Outlook 2003; Loading Contacts from Lotus Notes Export


B

Bill45

I desire to move all the contacts that I have on Lotus Notes to Outlook 2003.
I have exported them from Notes to a .vcf file. When I import them into
Outlook Contacts, it seems to only process the 1st one on the file and none
behind the 1st.
If i do that into Windows Address Book, they all come in but they don't show
in Contacts. Is there a solution to my intended objective?

Not "seems to", "does". Outlook's handling of vcfs extends only to the first
contact in the file. There are third-party tools available that can import a
multi-contact vcf file into Outlook.

Since you can add them to the Windows Address Book, you should be able to then
import them from there into Outlook. FIle>Import and Export>Import INternet
Mail and Addresses. Choose "Outlook Express", uncheck everything other than
"Import Address Book", click Next, select your dumplicate handling, then click
Finish.

You mention OE; I'm on regular Outlook 2003; do your import.export
instrtuctions still apply? I'm aware that OE uses the Address Book but
Outlook doesn't whcih is why I'm clarifying. Thanks!

Outlook Express uses the Windows Address Book to hold its contacts. If you
want to import from the Windows Address Book into Outlook's Contacts, you must
choose the option to import from Outlook Express (because that's really
importing from the Windows Address Book). Did you try the steps I described?
