Getting Contact Name to show on Calendar

Using OL2010 32bit, seems the only way to see "who" a Calendar actlivity is scheduled for/with is to type it in to the Subject line. Is there a setting I am missing to have OL show the Contact Name on scheduled activities?

File, Options, Calendar options and enable the option for contact linking.

to use: type the contacts name in the contact field on the appointment form.

Thank you for the reply,

Yes on both accounts, I have the option checked and have entered the name, or selected the name from the "Contacts..." field dropdown, but still don't see the contact name in the Calendar for that scheduled activity. I've tried every way I can find to schedule the activity including "Sending" the notice and still, the Contact name hasn't shown on the Scheduled Activity in the Calendar. Maybe need to customize the Calendar Form? Seems like a simple request, but, the main reason I need it in there is to have the Contact name show up for the Calendar Activity Report for my manager. My only option has been to type the Contact name in the Subject field.
