Easily remove United States of America from Outlook Contacts

Hello world, another find…. Yesterday I had a client, ask me how to remove United States of America from his outlook contacts.  It appears the iPhone or blackberry had added United States of America when he entered a new contact on the phone.

Here’s a solution I found on another web site:

While in Outlook’s contact list, change the view to “By Location”
(View->Current View->By Location). Now select one or more of the contacts
with USA in the “Country/Region” field and drag them to a contact with a
blank “Country/Region” field. The “Country/Region” will be changed to blank,
but the rest of the information will not be altered.

You have to use the “By Location” view – sorting them by the country field
in a different view won’t work the same way!

Works like a champ at removing this field from all the contacts, cleared around 1000 in less than 30 seconds….

Good Luck, Tom
