    Outlook XP

    Outlook 2000 automatically formatted a contact phone number into the standard (nnn) nnn-nnnn. All I had to do was enter the 10 number string. Outlook XP (2002) leaves it as an unformatted string, with a useless smart tag that adds a country code without my telling it to. I cannot find anything in Tools to get back what was a great little feature.

    Re: Outlook 2002

    MaryJ - Thanks for your help. For now, this problem has gone away. This a.m. everything is working fine. No idea why the behavior shifted for a day or two. The version is 10.0, build 2625, subset 2625.
    Maybe what I'm seeing is not a SmartTag. As soon as I place the cursor in any blank or filled telephone field, a small square icon with a pencil appears to the right of that entry field. Clicking it opens up a box that clarifies country code, area code, exchange, etc.
