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
