I upgraded my wife's Sony Vaio laptop from Office 2007 to Office 2010. Since the upgrade, the contact list is blank. There is a strip at the top that is like a progress bar that continually scrolls. This is when it is Phone view. If I click on List view, then Business Card view, then Contacts view and then back to Phone view, the contacts show up, however they are not alphabetized. If I make any changes at all to the contacts, for example ascending or descending, the progress bar comes back and the process starts all over again. At first I thought that the contacts just had to index, but after running all night the silly thing was still scrolling the progress bar and no contacts. I am also bothered by the fact that when they do show up, they are not in alphabetically order.
I had read on another forum that a guy had success with this problem by uninstalling 2010 and the uninstall 2007 and reinstall 2010. I did this and no change. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
