Outlook 2003 help needed

Ok, at work we use Outlook and when you open a new contact, it opens a new contact in your personal contacts. However, in order to ensure we can all use the same contacts we want to use the public folder.

Problem is this. The only way to enter a new contact into the public folder is to choose the folder and go through the branches until you find it. Is there a quicker route via any of the following (many at my works are too computer illiterate and will just click on "New" and then "Contact" :

1) Can someone tell me some suitable macro code to assign to a new button which would effectively open up the public folder and then choose a new contact? It's such a shame that Outlook doesn't have a record macro feature :tazz:

2) Is there a way to get the public folder to be a default folder?

3) Lastly, a more complex solution invoving the public folder overwriting our personal folders every day (but this doesn't really fix the problem)

Any help would be much appreciated!!! :)
