Preferred Solution: import multiple contacts into outook 2007 from csv

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: import multiple contacts into outook 2007 from csv

Read this. Although for Excel it should work for any csv file. Map custom fields is fairly important.
It would have been easier to have created a pst file of your old contacts (export as pst) and then imported that.

I accidentally deleted my Windows Live Mail contact list while coping and transferring it to another PC. That works fine.

I keep my contact list backed up in .VCF format and have Imported from my backup before.

But now, when I try to Import the (entire) contact list at once, (as I've done before), it imports VERY slowly, and after each contact slowly comes into the list,

I get a message " you already have this contact, do you want to over-write it?" (There are ZERO contacts there now??)

It would take days to import my contact list at this pace.

I have Win7 Pro, 64 bit.

Any ideas as to what is causing this?

Thanks in advance........................

Your Live Mail contacts list along with emails are stored on Microsoft Servers.

When you install Live Mail onto a fresh OS installation and set up the Live email account(s), all is downloaded and populates the the new Live mail installation.

I created a database in Access 2007. I am a relative newbe at this. One of the functions that I am using is a macro that Microsoft supplied as part of a Contacts table/form template to add Contacts from Outlook to the Contacts table in the the database. It was working just fine until I split the database, putting the tables on a server and the front end on my local PC. After splitting, it will no longer work. I have spent hours searching the Web and found 100's for people asking the same question, but no solution. Front and back end files are all in Trusted locations. Went back to a copy of the pre-split database (which still worked) and copy the object to the new split database. Would not work in the new database. . Saw some talk about using a temp Contacts table, but it did not give enough detail for me to follow.

Anyone have any ideas

I am so confused about where outlook 2013 keeps things.

I have installed Outlook 2013 and would like to import my contacts from my outlook 2007 in another computer. I have already prepared the contacts.pst file from outlook 2007 and made it available in my public folders. I then imported the .pst file into Outlook 2013 via network. However the contacts shows up as a separate contact list rather than integrated into the outlook 2013 address book . How to correct it?

I must have got the process wrong.

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with an Outlook 2007 issue a user has been having. Last week, our exchange server was flooded by a lot of e-mails, causing our users messages they tried to send out to fail and given a Outlook delivery delayed message for each. The issue was solved but I have one user who still has a delivery delayed mail in this inbox and upon trying to open it, Outlook crashes and if you try to deleted it, you get the message:

"One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items, and they try this operation again."

I was thinking this notification was in sync with the e-mail that was delayed, so I did a search and couldn't not find anything related to it. Any ideas on who to get rid of this troublesome message?

Hi all. Irritating & timewasting beyond belief - even for Microsoft - is a hidden shortcut in either Outlook 2007, Office 2007 or perhaps in Windows 7. Centred apparently on the "T" key, a combination of keystrokes reduces the display size of text I type. At enormous waste of time, each occurrence can be remedied, via the View tab in Outlook 2007, then the "zoom" facility. But how do I a) locate the set up instructions for this shortcut, and b) alter or reload them?

I'm a reasonably sensitive typist: this glitch is wasting sooo much of my time. Am in the dire straights of using new Windows 7, with new Office 2007 apps, on a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1545.

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Question: import contacts

is there a way to import my hotmail contacts to my outlook express mail?

Answer:import contacts


Yes there is.

First you have to

Setup Outlook Express to access your Hotmail account:

In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Accounts > Add > Mail
In the Display name field, type your name, and then click Next.
In the E-mail address field, type your Hotmail address, and then click Next.
HTTP should already be in the My incoming mail server is field and Hotmail should already be listed in the My HHTP mail service provider is field. Click Next.
Enter your Hotmail password , check the Remember password box and click Next.
Click Finish and close the Internet Accounts window.
You will be asked: would like to download folders from the mail server you added? It's up to you. It's not necessary if all you want to do is import the contacts.

Import Hotmail Contacts:

Open the Outlook Express Address book and select Tools > Synchronize Now

Your Contacts will begin to download to Outlook Express.

5 folders with contacts in each folder

Answer:How to Import O.E. 6.0 contacts + structure

First things first, you probably need to export your OE address book.
1. Click File/Export/Address Book
2. Click Text File (Comma Separated Values), and then click Export.
3. Locate the Mail Backup folder that you created (or a 3.5 floppy if moving to another computer)
4. In the File Name box, type "address book backup" (without the quote marks) and click Save.
5. Click Next
6. Click to select the check boxes for the fields that you want to export, and then click Finish.
7. click OK and then click Close.

Now open OE at the location where you want to import the address book, click on File/Import and locate the backup file that you just created. The rest is automatic.

Hope this helps!

Basically, I want to manually sync contacts back and forth, between my computer and my phone.

Going from computer to phone, the easiest way for me has been exporting/backing up the computer's .vcf file, moving it to my phone, delete my phones current contact list, and then importing the .vcf file from the computer, which instantly results in an complete, updated list.

However, going in the other direction is my problem.

If I try to do the same in reverse, trying to import the .vcf file into the computer contacts, it wants to do it one contact at a time, instead of the full list all at once.

I suppose they can be Imported/Exported thru gmail, but I would prefer doing it contacts only, without importing gmail contacts

I've got Windows XP, newly installed Office 2007.

Here's the history: I formerly had Outlook 2000, and my .pst went over the 2GB limit, so my Outlook stopped working. Did a patch that truncated the file below 2GB, tried to bring it back into Outlook, but it didn't work.

We installed Outlook 2007, tried to bring back the >2GB .pst, but it appears to be corrupted (we assume--is it?), won't work. When we tried to bring back the truncated file, the first time (we replaced duplicates) it brings back email and over 8000 reminders (some are simply emails, others appeared to be contacts and calendar entries); the second time (we did allow duplicates) I got a few of my tasks back, but not all, and it didn't bring back reminders and does not populate contacts or calendars.

In a nutshell, you will EXPORT from your old PST file and then IMPORT to the new location. You will be able to select what information (inbox, contacts, calendar, etc.) you want to work with.

The PST file by default is named OUTLOOK.PST and is stored on the hard drive. This, however, may have been changed by the individual that original setup your PC.

Sorry - didn't see this thread.

Yeah, the import in WLM and Outlook suffer the same problem. there is no "select all".

So you have to tick each field you want to import.... each time you perform an import. It does remember some fileds, but not the ones you might expect, such as name.

anyway, the default mapping should suffice - just tick all fields and try again.

When I do the import, the only things that show up in the Gmail contacts fields are Name and Email. All of the other items are imported into "Notes" for that contact.
I am wondering if there is a way to import these contacts into Gmail, with them all being placed in their correct places?

Background: I have been searching for a solution to sync contacts on my BlackBerry with my Thunderbird Contacts. Since moving to my Vista Home Premium x64 system (from XP), I decided to move away from Outlook 2000 for good as well due to incompatibilities with Vista as well as performance and security concerns. My BlackBerry did sync flawlessly with Outlook but I am committed to my move to Thunderbird.

Research: I found that the newer versions of BlackBerry Desktop Manager support synchronization with Windows Contacts so I experimented with the exporting of Thunderbird contacts to LDIF format for import to Windows Contacts but this failed (forum posts suggest it's a problem with extended character support in Windows Contacts) so I tried exporting to csv file for import into Windows Contacts.

Solution: The csv file import worked flawlessly after I set up the mapping of all fields that were not recognized by Windows Contacts (a lot of them).

Problem: The mapping of all fields that were not recognized by Windows Contacts was tedious and time consuming since I want to use this process to keep my BlackBerry up to date. Does anyone know if I can save my custom mapping as a template or where the default mapping table resides so I can customize it?

It would be great to be able to perform an import of modified Thunderbird Contact records to Windows Contacts without having to manually set up the mapping every time.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Simple question:
How do I import new contacts from a csv into Outlook Express and Microsoft Outlook by commandline.

Full Explanation:
Part of my job as a Network Administrator is to streamline things as much as possible. One of the ideas we have come up with is to create a script that will update the clients address book. This script would be posted on a secure intranet site so that employees can update their address book quickly without us having to give them a 10 step instruction guide. Some of the users use Microsoft Outlook while others use Outlook Express. I'm thinking detecting which one they are using shouldn't be to hard - just a matter of checking which one is default - probably just checking a registry key. The real problem comes in when I have to import new contacts from a csv or other format file via the command line. I can just replace the address book file with Outlook Express, but this dosn't allow them to keep any of their personal contacts. Any suggestions would be great.

I've been using Windows Live Mail for some time now but have never really liked it and thought I'd try Thunderbird. The installation went OK until I tried to import my contacts. WLM wasn't listed in the email programs so I had to 'browse'. Found my contact csv in My docs but got the message that there was no folder. There is - in fact there are two copies of my contacts each with a different title.

Can anyone please tell me in simple terms how to import contacts from WLM or export to Thunderbird? It will be a laborious process if I have to enter each address manually.

Thank you

guys I'm stumped.

an older Dell laptop that I had kept living for a Lawyer finally croaked, suddenly. The drive is fine, the system is toast. I have a number of small bus accounts and can't recall what version of office/outlook the guy used, so that's part of the problem.
but, found the .pst file intact and saved it off. put in a new WINDOWS 8.1 laptop and of course, the lawyer hates it. Put in Office 2007, imported the old .pst file, and the mail all looks good except the most important part: NO CONTACTS.

I went back and searched the entire drive for *.wab and *.pab files, ... nada. none. [side question: how do I determine which version of Office was on the dead system?]

so... I'm presuming the Contacts should have been somehow embedded in the *.pst file, but not populated. What now??

Answer:Outlook contacts no-show after import.. ??

Importing a PST file is always a bad idea; what you should do is load the PST file to a save location on your disk, then open the file with Outlook.

In Outlook 2007: File | Open | Outlook Data File.

P.S. Contacts may reside on a different PST file; make sure you get all PST files from the old HD.

Answer:Import Hotmail contacts into Outlook

This may or may not work,
1. First have the HotMail acct installed in your OE application. To do this follow instrucitons at this link
2. Than open up Address Book> TOOLS> Press Synchronize Now.
3. This will move contacts from the Address Book's Main Contact folder
(not any contacts in sub-folders that you have created) to the HotMail
Address Book, and visa versa. You will need to check both address books
for duplicate entries, and delete as necessary.

Answer:Export/Import: Mail/Contacts From Outlook

It all depends on what e-mail program you are using. If you are using outlook then you want to copy your *.pst files and *.pab files. *.pab files is your personal address book. Hopefully you created a *.pst files, this is your personal folders. if not then you can either create one or export it. you can also export your calender too.

Hey gang!

I have an issue with Windows Live Mail, it won't let me import contacts, all options are grayed out.

OS: Windows XP, SP3 with all updates, freshly installed.

I successfully imported the email accounts, messages AND contacts after I installed Windows Live Mail. When I launched the program the next day, everything was fine except there were no contacts listed. I saw them there after the import (over 500 entries) but now they are all gone. The contact list is a .csv file exported from Windows Live Mail prior to reinstalling the OS. So I attempted to do the import all over again except I can't; all the import options are grayed out. I can create a new contact from scratch as well as create categories/groups but it won't let me import a contact list. With over 500 entries to restore I really don't want to do them by hand!

Any ideas?

Hello Group,

Trying to import one long Excel 2007 column which has only e-mail addresses, into a specific folder in my Windows Contacts. I want to then create a new contact group and then Open that folder with the imported addresses, and do a single Add step, selecting all the imported addresses, from the folder into the new contact group.

Have read some posts about this but it is not working for me (PC Windows Home Premium, Office 2007). Step-by-step:

OK, I save the Excel as a CSV file. Then Tools>Windows Contacts and open the destination folder. Clicking Import > CSV > Import and browse to the Excel file saved in CSV format > Open > Next

Then "Map the fields you wish to import" window appears, showing only the first e-mail address (from the top of the Excel column).

I click on Change Mapping and select "E-mail address" from the list of fields, tick the Import this Field box, and OK, then Finish. Voila.

The e-mails are imported, but they are scattered throughout my Contacts, and the destination folder remains empty.

How do I import to a specific folder in my Windows Contacts? I did not see a destination folder option during the import process, but that folder was opene when I did the import.

Thanks for looking in. Hope someone can solve this, as otherwise I must handle the addresses one-by-one into the Contact Group.

Hi, recently have been transferred from using Outlook for email to Lotus Notes at my workplace.

None of the techy guys have come up with a good way to transfer my Outlook contacts which are local to my laptop to my local address book in Lotus Notes.

Looking for a easy way to do this and free of course!!

Any ideas?


Answer:Import Outlook contacts to Lotus Notes

In Outlook, click File, Import Export, select export to a file, select file type - most likely Comma separated or Tab separated will work.
But you may need to do some editing of exported file Excel to comply with LotusNotes field naming conventions, sequence of fields, etc.

Perhaps this will be useful to your techy guys (who should have prepared for this when they switched you, what were they thinking of!)

If you describe what your techs already tried and failed to do, someone here will find an answer. Also computer system and Outlook version might help.

Moved from Software Development
Hi, We are a team of 25 who all use the same contact list (which contains addresses, organisation name, tel numbers, emails, contact names etc for approx 600 organisations). We regularly have to bcc all these contacts in to emails. We previously all held the distribution lists (sorted alphabetically by email) and had to let the rest of the team know when details changed so they could be updated by all. The problem with this was that the distribution lists do not hold all the information needed (e.g. addresses, organisation names) and contact information was not always updated as it should have been. I have updated an excel spreadsheet containing all the information and I would like to create a macro for all the team to periodicaly import this data in to Outlook Contacts and possibly create distribution lists from these.

I posted this on the Windows 7 forum but never got any responses:

I have been using Outlook 2003. I want to use WLM in Win 8. I have installed WLM on Win 8. I also have a copy of WLM installed on Win 7, although I haven't been using it - just there in case I get a call from a client about it.

I created an e-mail account in Windows 7 and 8 WLM for my POP (ISP) e-mail account (the only account).

I exported my Outlook 2003 contacts to a CSV (comma separated DOS) file. I start WLM in Win 7 (or Win 8 they both work identical) and select contacts and then "Import" Comma Separated Values CSV and select the CSV file created with Outlook 2003. WLM goes through the motions like its importing but when its finished there are no contacts imported.

In Outlook 2003, I have "Contacts" and also a sub contacts folder for a club e-mail list. I only want my regular Contacts, not the club e-mail list. However, if I select "Address book for current user" in WLM it will import the club e-mail list only.

I've been over google searches and this forum's tutorials and searches and didn't come up with anything I haven't done or tried.
