Hello all , i would give all my available points if any one will give me a system using outlook to import a file with 2 contacts (vcard format) into outlook.
The closest i got was generating 2 files and opening them together , but i need to import thousends of address and i can't have a file for each.
Any idea ?

* open the file with a text editor and verify that each VCard has a blank line separating them
* the last line in the file is a blank line
* make sure that each card begins with BEGIN:VCARD and ends with END:VCARD

another try would be to import them in another program and through import / export in outlook | file menu choose to import from another file

hope this helps a bit

It may not be possible to support more than one v-card per contact in Outlook. See discussion supporting this Outpod add-on  http://outpod.stoer.de/

Slipstick Systems has links for numerous add-ins and shareware to deal with addresses in Outlook. Since you know where your contact information is coming from, you may be able to find the right link. http://www.slipstick.com/config/convaddr.htm
