  • 3. Automatic area code--how do I change the number
    I am a new Outlook user, so maybe the answer to this is obvious, but when I add a phone number to contacts without an area code, Outlook 2002 supplies one. The one it supplies, however, is my old one. How do I change this? Thanks.

Outlook: Create "company" as a entity and then link it to "contact

Postby U3F1aWRseQ » Tue, 07 Jun 2005 09:20:01 GMT

When many "contacts" are from the same company it will simplify and 
accelarate the process.  It will also reduce risk of error when typing the 
informations of the company each time !
Also, sometimes we only have the name of a biz (as example a restaurant or 
gouvernement).  So they are thereself an entity.
In this file we should be able to see: name of the company, type of biz, 
field of activity, primary contact, contact list link to this company (with 
name, title, biz phone number and biz e-mail.  Those informations should come 
from the "contact" file), general phone number and 1 800 number, adresses of 
the company, web site, notes.
it could be usefull also to have: end of year date, date of creation, 
company number as federal and pronvincial, taxe number, etc.

1.Linking contacts with contacts, getting company name to appear

In contacts, I have a folder for Projects and a folder for Builders.  I want 
to link the Projects with the Builders involved.  The Builder entries all 
have a person listed in the Full Name field (this is the contact person for 
that builder) and the name of the Builder's company is in the Company field.  
When I link the Project to the Builder, the Full Name of the contact person 
for the Builder comes up in the "Contacts..." field (bottom left).  I would 
like the Company Name (the Builder) to appear there instead of the person's 
name.  Is there a way to do this?
Thanks for any help.

3.create new data entity


I would like to add some entity in Outlook.
For example, I would like to manage contract in outlook.
Already defined entities like contact, note, appointment... can be extended 
with new fields, but I do not see how to do to add a really new entity from 
scratch like the contract.
What kind of data element using to store entity data ?

I hope I'm clear enough, otherwise do not hesitate to ask for precisions.

Thanks you.

5.Outlook 2007 - BCM - Create Contact from existing company?

Hello, I was just wondering if there is a way to create a contact from an 
existing company in the Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager. Outlook 2003 
BCM had it and it was great time saver. Adding all of my business cards from 
trips now is almost unbearable as I have to enter all of the information 
manually each and every time.

Any replacements for this? Is it just really hidden or just a missing feature?

Thanks for any advice.
