empty fields causing sync problem
I'm having problems syncing problems with my outlook address book.

I think the problem is empty first name/last name/company fields.

Here's my problem: I have about 12 entries, most were added in outlook in the full name field that it offers up by default. I've never really used the first and last name fields (I know that's a problem now!). Consequently I have more than a 1000 empty fields that need filling with something (I guess even a space would do it).

These are required fields for DTM to sync with so I can't exclude them.

Can anyone think of a way to populate those fields in bulk with something that'll allow a sync?

I refuse to change each one individually by hand - I'd rather go back to windows mobile and you'll know how much that would hurt....

yours, desperately,

Come to think of it, why is this not a problem at home on my laptop with vista/outlook 2007 yet is a problem at work on XP/outlook 2003
