Separate fields for Address, City, State & Zip

The data in the Business Address field of Contact Manager should be separated
into individual fields (Adddress, City, State, Zip) so accounts with large
numbers of contacts and Mail Point numbers or station codes are not part of
the address sort. For example:
123 Company Lane, MP-15
Your town, State, zip.
In this case with a larger account, it is good to be able to have an
alphabetic sort by contact name but the MP-nnn is sorted first then the names
which blows away the alphabet sort of all names in an account.

This will also make it easier to geographically group accounts by being able
to sort by the city or the ZIP code in larger communnities.

What I am looking for is a sort done on the main contact page with the
contacts up, then being able to resort the contacts to "zip" code. This is
valueable in Contact Management for geographic sales calls. One can put the
"zip" area in and find all the contacts in that area. I work with a large
contact data base (8,000files). This is a basic in programs such as "ACT" or
"EZTRACK".

Go to Business Contacts or Accounts folder.

In Outlook/BCM select menu View|Arrange By|Current View|By Location.

Contacts should now be grouped by zip.

You can also add a zip column by right-clicking on the column headers
and selecting Field Chooser. In the Field Chooser dialog select
"Address fields" in the pulldown at the top, and then drag Zip/Postal
Code to where you want the header to be.
