Default Change layout of address inserted from Outlook 2007 to Word 2007?

How can I change the layout of addresses inserted from Contacts in Outlook
2007 into Word 2007? Presently, it skips the "Company" field, which I want,
and adds the "Country" field, which I don't want. (In Word 2000, you could
manipulate this with autotext and "addresslayout," but that's apparently not
available in Word 2007.) Also, in earlier versions of Word, the insert
address toolbar button had a dropdown arrow associated with it, with the last
few addresses you used. Has this been eliminated in Word 2007? Now it appears
that all you get is the button. Thanks!

Hi ?B?Um9uIFBlcnJ5?=,

How can I change the layout of addresses inserted from Contacts in Outlook
2007 into Word 2007? Presently, it skips the "Company" field, which I want,
and adds the "Country" field, which I don't want. (In Word 2000, you could
manipulate this with autotext and "addresslayout," but that's apparently not
available in Word 2007.)

It still works in Word 2007, at least in the final release version (I don't know
about any beta versions). I just tested, using the information in these two
Knowledge Base articles

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/211424/en-us
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/212345/EN-US/

I saved it as an AutoText entry (not as the default QuickPart) to the
Normal.dotm template (not to Building Blocks.dotx).

Also, in earlier versions of Word, the insert
address toolbar button had a dropdown arrow associated with it, with the last
few addresses you used. Has this been eliminated in Word 2007? Now it appears
that all you get is the button.

This, however, I can't find. Just the "Address Book" button.

Hi Cindy,

That's interesting.

The Address book icon in the Word 2007
Mailings=Create=Envelopes/Labels dialogs
still includes the MRU dropdown for recent addresses,
but the 'Address Book' command added to the QAT does not and an imported toolbar from Word 2003 with the address book icon loses
that icon in Word 2007.

Perhaps something to do with Word no longer being the email editor for Outlook?

I even lose the icon off the toolbar...

No idea how these things are/were connected to an AddressBook. Since the functionality supposedly works with standard MAPI (not
just Outlook), I can't see how it would be strictly related to Word having been Outlook's email editor. And I certainly never used
Word as the email editor in earlier versions...

I'd guess it may have more to do with how the MAPI information is provided to Office. But it would be just a wild guess.
