Exporting subset of Outlook 2007 contacts?

I wonder if it is possible to export just a subset of the contacs I have in my Outlook 2007 Contacts? I have tried first to search for a specific category and then export, but when I do this ALL records are exported! What am I missing?

During the export process, when you get to the screen that says "Select the Folder to Export From", there is a filter button at the button.  If you click that, then on the "More choices" tab, you can select a category there.  That should allow you to export just the subset that you want.

Sorry, that should say "at the bottom" and not "at the button"

Hi, boyerm25! The problem for me is that I cannot find any filtering option at all in my version of Outlook 2007!

Thank you very much! But it was really a great surprise that Outlook 2007 has not come further in this respect and that one has to resort to such awkward workarounds!

I do agree with you DWOLTERS!  Should be much more intuitive.  Select and export eh?

Thanks very much.  Glad I was able to help.
