Microsoft Office Questions? Ask a IT Expert for Support ASAP
Hi, I can help answer your question.
Outlook copies only the name and not the email for known Contacts.
To get the Name & and email address, you can perform this workaround.
1. Right-click on the Name in question and select Add to Contacts
2. Copy the desired Name and email address and paste where needed.
3. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.
If you want to retain the email format then you can right-click on the e-mail message and choose Message Options.Then scroll through the Internet Headers near the bottom, to get the email format:FIRST LAST <[email protected]
I believe I am on a unlimited question and answer plan.
No problem. I'm here to help.
Also, I want to copy the name (in proper order) and mailing address (not e-mail address).
Also, when I right click on a name in "contacts" I am not given the choice of "add to contacts"; you should know I am working in the "business card" format.
Let me check, one moment please.
To accomplish this, you'll need to open each contact and copy the name, paste it into Word Perfect, then copy the address and paste it into Word Perfect.
Then it's probably easier to do what I have been doing which is to copy the entire contact, paste it into WordPerfect and the delete the phone numbers, etc, I don't want and reverse the order of the names. Oy. Not very elegant.
Just found this:
There is a mail merge option, but it works with Microsoft Word and not Word Perfect. It's cumbersome to use with Word Perfect.
You can also export all your contacts into a .CSV file and then delete the columns you don't want. Then paste the Name / Address into WordPerfect.
The problem is that my contact information keeps changing and it's hard enough keeping my Outlook contacts current. Are you sure that WordPerfect doesn't have a feature like the one in Word?
Word Perfect requires that you export your contacts to a .CSV file first.
Oh well, it was worth a shot. Thanks for your help.
