Addresses from Outlook Express to Outlook Contact Book

How can I import a .cvs file, exported from my Outlook Express address book into a Outlook 2000 Contact list.

I tried it and it appeared to be working, but it never prompted me for the location of my .cvs file.

Using the Import tool in the Outlook files menu, you can import the address book from Outlook Express directly. You don't need to export the address book to a .cvs-file first.

If you - for some reason - have a .cvs file that you want to import - you choose "Import from another program or file" and choose "Comma separated values (Windows)" in the import tool in Outlook - and then it WILL ask you for a location.

You must have chosen the first option and imported directly from Outlook Express when trying this.
