Moving spouse field from detail tab to general tab



  • 1. Russ Valentine-please give more info
    Please elaborate on your answer below. Am trying to export from outlook 2003 contacts.pst and then import to outlook 2002 version. Get error. Thank you. This does not fit. You need to pay closer attention to the type of PST file you are actually creating. If you are exporting a PST file that was created anew in Outlook 2003, neither Outlook 2002 nor Outlook 2000 can access it. You must create the old format PST ("Outlook 97-2002") in Outlook 2003 for earlier versions to access it, and you cannot do so with the export function, only the File > New > Outlook Data File... function can create such a file.

    Hi, I have a PST file of Outlook contacts that I am trying to bring back into Outlook 2002. I follow the import/export instructions and everything goes through but I still don't end up with the file being imported. The file was a back-up that I wish to integrate back into Outlook. Thank you, paul
  • 4. Importing/Exporting Contacts - Problem
    We have two new computers in our office which have Windows XP (2002) and Outlook 2003 versions on them, and we have no problem importing & exporting between the two. We have a third computer that has Windows 98 and Outlook 2000. When I try importing to this computer I get an error Outlook.pst is not compatible with this version of the Personal Folders information service. Also I get a message that says Properties for this info service must be defined prior to use. How do I fix this problem? Do I need to update the operating system and also update the version of outlook?

1.General and Details tab - enable tabs with keyboard shortcuts

I have worked out how to use the keyboard for almost all actions in Contact

the mouse for any record-keeping activity, or at least, not the activities I

2.Adding the "Referred by" field to the General or Details Tab

I would like to have a field for each of my outlook contacts to keep track of 
how customers/contacts have found me.  (ie:  internet, personal referral, 
location, phone book, etc.) and I would like to have this field show up on 
the General or Details Tab when I open each individual contact (what is this 
view called, when you have 1 individual contact open?).  

I am about to import about 700 contacts into Outlook 2003 from an excel 
spreadsheet, where the 'source' is already listed.  

I noticed a "referred by" field in the custom mapping, and wouldn't mind 
using that, but I have only been able to figure out how to change 1 contact 
at a time, and only able to insert this field into the 'all fields' tab.

any info is greatly appreciated.
