    Displaying contacts First name Last name

    Anyone know how to display contacts with First and Last name as opposed to Last, first?

    I want it to read John Madden, as opposed to Madden, John.

    When you enter a contact's info, there is a setting for "Display As", which can show the name as "John Smith" instead of "Smith, John" or vica versa.

    Here's another option if you have a lot of contacts in Outlook:

    Microsoft Outlook - Sort using "File As" field within Contacts

    yeah, outlook and the 760 have the same option when adding a new contact... it's 'File as'(or something like that)... you can pick how it's displayed. it 2 or 3 under where you enter the display name

    I think my version of Outlook did not have the file as... and I had to add a helper application... which is covered in the above link.

    I had too many contacts to transfer and had to convert them before the transfer or I would have had to do each one individually.

    Thanks! I have too many contacts to change 1 by 1, this will be a life saver!
