The fullname contains the first and last name as specified in the
organization settings. Go to Settings / System Settings. There is a combobox
defining how the fullname is calculated. If it is "First Last", change it to
"Last, First". After you changed this setting, the fullname will contain the
desired format and your views are sorted the way you want. The problem is
that the full names of existing records are not updated automatically. You
will get the old "First Last" until you update them.

If this doesn't answer the question: you can add the last name field to the
contact views and use it for sorting.

Outlook Contacts Cards, Shortcut Possible?
In the Outlook (2003) Folder List under Contacts, if you open a particular card, in a particular card's window, on the General tab, you have drop-down options of saving with different arrangements of the Name. The different arrangements will place the card in a different alphabetical position when you view the whole folder. But sometimes a card deserves to be in more than one alphabetical position, perhaps both under the first name *and* the last name. And sometimes a card deserves to be in more than one Contact folder. You could save copies of the card with different names, but then ea...

maximizing MDI child view
Hi, When you maximize a view in an MDI app, all the other open views become maximized as well. Is there anyway to stop this behaviour? If the user maximized one view, I don't want to maximize all the others on him/her! Thanks I think you are maximizing the frame window, not the view. That's why they all follow since they all use the same frame. All of the views in one child frame will get maximized as well.

Outlook 2010 Calendar view

Forms and old contacts.......
Hi U all...... Is there a way to change the form of an existing contact in Outlook 2002? I have emigrated to a new PC, but my forms didn't survive the move. So I have made a new form, but in my contacts subfolders all my contact are opened with the default form. I have gotten to this point that all new contacts are given the new form, but what about the old ones? If Outlook can change all contact to use default form, there surely must be a way to change it back, but I can't find it in the help file.... -- -- Regards Zadig Galbaras a perturbed Norwegian agnostic ...
