Well, myself I use a personal "patent". First I export my contacts to an Excel file(named regular Outlook contacts). I re-export contacts in a second Excel file (named Nokia sync contacts). In this second file, I completely change the order (Last name, First name). This is done by transffering all the columns under the opposite heading (do not just change the headings). Then I completely delete my Outlook contacts, import new "changed" contacts from the "Nokia" Excel sheet where I previously have made the changes, and synchronize the phone with Outlook. It only takes the same procedure but with the original Excel sheet, to restore Outlook back to how it used to be. In this way I keep my sync up-to-date with the last Outlook contacts. But in this case I always empty the phone's contacts before sync, and I must re-make all groups, and phone order (for example mobile first) since after sync the phone order is different. If I do not empty phone from its contacts, then I get all phone contacts as well as Outlook contacts together, in the phone (that is my problem).
6310 pc suite 4 contacts sync with ms outlook
I have the same problem...all you can do is put the first name after the last name in the "last name" box in outlook.
I too am astounded that company like nokia can offer no better solution...if anyone has a better solution please let me know
VBscript for contacts cen help
I had the same problem as you with sync with ms outlook and Nokia PC suite so a I made a small VBscript for switching Lastname and Name in all contacts. You can just run this macro before syncing and after syncing to get to normal order. I think its very simple and reliable.
Set nms = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set fld = nms.Folders("Osobní složky").Folders("Kontakty")
Set itms = fld.Items
ItemCount = itms.Count
If ItemCount = 0 Then
MsgBox "No contacts to export"
MsgBox ItemCount & " contacts to transform"
For i = 1 To ItemCount
Set itm = itms(i)
jmeno = itm.FirstName
itm.FirstName = itm.LastName
itm.LastName = jmeno
