    Lotus Notes to Outlook (Outlook 2007)

    I use Lotus Notes ver. 7 at work and Outlook 2007 at home. I would like to copy my Lotus Notes address book into Outlook 07.
    I canít for the life of me figure out how to do it.
    Can anyone help me? Is it even possible?

    According to a TechRepublic thread which I initially found and then it 404'd, you should be able to export the file to a CSV. Then export a sample file from Outlook Contacts, import it to Excel to and get the header record names, then import the Notes CSV file and align the records from Notes to the Outlook contact field order, then import to Outlook. There are also commercial products:

    Hi John,
    Thanks for the reply. I tried that csv trick with Excel 2003 and every thing seemed to go fine but when I tried to import it into Outlook it just said no. Looks like I'm going to go with another app. I really don't like Outlook and the 2007 version is particularly difficult to deal with (not crazy about Lotus Notes either). Good link, I may end up buying something like that, or just end up typing the addresses in.

    If you can convert to vCard format, that should be importable into Outlook and other clients. Might need an intermediate CSV for that, too.

    Hi Jeff,
    I didn't even think about vCards. That might just work. I'll certainly give it a try.
    Thanks,
