How do I get Outlook 2007 to alphabetize address book entries under categories?

Just that.

I'm using Outlook 2007 and every time I enter a new entry to address book it lists it at the end of the list under the category that it's in.

I want the entries to be listed alphabetically in categories (not only under the list of all entries).

I've done the official MS suggestion listed Here:

1. Start Outlook.
2. On the Tools menu, click "E-mail accounts".
3. Click "View or change existing directories or address books", and then click Next.
4. Click "Outlook Address Book", and then click "Change".
5. Under Outlook Address Books, click the address book for which you want to change the contact display format . For example, click Contacts: Personal Folders or Contacts: Mailbox – Mailbox name, and then click "File As (Smith, John)".
6. Click "Close", and then click "Finish".
7. YOU MUST Quit and then Restart Outlook for change to take effect.

This does not change the way entries are listed under categories! I want the entries under categories also listed alphabetically!

Anyone know how this might be done? Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by "entries to address book". Are you talking about adding a new Contact item to the Contacts folder or ?

When you say "entry" are you referring to a person (name, e-mail address, etc.)?

Where, specifically, are you seeing these "entries" that are not in alphabetical order?
