Abe R. Donian

How do I batch change " file as" configuration of my contacts in Outlook 2010? I have a bunch of contacts, and I don't fancy changing them individually in " file as" from LastName|FirstName to FirstName|LastName.

Any help appreciated! Thanks.

Since any change to the FileAs format only applies to newly created contacts, essentially, your only option would be to write your own code to bulk change the format.

That said, you may find ContactGenie Toolkit ( of interest (one of the Toolkit functions is bulk standardization of the FileAs field among the 25+ functions available)
