I have had this problem with Outlook 2003, and was hoping that it would be solved in Outlook 2007, but it has the same problem. When I put in a new contact, or edit an old one, the Location Information pop-up box comes on, the the country field is blank, with no ability to choose a drop down or enter a country manually. It will not let me cancel entering, even though it gives me the option. The pop-up box keeps coming up, either stating I have to enter a country, or warning me that if I cancel, telephony types of features may not work. If I hit yes to cancel, the box just keeps coming up. If I hit no, the blank country issue rears it's head again. I can find an answer no where else. Oh help me, Obi Wan.....

Welcome to the forum.

Usually when that pops up it wants an area code. Try typing in your area code. If you are overseas and using an American version then type in any 3 numbers and see if that works.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have tried that many times. I can enter the area code, but when I try and save/close, it gives me the dreaded problem first listed in my request for help. It seems to want area code AND country.

I believe it is probably a registry problem of some kind, but do not know quite where to try editing. Anyone, any more suggestions?
