    Prevent Outlook from reformatting contact telephone numbers


    Currently, Outlook (Office 2019) reformats contact telephone numbers that I enter as

    xxx xxx xxxx
    to
    (xxx) xxx-xxxx

    In an earlier version of Outlook, I was able to prevent the reformatting, and numbers entered previously retain their un-reformatted form. However I can't find any way of preventing newly-entered phone numbers from being reformatted. Is there a way?

    :)

    GUIDE:How to transfer contacts from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail

    I'm sitting here in the office, its the end of the year in the school system, and several employees transferring to alternative counties. With this it brings loads of transferring contacts to take with them from their company phone. Well, this one in particular sparked a guide idea. So here it is, How to transfer Outlook contacts to your Gmail account.


    Step 1: Sign in to your outlook account.
    step 2 In the top left hand corner click File > Import/Export > Export to file > Browse to desired place to save your file > export. Be sure you export the file as .csv (comma separated values)
    Step 3 Log into your Gmail account
    Step 4 Select 'Contacts' In the subsection you will see a 'Import' button on the right-hand side. Click it.
    Step 5 Browse to the location where you saved it > Open it > Click Import.



    I would have provided pictures, but I use neither Outlook or Gmail. Hope someone somewhere gets some use from this. *Toast :toast:
