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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
