Re: Sync Windows contacts & Outlook 2007 contacts
To import your contacts from Outlook 2007 (should work for previous versions of Outlook as well), use the following steps:
- Open Outlook 2007 and export your contacts using Outlook's Import/Export feature. Click File, Import and Export, select Export to a file, choose Comma Separated Values (Windows), click Contacts, and choose a path and file name to save the file to. Exit Outlook 2007.
- Now open Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) and use the programs' Import feature to add the CSV file you just created. In Outlook Express, click File, Import, Other Address Book; and then select Text file (Comma Separated Values). Choose Import and select the CSV file you created in step 1.
In Windows Mail, select File, Import, Windows Contacts; click CSV (Comma Separated Values) and choose the CSV file you created in step 1.
- Once the contacts have been imported into Outlook Express or Windows Mail, you export the contacts back to a CSV file. Give the new export file a different name so you do not overwrite the original Outlook 2007 contacts CSV file.
In Outlook Express, select File, Export, Address Book; choose Text file (Comma Separated Values), click Export, and enter a path and file name to save the contacts to.
For Windows Mail, select File, Export, Windows Contacts. Click CSV (Comma Separated Values), choose Export, and select a path and file name to save the contacts to.
- To import the contacts into Gmail's contact list, log into your Gmail account and click the Contacts link in the left column. After the page has loaded, click the Import link in the upper right, select the CSV file that you created in Outlook Express or Windows Mail, and click the Import button.
