Mass names.nsf to CSV/pst

I have a project at work and was hoping some one here has an easy way to do this. I need to convert about 175 users, each with there own names.nsf file to a format OutLook can unsderstand, say csv and import them to there pst/exchange. If there is a better format then csv let me know.

What i would like to find out, is there any way to do a names.nsf to csv in batchs not one at a time sitting at each clients pc, either with free 3rd party software, on the lotus server as an admin or write a batch to have each pc access Lotus and export the names.nsf to csv and save it. Any one of those would work but i cant figure out how to do any of them. I can have lotus export to csv no problem if i use the GUI, but i dont know how to do it from a batch.

As far as importing the csv's to OutLook, i think this will have to be done per user. But i plan on having each user import there own csv with directions i give them.

Any help or ideas would be great!

Give all users DAMO and keep the Domino server.




Now I would create a button in a blank DB, and put the agent into it, and send it out to each user via mail.

Have the export file sent back to a mail-in DB, so that you can easily keep track of who has finished the export.

I hope this helps !

IT would of taken to long to do it this way so i ended up converting each user by hand. Out of the 150 users only about 25 had a personal address book, so the conversion was not that bad.
