Greetings, mth2020 !

You need to copy the adress into Excel. Save it as a CSV file. Then import the CSV to Outlook. Here is how to do it with Gmail, but it is similar for Outlook

Creating the file is the most difficult part. To import a CSV file to Outlook, open Outlook and select File > Import and Export > Import from another program or file. Select Comma Separated Value (Windows) and hit Next.
