Can I display the e-mal contact list as last name, first name?
New to Outlook 2003. When I open a contact list to address an e-mail, the
names are displayed firt name, last name. I don't like this. Can I have the
list displayed last name, first name as in the actual contact card? Thanks.

I currently have an exchange 2003 box in a Server 2003 domain. I have
150 odd workers in the field who carry cell phones. I created a
Distribution List in a public folder, and used the [add new...] button
to place each cell users "text message" address in the list.
(firstname.lastname@example.org is the format). I did not create contacts or
domain/email accounts for these users. They exist no where except for
in this DL.
Yesterday, I sent an email to email@example.com (supervisors is
the list name) from my local exchange account using outlook and all

I have a client who is unable to send to a list of

Outlook as well, and the same browser.
Does anyone know if this could be from an Outlook
setting? I have searched the help index and have found
nothing. I have also checked the code behind the site,
and its clean.
I would really appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

t...Linking body text to multilevel lists that update
When writing large documents with numbered multilevel lists, is it possible
to link body text to the numbers so that they both change together?
For example: (Text for section 3.5)
3.1.5 Refer to item 2.1.
If the document gets revised, and section 2.1 becomes section 3.1, it
automatically updates (numbering), but the text in what is now section 4.1.5
still refers to section 2.1, which is incorrect. Can these be linked so that
when the number becomes 3.1 (in the numbered multilevel list), the body text
will also update automatically?

I have a workbook that I've just added data validation to one cell. FWIW,
the data validation is based on a named range. Here's the (perceived)
problem. When I've set up data validation in the past, the selection is the
same width as the cell. In this case, the list starts almost a full cell
width to the left. What am I missing?
In Excel2003 I can replicate what you describe under the following conditions:

I would like to append a row to a list box row source that uses a query as
it's source. I can think of a way to do this using a union query - but would
like to know if there are other options.
If the RowSource is a query, then your only option is to add the record to
the source of the query, either by adding it to the underlying table, or
creating a UNION query that joins the new data to the existing data.
