    Saving V-Card into my Contacts (Office Pro 2003)

    I have received a v-card in an email. I want to easily save this card to my Contacts. I have checked HELP and a book I have on Outlook 2003, and I am doing what the instructions say, but the card is not saved to my Contacts. When I double click and select SAVE, in am in a Save Dialog Box that automatically opens to My Documents. I can save the v-card any place but where I want to save it. Someone please help, as soon as possible.

    Jan, try mouse-dragging the vCard onto your Contacts Folder.

    I assume the v-card was received as an attachment. Simply double clicking the attachment should open the v-card as a contact (same screen as if you double clicked a contact). Then simply click Save and Close on the toolbar.

    Thanks, John. The first time I tried to do that, it didn't work. I tried it again after your response and this time it worked. The thing is, it is not a simple thing to drag it into the Contacts. I have to open Contacts in a new window, resize that window and the email window, and then drag. There has got to be an easier way.

    It is an attachment in the email, but the steps to get it into the Contacts simply does not work. Have you tried it?

    Works for me. In fact, I just sent myself an test email with a v-card attached and it works exactly as it is supposed to.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnBF on 07-Oct-04 14:58. )</P>1. Yes, you have to resize things so that the source and target are visible. However, you do not need to open the Contacts folder. Just drag the vCard attachment to the target Contacts folder icon in the Outlook folder explorer.

    2. Instead of "Save", try "Save and Close", it's working for me in 2003. However, it appears to always save to the default Contacts folder; you can't select among multiple Contacts folders.

    The key is to OPEN and then SAVE and CLOSE. I was not opening it. Good thing it is Thursday. Thank you for your prompt response.
