How do I delete a Contact entry when an invalid ENTRYID was passed



I recently "synchronized" my Sony T610 cell phone contacts into MS
Outlook-Personal Address Book. The data can be seen in Contacts but cannot
be deleted. Deleted pretends to work but it doesn't remove the contact.
When I try to obtain the entry's properties I get an error, (Microsoft Office
Oulook) "The properties dialogue box could not be displayed. An invalid
ENTRYID was passed in."

How do I delete the bad entry, overwrite the Contacts file or otherwise fix
the problem??

Too easy. I had this same problem and couldn't seem to find a straight, or
easy answer.

Go to the pull down menu in Outlook. Select "Go" "Contacts". I made sure
that the Address Cards button was selected. From there I could see all my
invalid (blank) address cards. I simply deleted all of those and the
invalid entry IDs are gone!

That is the easy part. Now figure out how you corrupted those Contacts in
the first place so you can help users avoid making the same mistake.
