Export contacts from a public folder and import as Active Directory contacts
Posted on 2006-04-27
I have a public folder called "UK Customers" on my Exchange 5.5 server. This contains a couple of hundred sub-folders which are named by company. Each of these company sub-folders contains several contacts.
What I want to do is export all of these contacts as a .csv file and then import them into Active Directory as contacts, thus making them accessible through the Global Address List on my new Exchange 2003 server.
If I export to a .pst file (copied the folders on to my Outlook contacts folder), I get a checkbox for exporting all sub folders as well. If I choose .csv or Excel, then I cannot get the sub folders to go as well.
I have looked through the solutions on this site, but I can't find one which gets me where I need to go.
