Create and use your own Electronic Business Card

Business Phone field selected in Edit Business Card dialog box; phone number selected in Edit box


One more thing you should know about working in the Edit Business Card dialog box is that it's possible to edit the value (contents) of a field. You can do this by typing in the box under Edit. If you do this, you'll modify the value of the field as it appears in the business card, and you'll also modify it for the associated contact.

Proceed with caution     This type of editing can be helpful if you need to make a small change to your contact information. For example, suppose you're working in the Edit Business Card dialog box and you realize that you mistyped your phone number when you initially created the contact. By editing the value under Edit, you can make the correction right away, without having to go back to the contact form. However, if you delete the value, it will be gone for good. Which means it will be gone from the Electronic Business Card and it will be gone from the contact. If you simply want to keep the field from being displayed on the card, use the Remove button as we discussed earlier in this lesson.
