    this is nuts
    basic excel file with normal columns
    (eg company, first, last , phone, cell, etc)
    I can import 300 of 360 records?
    no rhyme or reason as to ones that are not importing
    where can I go for info?
    (hehe - nit the help section please)

    FIXED :) outlook - not importing ALL names from Excel file

    silly me = did a Google search
    "all records not import from Excel to Outlook"
    seems to be a UNIVERSAL PROBLEM
    what else is new (sic MS)
    anyway
    even though a DIRECT OPTION EXISTS between TWO MS programs
    it DOES NOT WORK !
    solution = EXCEL export to CSV, then use OUTLOOK to import CSV

    thought I'd share the solution
    (sorry for yelling )
    but this cost me a WHOLE DAY!
    I was taught problems were operator errors - not system
    well - not this time
