Not sure if this is what you are looking for but click on Tools > Preferences > General tab > Salutation Preference button at the bottom.

 

This gives you the ability to determine how the Salutaiton field automatically updates based on the contact name entry.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Scott, but that is the default setup that needs to change. It does not allow me to choose one salutation setup for a particular type of contact; lets say a physician (prefix with Dr.) as an example, providing a "Dr. Jones" result, and then a different setup for us common folks (prefix with Mr.) as an example, providing a salutation of (first name only) "Scott" as the result. The current Salutations Preferences choice you allude to, only permit me to choose one setup or the other, not both. I need to be able to do both. Without that ability, when importing large databases, I have to go through the database and manually update those physician salutations one at a time which isn't efficient at all.

Thanks,

Karl
