    Question regarding contact links

    Thanks for all the help! I would still consider the issue origination unresolved, but the issue is fixable manually or by script tweaking as offered previously. Thanks again to all who chimed in and especially you Diane for sticking with me.

    Question regarding contact links

    So if I ignore a reminder on my client that is for my wife's appointment from her calendar, the reminder would disappear on her from her main client side? In other words, I just have to live wither reminders cluttering up my reminder window? Seems silly that this cannot be remedied on a...

    Question regarding contact links

    I finished correcting each instance manually earlier and my wife's account was added again successfully without the issue resurfacing. The contact record itself was merged so at the top of the contact the name would appear as FULL NAME COMPANY NAME for each record that had a company name. This...

    Question regarding contact links

    Ha! I am slowly piecing this back to behaving as expected. Very nervous about it happening again. If it occurs, it appears like you wouldn't know until it has already happened, and on exchange, your contacts will be overwritten on the server and that's that for all that have a Company Name...

    Question regarding contact links

    Just seeing the script recommendation, thanks. Thank goodness this didn't change all the calendar items and such that are related to these contacts. Birthdays, anniversaries... Although my attempt at correcting the issue is creating duplicate events. Looks like I will have some calendar...

    Question regarding contact links

    Question regarding contact links

    To make suggested script even easier, you can take out the first save step. It works by just cutting and pasting existing company name and then saving once. Behavior returns to normal. so weird. My biggest fear would be manually fixing this and then re-adding my wifes account and it gets...

    Question regarding contact links

    Perhaps there is a script of some sort someone could assist me with that would open up each contact, select the Company Name, cut, Save, paste Company Name, Save and Exit, next contact... - - - Updated - - - And why, how could this happen. Am I correct in understanding that some corruption...

    Question regarding contact links

    Diane and all, Finally worked up the time and frustration level to begin playing with this in search of a fix using the suggestions made here. Tried the copied profile first and deleted my wife's account. No change. Then out of frustration, started from scratch again. Blew out the...

    Question regarding contact links

    I can reproduce the issue at will with contacts that existed on my exchange server prior to the account being added. For contacts that I have added to my account since, the issue does not exist and the behavior of links is normal (full name only). I have done ZERO experimenting on my...

    Question regarding contact links

    It is very peculiar... and very frustrating. I hate the trial and error experimentation when it involves removing and re-adding accounts over and over to try and isolate something like this.

    Question regarding contact links

    Should just deleting and re-adding the one exchange account (mine) do the trick if it had become corrupted somehow in the way you are theorizing when I added it a couple of weeks ago?

    Question regarding contact links

    There are definitely no spaces at the end of the full name or company fields, just checked a handful. All contacts that previously existed prior to the re-adding of the account a couple of weeks ago are equally affected without exception. Any new contacts I added since or if I were to add...

    Question regarding contact links

    If this is in fact the culprit, how can I correct the problem or at least try to. Delete and re-add my exchange account? Would I need to blow out the entire profile and start completely from scratch again, re-adding bot accounts?

    Question regarding contact links

    Follow Up please? Larry was mentioning about the potential for corruption when the account was added, somehow merging Full Name and Company Name fields? Please see my response questions back towards the bottom of page 1 and please follow up with me. Thanks!
