Greetings, gjcarter !

You can export the contacts from Goldmine as a DBF file, and import the DBase file into Outlook

Although the article uses Outlook 2000, it will work for Outlook 2003.

Best wishes!

I tried your solution but with Outlook 2003 there is no Import DBF file option. I did attempt using the Import From Another File and then selected the Act option as it appears to be related to DBF.

Unfortunately I then receive a message indicating that I need to ahve Act installed on my computer.

Is there an addition in Office 2003 to specifically import DBF files?  Any other thoguths.  thanks

>> there is no Import DBF file option

There should be an import dBase file option, which is the same as DBF.
