Windows 7: Copy non-business contact info to new non-business contact?

Copy non-business contact info to new non-business contact?

Hello. For all you Outlook gurus out there: is there a way to copy information from a non-business contact to a new contact?

For example, I create an personal individual (i.e. - non-business) contact with home address, home phone, etc. I save that contact. A week later I want to add a contact for that individual's spouse where everything is the same - home address, home phone - except for the spouse's cell phone number.

For business contacts I would use the "Save as Same Company" feature, but this does not work for non-business folks because they do not have the Business address populated (or should I say, it didn't work for me).

Any ideas that would make this a simple task?

Thanks

Jim

If I have understood correctly, I think this should help...

Create a contact from another contact

You can create a new contact (contact: Person, inside or outside of your organization, about whom you can save several types of information, such as street and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and Web page URLs.) from an existing contact by using the existing contact as a template, and then changing any of the information, as necessary.
  1. In Contacts, in Business Cards view, click the contact that you want to use as a template.
Note You can also complete this procedure in the Address Cards and Detailed Address Cards views.
  1. Press CTRL+C, and then press CTRL+V.
  2. In the Duplicate Contact Detected box, select the Add new contact option.
When you save a contact or an Electronic Business Card (Electronic Business Card: A view of specific information about a contact, in a format similar to a paper-based business card, that can be inserted into messages.) with the same name or e-mail name as one that already exists in your Contacts folder, Microsoft Outlook displays a dialog box with options to either add the duplicate contact as a new contact or update the existing contact with the new information from the duplicate contact. To find out more, see Resolve or delete duplicate contacts.
  1. Click Add.
The new contact will appear in Business Cards view next to the contact you copied.
  1. Double-click the new contact to open it, and then edit the information, as needed.
  2. Click Save and Close.

I hope this helps.
