Contact list reordering

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
The contacts in Outlook which are used for my email address book are taken from the "Full Name" column. That list is, unfortunately a mishmash of first and last name formats. The "File As" column is correctly formatteed. How can I get my address book to extract the "File As" column, rather than the "Full Name"column?

Thanks in advance

File, Accoumt settings, address book tab. Double click on the Outlook address book and change the order in the dialog that opens.
