Hello again,I can't export my Yahoo contacts to Outlook.
I don't have that box as an option. But when I click on Actions, then export I am given several options to include Outlook. I click on Outlook and get a window with a red "X" and "This content cannot be displayed in a frame.
did you choose microsoft outlook
Yes. Then the security code (to make sure I am not a robot). then the red "X"
could you try in another browser
such as firefox
Let me try chrome. Please wait.
I am having trouble. How do I do this? Change my browser.
just open google chrome
keep this open
enter chrome as well
do you have it installed
Using google chrome, I followed the commands. Did not get the red "X" but all it did was open my contacts as an excel spread sheet. Did not export.

with contacts right

Where do I find the info of what I want to import?

I have the yahoo_ab.csv file in the Outlook browser window. When I click next it asks me to select destination folder.
just double click on it
in browse window
Won't let me
Under the Outlook browser window (where I have the yahoo_ab.csv listed) there are three options;file to Import
oops. First option - Replace duplicates with items imported Second option - Allow duplicated to be created Option three - Do not import duplicates. I have selected the second option. Then I click next and it asks me to select a destination folder.
select desktop as destination folder
In the folder list, click the Contacts folder where you want the imported contact information to go, and then click Next.
Desktop is not an option
I tried contacts and received the same error message
Error message states; Verify I have the correct file, permission to open it and that it is not running in another program
repeat the process and try opton 1 or option 3
I tried one and three and received the same message.
give me amin
Do the following:
Now it will work
DO not worry
we need to have csv instead we were using excel
follow these steps and should work like a charm
What do I select for destination folder; contacts?
Looking good, but checking
Patience paid :)
Yes. Thank you very much, have a great day.
