In Outlook 2007, the Contacts box for linking items to contacts does not appear by default. You will need to turn it on -- Tools | Options | Contact Options | Show Contact Linking on All Forms.

Sue, Thank you so much.You will not believe how frustrating it has been to
sort this out. I have been adding the Contact names manually and it takes
ages as i have several hundred names on file!
it was also very irritating to try to find my way through the Microsoft
website to try to get help, and to find that the MS Training Courses don't
help with these finer details of the system. perhaps i am getting elderly
and irritable!
I am very grateful for you taking the trouble to help me.
many thanks.

Do you mean the New Appointment for Contact command? You can add it to the Quick Access Toolbar that appears above the contact ribbon.
