Getting Outlook full name correct with AddressLayout

Hi Outlook experts,

I have been struggling to get the names of contacts to display correctly when using the Insert Address button in Word to fetch the contact info from Outlook. I have been able to set up the AddressLayout to get the company name, city, etc. just fine.

The problem I am having is getting the suffix(es), etc. to display how we like them (with commas). I would like the names to be like this:

Billy D. Williams, P.E., Ph.D., President

The only thing that I have come up with is having the last name as "Williams," and the title as ", President" and the P.E., Ph.D. as the suffixes. This does not seem like a good solution.

FYI I need this to work for 2010 and 2013.

If the layout is setup correct, putting president in the Title field is really the best option. In my experience, the suffix field strips commas.

The good news is that when you get it working in one outlook, it should work in the other one. :)
