I am importing a list of contacts from Excel into Outlook 2003. I want to import to the "Nickname" field, but when I get to the "Map Custom Fields" window, it isn't listed. How do you add fields to be available in "Map Custom Fields"?

I haven't been able to discover a way to change the list of Outlook fields available to be mapped to.  I see two solutions.  One, write your own improt routine using VBA.  Two, import the nickname field from Excel to one of the four user fields in Outlook and then use a simple macro to move that data to the nickname field.
