I am unable to change the name that is displayed on the screen of our office phones. they are NEC electra elite phones. (that is what the guide calls them) I have the character entry codes, but no where in the booklets does it say anything about what to press to change the name displayed on the screen. (the question about changing the time and date of the last phone had the answer that my book had so it was the same phone I assume.) Thank you so much for any help you can give me!
On an NEC Elite you must enter system programming to change the name of the extensions. Unless you have a PC connection to the system this is somewhat complicated. If you would like me to step you through the system programming, please contact me @ 850-326-0394.

This is a technical problem beyond the basic programming functions of the phone such as you would find in a user's manual. It requires support from a phone technician. For example: https://sundance-communications.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/246760/dterm-80-caller-id-programming I don't think online advice will be of assistance. There is barely the possibility that Startech.com could be of service. Otherwise, your technician supporting your phone service will have to assist.
Assuming you are not an NEC trained Tech and your system is on a IPKII, You will best served by acquiring the IPKII Instalation manual and the Feature and services Manual.
This is not the kind of simple change that the average end user should attempt although I would agree that it is a feature that should have been made availiable to the average user because of occasional movement in
any office environment.
