BusFax entry causes dupl Address Entry


J

JonR451

Is there a work-around for this? If I enter a business
fax number in a contact, then the Address Book shows two
entries for a single contact. If I remove the Bus Fax
entry, then the Addr Book only shows one entry and typing
the contact's name pulls the email address without
intervention.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

The standard behavior for the Outlook Address book is to display all
electronic addresses (both fax and e-mail). That behavior cannot be changed.
The only way to prevent the display of fax numbers is to store them in a
different field or to disguise them (e.g., precede them with an alpha
character) so that Outlook won't recognize them as phone numbers.
There are also a number of utilities available that can do this for you
automatically. Some are listed here:

As far as Outlook is concerned, a fax number is one type of electronic address and it creates an address book entry for each address associated with a contact. You can suppress display of the fax numbers in the address book by preceding the number with an alphabetic character -- e.g." F:"

You can also use MVP Ricardo Silva's Hide Fax add-in to suppress the display of fax numbers automatically -- http://pwp.netcabo.pt/rsoutlook/US/rshifa.htm

I put an "F:" in front of every fax number in my Contacts
and still cannot get it to auto complete address. I have
made sure that the Automatic email completion is checked
under Advanced settings in email options. What do you
think?

Thanks for your help,
Hannah
