I have several hundred websites stored in Excel.
How can I import them into my Favorites folder in IE?

I tried saving as HTML, TXT and then using the IE import wizard, but received message "Invalid bookmark format"

Thanks!

This is a bit backwards but it should work

1. Export current favorites to bookmark.htm
2. Using Excels concatenate function to create your bookmark page entries
For e.g.

Column A                                                          Column D
<p><DT><A HREF="

Column B
http://www.yourlinks.com

Column C
" ADD_DATE="1161831623" LAST_VISIT="1163052851" LAST_MODIFIED="1161831624">

Column D
=B1&"</A>

Column E
=A1&B1&C1&D1

Select Column A and drag to the bottom of your list this should now drag Column C, D and E to the bottom of your list as well
Once completed copy Column E into the Bookmark.htm file between the header and footer.  I hope you get what I mean and hope that helps.

Cheers
