Outlook Contact appears to be corrupted

Post by jmt356 »

Something bizarre is happening with my Outlook Contact.

When I try open it, Outlook states:

There is not enough memory to complete the operation.

When I click okay, Outlook states:

The document may be corrupt. To preserve the contents:
Choose select all and then choose Copy.
Create a new document, then choose paste.

When I click okay, the contact opens and the Notes filed displays blank. I can only get the contents to appear if I select Show / Hide ¶ from the Format Text tab. When I click Show / Hide ¶, the content shows up, but the text direction is from down to up, rather than left to right, even though the contents are in English, and even though I have left to right text direction selected.

What is going on?
Regards,

JMT

Does this happen for one specific contact, or for all contacts?

It happened for only a few (3-4) contacts. The ones impacted had extensive Notes.

I can't find anything about this. Perhaps the Inbox Repair Tool will help.
