Print Outlook's Contacts As A Paper Phone Directory

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Call me old-fashioned, but when it comes to things like address and phone directories, I prefer a paper book. Is there some way to print a little booklet of my Outlook contacts with phone numbers and addresses?

Since I didn’t immediately know the answer to that question but realized it would be useful to many readers, I did a little experimenting in Outlook. To my surprise (and delight), when I clicked on File , Print , I discovered Outlook can take its contact data and format it for printing as a Card , Small Booklet , Medium Booklet , Memo or Phone Directory (see screenshot below).

Then, when I clicked on Page Setup , it revealed a wide assortment of booklet style choices for each basic format (see screenshot below).

I selected several of the options and then evoked a Print Preview of the page to see what they looked like. Here’s a scaled-down screenshot of one style of directory layout:

It couldn’t be easier.
