Default Syncing Address Book - Naming Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I recently purchased a Blackberry 7250 and sync it with Outlook on my desktop. However, when it transfers the names over the full first name, middle name, and last name sync to the blackberry. I don't want the middle names in there as it tends to cause mor confusion on the screen then needed on the pocket device. Is there a way to not sync the middle name, but not change anything in Outlook? Tried taking off that sync option,, but it wouldn't let me. Thanks in advance.

Default Field Mapping

If you're using intellisync you can select "Configure PIM", select the address book and click on "Configure" and "advanced settings". Select "Field Mapping" on the next screen and then you can double click "Middle Name" to remove it from the sync process.

When I do that it says "FIELD MUST BE MAPPED." So is there any other way to not have the Middle name synced? TIA

If you disable it, chances are that it will remove the middle name from the Outlook address book entries on the next sync.
