    Export Contacts to .vcf File? (Outlook 2000 SR-1)

    Hi There... I would search for this but can't...... ;-)

    Can anyone point me at a thread that discusses how to export all Contacts to a .vcf file. (Mobile phone stuff I think..)

    Regards

    Hi Leif

    Thanks and apologies... I should have emphasised the ALL part of my query. i.e. Is there a 'batch' conversion method available anywhere?

    Regards
    Peter

    By design VCF files hold an individual contact. By chance are you looking for a CSV (comma separated values) file? For a bulk conversion of VCF files, you can select all the required files, and then select Actions, Forward as VCard, from where they are placed into a draft e-mail. Then you can save all those Vcards as files from the e-mail to the hard drive.

    I didn't mention that for Comma Separated Values files, use the Export wizard under the File menu.

    Hi John - No you didn't.. but I knew about that anyways.. it was specifically this batch export of vcf files the guy wanted... Your trick with the e-mail should do it for him. If not.. he can pop along to forum himself and ask further questions. Thanks agin for your help, appreciated.

    Regards
