Managing and parsing names other than main contact

Hi all:

The name of the contact in Outlook is nicely managed with that popup

dialogue box, and it takes care of managing first/middle/last names. But I

have a number of other persons that I am coping with in my custom form. What

is the best practice for managing these names? Do I need new custom fields

for "Title", "FirstName", "MiddleName" and "LastName" for each of these

people, to provide all the flexibility I need for mail merges? Or is there a

better way?

Thanks!

Fred

If your primary requirement is to be able to use each name part separately

in a mail merge then, yes, you'd need a separate custom property for each

part.
