problem, but what a pain.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    We're using Contacts and a Public Contacts folder on Exchange. I'd say if user's have to export and import, etc. this issue
    has just been downgraded to a non-issue. I'll just tell 'em no can do. BUT! thanks for filling me in.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    Good man! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> From my Home XP DUN installation, the menu to access it is just a little different: Tools | E-Mail Accounts | Directory - View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books button | Next > | select the Book | Change | File as (Smith, John) button. Eeha!

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    Good news! A co-working clicking around in Outlook found the answer:

    In Outlook 2000 click:

    Tools | Services | (Services Tab) | Outlook Address Book | Properties | "Your Public Contacts List". In "Show Names by", select File As "Last First". This setting assures that the names in the Insert Address dialog in Word are sorted by last name. Success!

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    I think that means you have Outlook 2002 installed, correct? I edited my post to say Outlook 2000...

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    I have 2000 on Exchange Server at work, and XP at home on DUN. But your 'click crazy user' found the answer to an annoyance that has plagued anyone who uses Contacts as their Outlook Address Book and wants e-mail addresses to appear sorted by Last, First. So we have an answer for both 2000 and XP.

    That's good. I'll tell Hubert he's done an admirable thing and wins the praise of WMVP and Lounger alike.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    Kevin, I tried following your directions and I do not have an option called "Services" under my Tools. I am at my Inbox and I click on Tools from the Menu bar. Is this where I should be?

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    Which version of Outlook? If XP, see my followup post above.

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    If you have Outlook 2000, you'll have Tools | Services; if you have Outook 2002, it'll be Tools | Email Accounts. If you have any other version of Outlook, I don't know what it says (probably Tools | Services).

    Do you have Tools | Email Accounts? If so, JohnB shows how to get at the Show names by setting. You can get there a number of ways (via the profile, via the menu and via taxi cab if you know what you're doing...

    To reiterate John's instructions:

    Tools | Email Accounts | Directory (View or change...) | Outlook Address Book | Change --> File As..

    Re: Address Book display (2002)

    John, I am with you until your instructions say "select the book". I show Microsoft Exchange Server, not any books. I am using OL2002. Am I completely thick today?
