From paragraph 3 of the web page you were given:

•What version(s) of the product(s) you are using. "Outlook 2007",

"PowerPoint 2003", etc.

•What operating system you are using them on. Vista? Windows XP Pro?

Windows XP Home? Mac OSX?

•What specifically are you trying to do? "I want to create a document with

Word 2007 as a form letter and mail merge addresses and relevant details

from my Outlook 2007 contacts folder"

•What, specifically, happens when you try? "Every time I try to print the

document I get an error message that says....:"

•What, specifically does the error message say: "The error says 'Error

12345 - Can't print the document because your coprocessor is out of

memory.'"

•What steps have you already taken to try and fix the problem? "I've

already applied Service Pack 1, and I followed the steps in KB Article

3332222."

Why would all that be necessary when i selected all those options to get to

this forum?

Anyway, not to waste any more time, here are the details again:

Outlook 2003

Windows XP

And once again, I cannot edit the field. Which means that I cannot make

changes to the field. I ope this is clear enough.

Have you enabled in-cell editing? Right-click on the "Click here to enter a

new contact" field at the top of the Phone List, right below the header line.

Choose "Other Settings". Check the box labeled "Allow in-cell editing".

Click OK. Now try to change one of those fields. I know for a fact the

Mobile Phone field will be editable. My Phone List view doesn't contain the

E-mail Address (although I know I could add it, it doesn't appear to be in the

default Phone List view).

Yes Brian, the 'Allow in-cell editing' boxed is checked.

Sorry, I was incorrect in saying that the 'Mobile Phone' field could not be

edited. I was just repeating the user's complaints. A bit of frustration I

suppose.

But I am having a problem, and I checked it myself on my own system, with

the 'email' field.

If you have any other suggestions please let me know.

Thank for your assistance.

As far as I can tell, the e-mail field can't be edited in a table view.

Re: Unable to edit - 'email' and 'mobile phone' fields in phone li

You may be viewing it in a "forum" but many of us are viewing this in it's

native form as a newsgroup and none of that information is shown to us.

That's not your fault, just a deficiency in the way the forums and

newsgroups interact.

On to your inquiry...apparently the e-mail field is not editable in-cell in

Table views. I can't say for sure why that is though.

My theory is that because the E-mail (and E-mail2 and E-mail3) field has

properties and is not a unitary field. When you double-click the E-mail field

when viewing a Contact record, you get a properties page that shows the

Display As field, the actual e-mail address, and other data. Changing the

e-mail address via in-cell editiing would disrupt that correspondence.

Just a guess, though.
