Contacts not sorting in "File As" sort order

For some reason my contacts have started sorting themselves in " First, Last name" order instead of " Last, First name" as they have previously been sorted. I have checked a few contacts and the " File as" field is showing correctly. The sort order is definitely set to " File as - ascending" .

I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows 7 Home premium.

If I change the file as filed for a contact to first, last, save and change back to last first, it seem to recognise the new order. This could be painful for several hundred contacts.

I have just synced Outlook to a new HTC Desire smart phone. not sure if this caused it. Also, yesterday Outlook did not shut down and I had to force it to end, seemed to re-open OK.

It seems like the indexing file may be corrupt, can this file be deleted and forced to regenerate?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.
