When you enter a telephone number in the Phone Number field of a Contact in Microsoft Outlook 97, you may see +1 automatically added before the area code of the phone number.
The +1 is the country code for the United States.
You can set Outlook so that it automatically enters a +1 in the Phone Number field as you enter new local and long-distance telephone numbers. The following method affects all telephone numbers, including fax numbers.
Use the following steps to disable the addition of the country code in new telephone numbers:
- Start Outlook.
- On the Tools menu, click Options.
- On the General tab, click Dialing Options.
- Click to clear the check box to "Automatically add country code to local phone numbers."
- Click OK, and then OK again to close all dialog boxes.
When you add a new telephone number to a Contact, Outlook will not add the +1 prefix.
