The original question was how can I import Lotus org 6.1 data into Microsoft outlook 2003. The response I recieved was to export to vCard (*.vsc) unfortuanly that option does not exist in the export portion of Lotus org. I does have .txt and .vcf. I have tried both and although it seems to export on .vcf format, Microsoft outlook 2003 will not import it.

Here is the like I was kindly provided.

Yes, I've given that KB in the link Steve posted above.

Steve, take a look here:

Are you saying that under the export options, there is no vcard option?  If not, what options do you have?

Hi and the problem still exists. It seems that I can only export contacts in plain text or vcf format, and MS imports in vcs, that seems to be my problem. Any help welcomed as this is been driving me nuts for 3 years now.

Well, I see an option in 2000 to import vcf, yes, it says that its a calednar, but you may want to give it a shot and see what happens.

I suppose you can't email yourself your organizer contacts as vcards?

Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to help me. It is getting harder and harder not to move to MS. Particularly when using other devices. Anyway, the think is I followed the insructions to the letter and everything went to plan, I creat the export file as directed, then when I open Outlook and try to import the browse box just does not see the Tab Separated Values (Windows), file format, as it could not see the other one. This is driving me nuts. I hope you are one of those who can't let go of a problem and has to fix

Thanks again.
Steve

Just to check, you are following these steps to import the tab seperate value into Outlook 2003?

"On the File menu, click Import And Export.
In Choose an action to perform, click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
In Select file type to import from, click the file type that matches your data (Tab Seperated Value), and then click Next.
In File To Import, type the path and file name of the file that you want to import, or click Browse to navigate to the file, and then click Next.
In Select Destination Folder, click the folder that you want to import to, and then click Next.
Confirm that the destination folder is correct, and then click Finish."

It will only locate files like *.CSV.  If the file extension is txt or vcf, it will not see it and not be able to use it.

If, as you said " It seems that I can only export contacts in plain text or vcf format" why are you trying to import to Outlook using the CSV option?
