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?

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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
