Outlook 2003 dropdown address list

Q: Outlook 2003 dropdown address list

I just upgraded to 2003 from 2000. In Microsoft's ongoing effort to make things easier for people (!), they keep adding "conveniences." In 2003 when you type in an address--any address, even incorrect ones--Outlook remembers it and lists is among your choices the next time you type in the same beginning letters.

Does anyone know how to edit that list to clean out typos and extraneous email addresses? I actually liked the way 2000 worked for this better than 2003.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a number of standard letters which require a dropdown box to be populated with a list of over 25 names.

When thinking this through, I figured that it would be best (due to restrictions on the network so I'm unable to use an access database) to produce this list in Excel 2003. Along with corresponding lists of email and telephone numbers.

Unfortunately I'm finding it very difficult to get the information onto the dropdown.

So far the code I have is:
Private Sub UserForm_Click()

'Define Variables
Dim xlNames As Excel.Workbook
Dim rsNames As Recordset
Dim cmbNames As ComboBox
Dim i As Integer
Dim SocServs As Worksheet

'open the spreadsheet to access the information
Set xlNames = Excel.Workbooks.Open("C:\Documents and Settings\00772367\My Documents\SocServs.xls")
'set up and activate the appropriate worksheet
Set SocServs = xlNames.Application.Sheets("SocServs")

'retrieve the information from the named column in the spreadsheet
Set rsNames = SocServs.Columns(1, 1)
i = 0

With rsNames
' This code populates the combo box with the values
' in the Names column of that there spreadsheet (I fervently hope).

Do Until .EOF
cmbNames.AddItem (i)
cmbNames.Column(0, i) = .Fields("Names")
i = i + 1

End With
End Sub
There's a few errors in there, which I can't seem to surmount. The coding doesn't seem to recognise the fact that I've got a named range in t... Read more

A:Populate a dropdown box in Word 2003 from a list in Excel 2003

Is there any particular reason why you are needing to do this using VBA? You can populate a cell with your multiple choice options using Excel's built in Data Validation feature. Simply select the cell you want the options to appear in and click DATA --> VALIDATION and then select "ALLOW LIST" from the options. Then select the range of cells that contains your list of names.

Today, I converted my PST file from Outlook 2000 format to the Outlook 2003 format and it works fine but tonight when I went to send an email, the Contact list displayed but it would not enter any of the contacts into the "new" email that I wanted to send. An error message appeared and it says;

"Address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened. It may have been moved or deleted or you do not have permissions. For information on how to remove this folder from the outlook address book, see Microsoft Outlook Help."

I tried every word I can think of to search for a solution in the help section and nothing worked or even seemed helpful. I have also tried to import address lists from various sources but that does not work because the list is already there but not associated with the Contacts list present in my program.

Any ideas on how to get my address list to work?

I had gone to a couple of gaming sites researching on some games and out of nowhere, it had popped up adult sites all over the place. I did all my spyware software and cleared out all the adult crap, but all of a sudden, they are showing up on my address dropdown list! Even after running the software, I thought that would clear them off the list.

Is there anyway besides clearing out all of the history that I can get rid of the one or 2 individual adult web addresses? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

I have Windows XP Pro, sp3.

In Firefox 2 you could go to Tools>Options>Privacy and press the Clear Now button. That brought up a box with a bunch of check boxes in it that allowed you to select what is cleared. In that box with the check boxes in it there was also a button that says: Clear Private Data Now. When you pushed that button it cleared stuff, one thing of which was any of the URLs in the dropdown list of the address bar.

But now with Firefox 3 it doesn't clear what's in the address bar dropdown list. Can somebody please tell me how I can clear this?

Hello and thank you for taking the time to check this out.
I have checked various forums for an answer or modifiable answer to my questions, but I haven’t found anything that appears to suit my problems.

I am using MS Word 2010 (Windows8 64 bit) and VBA Controls from the ‘Legacy Form’ tool option, Dropdown Form Field.
The VBA code for PeriodicList is located in Module1, General, PeriodicList
The VBA code for Suburb is located in Module1, General, Suburb
I do not have Option Explicit at the beginning of the code module.

I am creating a form layout in a MS Word document (Macro enabled), for users to complete, print, sign then scan and email to us. I am not using the ‘Userform’ because it is too difficult to set out the way we want it to look.

I have tried various ways to re-gig things to try to get things to work …. But I am frustrated and unsuccessful after trying to source solutions from the net.

I am only relatively new to VBA and am slowly getting the gist of it … but it is a very slow process.

I have 2 questions:

Question 1:
Under PeriodicList()

When “Dropdown1” is clicked it shows the options available and when selected it will determine what is listed in “Dropdown2” – however, if the user goes back to clicking “Dropdown1” and makes a different selection, it doesn’t clear “Dropdown2” field, which can lead to confusion because the old content is still in the field.
How do I code it to clear “Dropdown2” if “Dropdown1” is clicked?

I am using Outlook 2003 and run Windows XP.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list.

I created an outlook.com e-mail account. I exported my address book from Windows live as a .csv file. I imported it from Outlook.com. Everything went OK and said successful. My problem is I can't find it. When I create an e-mail message and click on To, the only address there is mine. When I click on People from the drop down link, the address are there, but you can't do anything with them. Any thoughts?


A:Outlook.com address list

If you go to the People page on Outlook.com, and click on a contact, does it show the email address?

I also had problems getting a csv file to work from Outlook 2003 into Outlook.com.

What I found was that certain phone number fields didn't get imported into outlook.com, even though when I tried an export from outlook.com, those very same fields were there in its own export csv format. The records imported and their names were there, but useful information like phone numbers wasn't (with no error mentioning it).

I think what I did in the end was manually type a test contact into outlook.com, with email/ phone number etc. filled in, and work out how it exported from outlook.com, and moved the data around in my import csv into different columns to match.

Is there anyway to merge my outlook's memory to a contact list?

What I mean is like, I have entered in so many e-mails manually not knowing that in the future I would need them to be all in a contact list. But they are still stored some how, as in when I begin to type the first 2 letters or numbers of the e-mail address, Outlook automatically knows which one it is and inputs the rest of the address for me.

Is there anyway to get those moved into an address book / contact list of some sort?

If not, no worries.

Additionally, wether I get these imported to a contact list by some feature or if I have to manually input each e-mail address, is there a way I can send a mass e-mail to all of them at the same time, but without anyone knowing that I sent it to 100 other people? Is there a way to hide everyon else's e-mail addresses?

A:Outlook 2003 Distribution List Help

You might give this utility a try. See what type of file it creates, and then see if you can import that into your Contacts.


I'm not aware of a feature in Outlook that allows sending to all Contacts. Most people use Distribution Lists with Outlook. To send a message to people without knowing who else received it, enter the addresses into the BCC (blind carbon copy) field.

I have a filter set up on my Outlook e-mail which does the following:

- Check mail when it arrives
- Move messages to 'EXTERNAL MAIL' folder
- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST'.

Great, all my external e-mail is filtered from my inbox. This means that I can focus on my inbox and deal with important stuff before I sift through all the junk in my external mail folder.

But then I get external e-mail that I want to stay in my inbox (eg. From my wife!).

So I have added another exception 'Except if from '[email protected]' or '[email protected]' etc.

What I would really like to do is have exceptions that say:

- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST' or 'CONTACTS'.

That way as soon as I add someone to my contacts, their e-mail doesn't get filtered out. I can then see an e-mail and think 'Oh, I don't want that one filtered next time', add the sender to my contacts and job done.

However, it seems taht you can only have ONE 'except if sender is in specified address book' exception.

Does anyone know a way round this?

Despite having a Win 7 laptop, I still have an XP desktop and have for many years used OE as my e-mail client. However, I use Thunderbird on the laptop, and thought about switching to it on the desktop. But T-bird has one huge flaw for me. I use a LOT of group address lists. They are very easy to create in OE by just naming the group the SELECTING the addresses to put into the group by clicking the "Select Members" button and double-clicking the person from the address book. In T-bird, there's no such "Select Members" button; you're asked to manually enter the e-mail address -- a royal pain in the arse. So I've been looking at Outlook as an alternative, since it is available in all versions of Office.

I still use Office 2000 on the desktop, mainly because MS destroyed the ability to do easy mail-merges with Access in Office 2007/2010 (cannot use queries as written; have to replace all "*" with "%" -- which only works with mail-merge, but not when run as a query in Access). I imported my OE address book into Outlook's Contacts folder, thinking that was the same as an address book. But when I try to create an e-mail and click the To: button, it tells me, "The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted. . . See MS Outlook Help."

I tried to duplicate the problem on my pc, but it all goes through.

If user on PC #1 sends an email to PC #2, not using a distribution list, it will go through, even if he sends it to a bunch of people.

I don't know if this matters, but there are two internet email addresses on this distribution list - most of it is interoffice email via MS Mail.

Windows & Office have all their updates & patches.

I asked the guy who built the system to bring across all my mail data, which he did.
My old C drive is now just an internal data drive, with everything still on it and my new C is a large internal SATA, just for info.

Last night a friend sent an Email with a new Email address. I added it to my address book in Outlook (Contacts) and deleted the old entry. I asked to file him by last name first, but nothing I do keeps him from showing up as first name first when I open the address book.
He is properly sorted in the Contacts list.

I understand the *.PST file that stores my mail. Does it also store the Contacts list?

If I archive the *PST file of mail, does that also back up the address book?

Is there a separate file in the old Office 97 for the address book?

What's the Windows Address Book and how do I access it?

Why won't Outlook 2003 sort by last name for this new entry? All the old entries are OK.

I don't want to face this for all new entries....

Most likely you have Word set as your default Outlook email editor.

Click on the Numbered or Bulleted tab (whichever is the case). Click the None option, then OK. When you return to the email, the numbers or bullets will be gone, but your line may be indented. You should have the formatting toolbar visible. Click on the Decrease Indent button once or twice (depending whether it was a numbered or bulleted list) and the line will then be aligned at the left margin.

HI, I have a question re Outlook 2003's address book access while composing an email. I know Outlook uses a cache/buffer scheme to save Contacts entries once you have used them for the first time. Enter the first char or two and it offers suggestions. Problem is after a C drive format and XP reinstalll, my cache is gone. To send an email to someone already in my Contacts list, I have to: 1) leave my new email, 2) open Contacts, 3) search and find the person of interest, 4) place the email addr in paste buffer, 5) go back to the email and paste it in TO field. There has to be a better way since many lesser email programs do not require this painful route. I know I only have to do this once since it's now in the cache for future access. Is there a better way ???

Hi everyone,

My colleagues and I use Outlook 2003, and connect via Microsoft Exchange Server.

Recently, some staff members have noticed that when they send an email to a distribution list, the email also gets sent to other random contacts who are not even added to the list.

Although these random contacts are definately not on the distribution list, they are added to the To box when the distribution list is added!

It is not one particular list - it has happened to different staff members with different lists, and on different computers. We have tried deleting the lists and starting again from scratch, but the same thing occured.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is it likely to be a network/server issue rather than Outlook?

Hope someone can help!

For the past two weeks or so, my Outlook 2003 will only show a partial font list in the drop down, and it also won't change the font of the current text.

For example, if my default is verdana and I start typing but decide I want to change to tahoma, I'd normaly highlight the text and click on my font list and click on tahoma. But lately, my font list ends at the last 'R' font. I know I have a lot of fonts installed, but nothing that would cause issues, and it hasn't caused issues prior.

Is there any way to fix this? I am not using word as the editor.


A:Shortened Font List in Outlook 2003?


Have you recently installed quite a few extra fonts, as there is a maximum number of TrueType fonts that can be installed in Microsoft Windows. The exact number of TrueType fonts that can be installed varies, depending on the length of the TrueType font names and file names.

If specific fonts are missing, you might want to remove unused fonts from Microsoft Windows. To remove unused fonts from your computer, try this:

1. Quit all programs.
2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
3. Double-click Fonts.
4. To delete a font from your computer, click the font that you want to delete, and then click Delete on the File menu.

Try going into your address book via the icon on the standard toolbar and removing then readding the contacts folder. If that does not work we will look into readding the outlook address book and see if that fixes it, then we will look into scrubbing the folders.

In Outlook 2003 when forwarding, replying or a new email when I go to insert addresses using the To button I get an error message that "The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions..........." If I go to Contacts in Outlook 2003 all my contacts and addresses are there, even adding a new contact does not appear in the 'Select Names' drop down list. Hope you can help.http://images.techguy.org/icon/icon8.gif

In the CONTACTS section of Outlook 2007 there are various default settings that I don't like. But I don't find options to change them.
The main one is that the address box LOOKS as ONE field, but is in fact a collection of invisible fields: Street, City, State, Zip, Country. What you type in that big box is sometimes unclear to Outlook, then it pops up an edit box with all the separate fields. Sometimes there WAS already a (default) Country/Region in the box and then the result of a printed address could be: John Johnson, 1st Street 1, LA, CA 98765, USA, The Netherlands.
I would prefer to see the 'split' address view by default. How?
And if it is not possible, how can I force Outlook to show the split box when I need it?
The same address box has two options, business and home. Business is shown by default, so often I type private addresses in the wrong box - with confusing results when grouping, printing etc.
Can BOTH the Home AND the Business address box be displayed at the same time?
If not possible, then can I instruct Outlook to display the Home box by default?
Similar problem with the Email box. I always have to use the dropdownlist to see/edit/use a 2nd or 3rd email. In this time where many people have several email addresses, at least 2 of them should be visible by default in the standard view.

I know that I can customize my Outlook Contact page completely to my own needs. I gave it a few attempts, but the result was a bewildering mess. Lots worse than th... Read more

When creating a message (and specifically when addressing the message) I want to select addresses in last name sequence. The sequence of the address book entries are in first name sequence. Very cumbersome. I have many contacts (that are displayed as address book) and want to select in last name, first name order.

The "file as" entries are last name, first name, and the sequence of the Contacts "view" is last name, first name.

It's the process of selecting an entry when creating a message that's the problem. It continues to come up in first name sequence.

Can someone help?

A:address sequence in Outlook 2003

I use Outlook Express so I can't vouch for what happens in Outlook - but can't you sort the Address Book by last name? In OE a click sorts it Ascending by first name - another click Descending by last name - another click Ascending by last name - and a final click back to Descending first name.

So if I set the ADDRESS BOOK to last name first and then create a new message and pick someone - it is entered that way.

Hu Guys - and Happy New Year

I had to get a new computer - the old one crashed (I think I may have inadvertantly deleted a .dll file!). I was able to install the Old hard drive (which will not boot) in the new computer - so at least I have all my old files stored and have been able to transfer many to the new hard drive.

The new unit came with WinXP - and I installed MS Office 2003.
I used to use Outlook Express (in Win98) and liked the fact that I could organize my list of e-mail addresses into folders. I am now using OUTLOOK as my e-mail client and can't figure out how to organize the address book. I tried importing the old address book from Express with no luck. CAN I ORGANIZE MY E-MAIL ADDRESSES IN THE OUTLOOK ADDRESS BOOK?

I have installed outlook 2003 on a new computer that is using windows 7. I copied the PST file from my old computer but I cannot see my address list. If I create an address book I still cannot see my old address list. I can see my contacts list but if I go to properties and try to tick "show this folder as an email address book" I cannot because the box is greyed out.
Even if I delete the existing mail file this is still greyed out. I had several other problems getting outlook to work, caused by remenants of the free copy of office 2007. I solved these by looking for threads on the web, but I cannot find an answer for this specific problem
