OL2003 Company View Issue


Joe McGuire

NOt the biggest problem but it is a puzzle. For most of my contacts I have
an entry for Company and when arrange them by Company (View, Arrange...) it
works fine. If I get two versions of the same company it's always because I
typed some tiny difference. But for many of my contacts there is no Company
(i.e., the Company field is blank). Yet when I arrange the contacts by
Company the first two entries are "Company (none)(x items)" and "Company
(none)(y items)." What is causing OL to treat these contacts differently? I
have checked several from the two different "Nones" to make sure that the
Company field is blank, i.e., no spaces, no other characters, just as blank
as I can get the things.

This puzzle has been around a long time (many versions of Outlook). It's not
just Company that does it. I see it frequently with Category none (2 groups
of None).

Maybe someone knows why? I've never solved it but haven't tried to either -
I just treat it as another Outlook quirk.

In my experience its by age - older ones in one group, new in the other. I
believe this is due to using different profiles to create the contacts or
methods to add them - all the ones created by the current profile are in a
group and those by other profiles or synced from my BB are in another group.

You can drag them from one group to another so you have just one group.
