I am trying to import a text file into Outlook contacts and want to include the category.  Currently the file is tab delimited but can be converted to comma delimited.
Thanks in advance,
Marvin

Create some contacts with your categories
Export to CSV
Look at in Excell -> data -> text to columns ->  find Column Categories
Then you can found signs for any category you defined
Create in yoour excell column category, define categories
At import in outlook -> map your defined columns to real columns in outlook

(I hope this will help you)
