Perform an export of your existing contacts to CSV by using Outlook.
Use the header of this file and update the information from your list of contacts.
Import the resulted file with Outlook.
It is hard to see why without much information. however I would suggest you to EXPORT to a csv file your current Contacts, and compare the format of this with the one you wish to import. Compare the columns structure (number of columns, headings etc.)

The problem sounds like the two are not quite compatible, probably because of the file struction

Hello venkataramanaiahsr,

As the above comments imply, Outlook is particular about the format of the importing CSV file.  Using Excel spreadsheet, change the format of probelm CSV file to be more friendly with Oultook format. Then try to import.

Hope this helps!
