Hi,
I'm having difficulties with MS Outlook 2000 address book.

I wish to add sub folders to the 'Contacts list'.
MS help says to go to file and click 'add folder'. If only it were that simple.

There is no option to add folder. It isn't even greyed out!

I don't want to create contact lists, I just want to have separate sub folders for different address list!

Any ideas???

Cheers

Disorder,
In Outlook 2000, click VIEW and ensure the FOLDER LIST is selected
Then from within FOLDER LIST RightClick on CONTACTS and select NEW FOLDER... give the folder a name and make sure that 'Folder Contains' has 'Contact Items' selected, the 'Where to place the folder' should have 'contacts' highlighted, press OK and a your new subfolder will be created under contacts.

HTH
Babe.

Thanks for that.

Is there any way to do the same in the address book?

Disorder,
In AddressBook you can create Groups, then either add new conatcts or copy/move old contacts into the groups.

In AddressBook FILE | NEW GROUP ...

Thanks,

I'll just use the contact lists and leave address book alone.
It won't allow the same flexibility as the rest of the programme.
