    When I open my contact list there are 2 labeled " contatcs". How can I merge to have one list?

    Thanks

    Hi Pbman

    Since you did not provide the version of Outlook you are using, the following steps are based on Outlook 2003.
    If you are using a different version of Outlook, please let us know.

    Open one of the Contacts FOLDERS, select one of the Contacts,
    Edit > Select All
    Right click on one of the highlighted Contacts and click: Move to Folder
    Select the other Contacts folder.
    All the Contacts should then be in one Contacts folder.

    Remove the empty Contacts folder from the Address Book:
    Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing directories or address books
    Next

    Select: Outlook Address Book
    Click: Change
    Select/Highlight the Contacts folder you want to remove.
    Click: Remove Address Book
    Close > Finish

    Close and restart Outlook for the changes to take effect.


    Let us know if that works for you or not.

    Did you try those steps? It should work the same way in Outlook 2007.
    You can also use:
    Edit > Select All
    Edit > Move to Folder
    or
    Edit > Select All
    Edit > Copy to Folder
