It can be occasionally useful to filter a list. Here are three reasons why you want to try this. For merging specific contacts in the Microsoft Word, for printing specific contacts on the paper, and for viewing specific contacts to speed up data entry. To filter what you see, right- click on the column headers and choose Customize Current View. Now, choose Filter. Here, you can build a list of requirements that the contacts must satisfy to be displayed in your list.
For example, I would only like to seek vendors in my contacts. I make the change and press OK. When I return to my contacts, only those that match the filter I have requested appear. Note that at the top of the screen near the Search window, it says that currently a filter is applied. Don't forget to reset the Filter layer. To do this, you right-click on the column headings, choose Customize Current View, Filter, then Clear All.
And there you have it, five ways altogether to customize the display of your contacts. Next is a very useful trick, tying Microsoft Word in their Outlook to do a mail merge. Ready for form letters and labels? Let's check them out.
