    Create a custom contact form - questions before messing things up...

    Hm ... When exporting to .csv - the full name gets additional percentage signs. Have searched on Internet and found some threads in Microsoft's answers forum, but regretfully not the solution. Do you have any idea?

    Create a custom contact form - questions before messing things up...

    Regretfully I had no time to go on with the custom form for contacts. Sorry for the delay. Today I managed to create one and it looks (and also seems to work) like the way I want it. Have set it to be default when adding a new contact. All that is okay. Well, that is to say, I -thought- it...

    Create a custom contact form - questions before messing things up...

    Thank you so much Diane. Ehm... Regretfully I still am not sure. What I meant to say : when I delete the components, with red cross on the right, then, I guess, the layout (on the left) is gone as well(?) It is not something I want to try it out before knowing what damage I might be doing...

    Create a custom contact form - questions before messing things up...

    I am seeking a way to create a custom entry form for Outlook 365 Contacts. This is something totally new to me, so I'd like to ask a few questions before messing things up. 1) Going into Contacts > Create New Contact - I would like to save / backup that form first, as a fallback. Will that then...

    Help .. got lost ... installing Office like 2016

    Thank you Diane. Honestly, I am totally confused. Not by your reply, but simply I am installing the wrong way, or the wrong product... I don't know. So I restored a clean Windows image on my laptop: there are no applications installed, except for the Microsoft default ones. Now, I want to...

    Help .. got lost ... installing Office like 2016

    Intend to install Office on my laptop. On my desktop I use Office 365. When I install Office on my laptop, Outlook starts in OWA mode, not the 2016, with the toolbars. Also the icons of Outlook, Excel, etc. are tiny (in the start menu). I uninstalled Office twice now. Also used the offline...

    Synchronising contacts Outlook 365 with Google v.v.

    I forgot to ask: Outlook Contacts has first name, last name, full name, etc. So, there could be John Doe - with full address/email blah blah Lady Doe - same However, when sending an invitation, or something, the address would read like: Mr and Mrs Doe I am sure you have thought of a...

    Synchronising contacts Outlook 365 with Google v.v.

    As always, many thanks Diane. Indeed Companionlink looks really fine. Maintaining addresses has always been a bit of a problem, resulting in keeping various Excel lists up to date and then importing them into Outlook. It starts with the issue of having in Excel: - full/complete addresses (i.e...

    Synchronising contacts Outlook 365 with Google v.v.

    Forgot to add the background of above post... Importing / exporting using .csv may bring along some additional issues. For example, within Excel, one needs to remember to change the 'phone number'-cells' properties into 'Text' Also, at least in my case, I need to add a leading '0' to the phone...

    Synchronising contacts Outlook 365 with Google v.v.

    Right now I use a complex way of maintaining contacts, using Excel sheets, creating .csv files, importing here and there. In case of any changes I use a small list of places that should be updated, like in some Excel workbooks and .csv lists, in Outlook contacts, in Google contacts. Probably I...

    Outlook 365 - suddenly unable to send using Gmail POP3

    Hi Diane, meanwhile found the solution: change a registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.3\Client set Enabled to 0 (it is set to 1 by default) see TenForums: Outlook cannot connect to GMail - Windows 10 Help Forums and Gmail...
