I am unable to add outlook 2007 contact address to a 2007 word doc. I know about adding the addressbook icon to the QAT but when i use that it only adds the name of the contact, not the address...any help is appreciated

Does this happen with all contacts or just one?

Yes. Read the instructions. They are very simple.Russ Valentine

This is a Word issue, not Outlook. You need to modify the AddressLayout Autotext entry. Read instructions here:http://www.gmayor.com/Macrobutton.htmRuss Valentine

Russ,

Any idea what would cause Word to need that? (Mine just works...)

No idea what changed AddressLayout in this instance. The one posted in Graham's article is the usual default for Word, so it should work that way.Russ Valentine

Thanks folks...looked at the gmayor site

seems to be relatively easy..is it just open word and hit alt f3, then name it addresslayout?? or do i need to setup and define the autotext?? really not clear to me...if the current command is yielding only the name, why will this small change result in the name + address??

thanks for the help...much appreciated

OK getting closer!! i took the text from the gmayor site created the addresslayout autotext and all seemed good...but when i use the button on the QAT..same thing..just name. so i went into autotext and found the new entry and hit insert and now i get the actual text in the entry

{<PR_GIVEN_NAME> <PR_SURNAME>

}{<PR_COMPANY_NAME>

}{<PR_POSTAL_ADDRESS>}

weird

so 1. i need to get the insert to work right and 2. i also need to re define the button on the QAT to run the new entry...is that correct... BTW interesting problem....

thanks

been fiddling with this...so the situation is that i can use the PR commands to insert name, ph#, company but anything related to the address does not insert

so PR_Postal_code or PR_Postal_Address....just give blank lines....

any thoughts

OK

got it....some addresses work OK..others just insert the name, i do not know why...they all seem fine, but i have been using Outlook for years back to the 90's so perhaps the older contacts did not import properly???

anyway to fix this??

If you've ever imported Contacts there is a very good chance they didn't import properly. That's why you never use import to transfer Outlook data. Just copy the Outlook data file and open it to transfer data.Russ Valentine
