    RE: 6310 pc suite 4 contacts sync with ms outlook

    Well, myself I use a personal "patent". First I export my contacts to an Excel file(named regular Outlook contacts). I re-export contacts in a second Excel file (named Nokia sync contacts). In this second file, I completely change the order (Last name, First name). This is done by transffering all the columns under the opposite heading (do not just change the headings). Then I completely delete my Outlook contacts, import new "changed" contacts from the "Nokia" Excel sheet where I previously have made the changes, and synchronize the phone with Outlook. It only takes the same procedure but with the original Excel sheet, to restore Outlook back to how it used to be. In this way I keep my sync up-to-date with the last Outlook contacts. But in this case I always empty the phone's contacts before sync, and I must re-make all groups, and phone order (for example mobile first) since after sync the phone order is different. If I do not empty phone from its contacts, then I get all phone contacts as well as Outlook contacts together, in the phone (that is my problem).

    RE: 6310 pc suite 4 contacts sync with ms outlook

    There are several notes with this same question,
    but no answers.

    It is indeed very anoying that the well ordered outlook contacts list (lastname, firstname) is inversed on the phone.

    Any Nokia guys who can comment on this?

    I tried to inverse the 'full name' field in outlook,
    but still the Nokia 6310 uses firstname lastname order.

    Any help very much appreciated

    Hi Michael
    I have the same problem...all you can do is put the first name after the last name in the "last name" box in outlook.
    I too am astounded that company like nokia can offer no better solution...if anyone has a better solution please let me know

    VBscript for contacts cen help

    I had the same problem as you with sync with ms outlook and Nokia PC suite so a I made a small VBscript for switching Lastname and Name in all contacts. You can just run this macro before syncing and after syncing to get to normal order. I think its very simple and reliable.

    Sub Nokia()
    Dim jmeno
    Set nms = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set fld = nms.Folders("Osobní složky").Folders("Kontakty")
    Set itms = fld.Items
    ItemCount = itms.Count
    If ItemCount = 0 Then
    MsgBox "No contacts to export"
    Exit Sub
    Else
    MsgBox ItemCount & " contacts to transform"
    End If

    For i = 1 To ItemCount
    Set itm = itms(i)
    jmeno = itm.FirstName
    itm.FirstName = itm.LastName
    itm.LastName = jmeno
    itm.Save
    Next

    MsgBox "All contacts were transformed!"

    End Sub
