Hi dm25,

Perhaps the easiest thing to do is to select Import and Export under the File menu, and use the wizard to export
your contact data to an Excel or CSV file...

Regards,

Patrick

Greetings, dm25 !

Export the contacts as a CSV file. In Outlook, go to File > Import and Export > Export to a File > Comma Separated Value and then follow the prompts.

Best wishes!

Greetings, dm25.

What format do you want them in?  matthewspatrick and war1 have given you the simplest and most straightforward way to export contacts to the hard drive, but is CSV the format you had in mind?  If not, then please provide more details about what you want to accomplish by exporting.

Cheers!

dm25,

With no disrespect intended toward war1, how is it that you chose his response over mine?  My suggestion was identical,
and came in sooner.  I would not have objected to a split, but I do think this disposition is very unfair.

dm25,

I agree with mathewspatrick.  We posted about the same time, but Patrick posted first.  So he should get the points, or at least you could have split the points.

Thanks for the support, war1.  When two Experts come in with the same answer within a couple of minutes of each other,
I never object to a split--this is about helping people, not about speed-typing :)
