ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook 97 and 98, how can I make my Personal Address Book listing appear above the Global Address List in the Address Book?
Note: The software discussed here is no longer in common use at IU, and UITS may no longer be able to verify this text's accuracy; additionally, the UITS Support Center may no longer have the materials needed to adequately support this software.
Note: UITS may no longer be able to verify the accuracy of information regarding Windows versions of Outlook older than 2000, and may not have the materials necessary to support them. Therefore, UITS recommends that you upgrade to a current version. At Indiana University, you can download a current version of Microsoft Office for Windows, which includes the current version of Outlook for Windows, from IUware. If you are in a department or using a Macintosh Outlook client, contact your local support provider (LSP) or the UITS Support Center before upgrading or changing your software.
In Microsoft Outlook 97 and 98, the order in which you install services controls the order in which they appear. To make the Personal Address Book appear first, you must install it before installing the Exchange Server service. If both are already installed, remove the Exchange Server service and reinstall it. If only the Exchange Server service is installed, remove it. Next install the Personal Address Book service, and reinstall the Exchange Server service. More detailed instructions are as follows:
- From the
Settings, and then
