    Issue Synching contacts

    Advertisement



    I am hoping someone will have a simple fix for me on this one.

    My outlook on my desktop is set to store contacts as FIRST NAME then LAST NAME. However, when I add a contact in my BB and then go to synch using DM, they are stored as LAST,FIRST and I have to manually go in and change each one. Is there any way to fix this?

    Open address book on your curve. Menu>options and change Sort By to "First Name">menu>save.

    I have already done this. They are sorted by FIRST LAST in my BB, and in my outlook. It only happens when I add the contact to my BB and then synch. Then it gets changed in outlook to Last,First.

    Do you have your outlook overwriting your bb or vice versa?

    I hope I am reading correctly - but try this: in Outlook Contacts, go to Options, Contact Options, change the Default "File As" Order.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Dolphin. However, that is the problem. The File As order in Outlook and on my BB are both First Last - however when I add a new contact to my BB and synch, they change to last,first in outlook.
