One way out is chosing not to visualize the initials field on Blackberry.

Other way is downloading BB desktop software before doing the transfer, this should fix the problem.

    To remove the initials you need to go to Advanced Options of the Contacts Sync in the Desktop manager, there you find options on the Field Mappings

    Instructions are more or less the following , depending on the BB software version:


    Synchronize data in custom address book fields during synchronization
    Connect your BlackBerry device to your computer.
    Open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    Double-click Synchronize.
    On the Configuration tab, click Configure synch.
    Select the Address Book check box.
    Click Configure > Advanced Settings.
    Click Field Mapping.
    Map a field in the right column to a custom address book field in the left column.
    Click OK.

When creating a new email in Outlook 2007, if I click on the "To" button to pull up an address from my Contacts they are alphabetized by First Name. How can I get them listed by Last Name?


To setup up contacts by the person's last name. In Outlook, when you compose a new message, and then click the To or Ccbutton, the Contacts list may display names that are sorted by the contact's first name. Here's how you can change the list to display entries by the contact's last name.
Sort the Contacts list by the File As field
  1. Start Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click E-mail accounts.
  3. Click View or change existing directories or address books, and then click Next.
  4. Click Outlook Address Book, and then click Change.
  5. Under Outlook Address Books, click Contacts: Mailbox -YourMailboxName, and then under Show names by, click File As (Smith, John).
  6. Click Close, and then click Finish.
Verify that the newly created contacts are filed in last name, first name order
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Preferences tab, and then click Contact Options.
  3. In the Default "File As" order list, click Last, First.
  4. Click OK twice.
  5. To view the new Contacts list sort order, restart Outlook.
NOTE If you want to display a particular contact in a different order than the rest of the Contact list, you can modify the File As field in individual contact cards. For example, you may want to sort some contacts by the Company field.

I have a blackberry curve 8330 synched to outlook 2003 for address book. Blackberry is set to display last name first. Outlook contacts on laptop set same, but addresses display on blackberry wrong;...


As annoying as it may be, you might just have to choose the portion that is more important to you - Outlook or the Blackberry. I'm assuming it's the BB.

Since Outlook is different then Outlook Express, you would more than likely have to alter the business contact information in Outlook to make it transfer properly to the BB.

It is a database and not CSV format I'm assuming (comma separated value) format coming from Outlook, but in the process is reads it as a CSV file it seems.

Test it out by entering a dummy business contact and seeing what needs to be where to make it work on the BB.

Since it doesn't have an open source code, I doubt it can be tweaked aside from that.

Outlook 2007 Contact


Do you remember when you imported the output from your BB? One of the last steps after you have chosen the file to import shows a button for Map Custom Fields. Choose that button and then drag Full Name from the left side to FIRST NAME on the right side. When I did that, Outlook shows them in order of First name.

Because your previous import mapped FullName from BB to Last Name, that's the way it's showing. I tried within Outlook to change it around and it would not change it for me either.

Error 0x80040fb3


Hi,
Typically its caused by a contact not having a FIRST NAME, LAST NAME and COMPANY NAME. (don't confuse FIRST NAME and LAST NAME with FULL NAME, they're not the same!!)
Do an advanced search in Microsoft Outlook to find contacts with blank First Name, Last Name, and Company fields.

1. Open Contacts in Microsoft Outlook.
2. Open the Tools menu.
3. Select Advanced Find from the Find submenu.
4. Select the Advanced tab.
5. Click Field.
6. Select First Name from the Frequently-used fields submenu.
7. Select is empty from the Condition list.
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 for Last Name and Company.
9. Click Find Now.

Any contacts you find as a result of this need to be modified to include a first, last or company name (not all 3, just one of the 3)

By upgrading to DTM 4.2.2 or higher, that problem should be ignored (skipped), so if its still happening, I'd first go through the steps listed in that link above.
