Fit people into the right peg hole
Go to View>Arrange by>Current View and select by Category.
(View>Customize Curent View)
You can create a new Category and then just select Contacts and drag them into the right slot.
This technique works with any Outlook item for many Outlook fields, including Private and Company but won't work on fields that aren't editable. You can use it to add Categories but not remove them.Slipstick.com:

When you use the Outlook as a source for addresses, you can customize the display to suit your own needs.
When you use the Insert Address button in the Envelopes and Labels dialog box it does not use the same format as the Insert Address button.
Here's the location to put the Address book on the Quick Access Toolbar in 2007:

Insert Address Button Does Not Use AddressLayout AutoText Entry

Outlook Contacts in Access
Automatically set up links to data outside of Access.
It still works in Access/Outlook '07.
The changes made in Access will be reflected in Outlook and vice versa.
If you want to create a new database that will link to other data that isn't in an Access format, you can do it quickly.
The classic way is to use the File>Get External Data >Link Tables method.
However you can simply choose File >Open from the menu bar.
Select the appropriate data format from the Files Of Type dropdown list
(such as Microsoft Excel (*.xls)).
Open the file and Access will automatically create an MDB file with the same name as the data source you selected and will set up links to the data.
From there you can develop forms, queries and reports.

Display a map to an Outlook contact's address
If a contact item has an address in the United States, you can use your Internet connection and Outlook to create a map to the address. You must be connected to the Internet for this feature to work.
Open the contact item.
Next to the Address text box, click on the down arrow and select the address you want to map (Business, Home, or Other).
Then choose Actions/Display Map Of Address from the menu bar or click the Display Map Of Address button.
Your default browser opens and the map is created using Microsoft Expedia Maps.
