The default view for contacts is the Address Card view. Both the Address Card view and the Detailed Address Card view are easy formats to work with, especially if you have many blank fields within each contact entry. These two views don't display blank fields unless you specify otherwise and modify the views. Both views are shown in Figure 16.4, with detailed address cards on top and plain address cards on the bottom. If you display the Advanced toolbar (right-click any toolbar and choose Advanced), you can readily switch between different views.
Figure 16.4. Address Card and Detailed Address Card views hide the blanks so you see only data.
Switching Among Views
In addition to the two predefined Address Card views, you can also switch between different table views. In the Contacts folder, there are seven predefined views. To choose a different view, click the drop-down arrow next to the current view on the Advanced toolbar, and then select one of the views in the drop-down list. The list offers different views that have already been defined by the creators of Outlook.
