I recently retired and the IT dept. gave me a disc with my personal contacts listed on an Excel spreadsheet. Is there a way to move the list from Excel to Outlook without typing them in one at a time?

Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer, I would be happy to help you today.

You can import the Excel file into your Outlook contacts as follows:

In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next. Click Microsoft Excel, and then click Next.
In the File to import box, browse to find the Excel file (.xls) that contains the content you want to import. Click one of the following: Replace duplicates with items imported, allow duplicates to be created or do not import duplicate items, then click next.
In the folder list, click the Contacts folder where you want the imported contact information to go, and then click next. To add or remove fields to determine the way the contact information is saved in the new imported file, click Map Custom Fields.

Dan,

 

I don't know what's going on. I received an answer almost immediately after I asked my question. It was answered by another expert and I accepted his answer. I did not receive your answer at all and I just got home to find your request to accept your answer.

 

Sorry, I can't accept an answer I didn't receive.

 

Respectfully,

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
