Address Book Customisation



  • 1. Use categories set up in Outlook 07 to filter Word 07 mail merge?
    I have all my contacts in Outlook 07 set up in categories by function for use in Outlook and for easier use on my Treo 700 when synched. I had hoped to also be able to filter on the category basis for a mail merge in Word 07 for e-mails, labels, etc., but the category field doesn't appear. Is there a way to get the category field to appear as a filter? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! I'm shocked this functionality isn't already there, as the categories are a great way to segregate contacts. I'm hoping it's there and I've just missed it. Thanks!
  • 2. Open Shared Contacts - seeing other address books.
    Running Outlook 2003 via Citrix. In Contacts Open Shared Address Books. Only see Contacts in main Contacts folder. Have created other folders and Shared via Properties. Users can only see main Contacts folders not other address books. E.g. User has golf club contacts address book and shares with others. PS we are not using Public Folders
  • 3. create a letter from office 2007 contacts like in office 2003
    in office 2003 outlook contacts you could click action then new letter to contact and outlook would puyt the address in a word document automatically. is this not possible in office 2007?
  • 4. Why is 'Show this folder as an e-mail address book' disabled?
    So many controls on dialogs in Office 2007 seem to bo disbled even though I am this machine's only user (and, therefore, I assume that I am a supervisor). The above mentioned control is on the Outlook Address Book tab of the Contacts Properties dialog.

I am using Outlook 2003.

I am aware that you cannot customise the fields/columns displayed in the 
address book. Does/will Outlook 2007 fix this limitation?

5.Disappearing Public Folders Address Book

    I've been having a recurring problem with a client using XP Pro
workstations and SBS 2003.  One particular workstation, ironically the
one relying on the address book the most, keeps having issues with not
being able to access the shared contacts list published to public
folders.  The outlook clients are setup to use this address book at the
default address list.  The customer relies heavily on the shared fax
service, and that is where the problem occurs most.  Sometimes 2-3
times in a day, while in the shared fax wizard, they will click on the
Address Book button and get a blank shared contacts list.  Generally
restarting outlook and then restarting the send fax wizard cures it
temporarily (as does a reboot).  But it keeps happening on a regular
basis.  I've done the initial stuff, reloaded outlook and reloaded the
shared fax client to no avail.  None of the other workstations have
this problem.  I'm quite clueless as to where to begin troubleshooting
this problem.
