I need to export a simple CSV from outlook containing First Name, Last Name, Number.

This is for my PBX system which will only import CSV files of this format.

Outlook contacts contain several phone numbers, I need the CSV to contain a new line for each number - and if possible append to the name the number type.

For example

Outlook Contact shows

First/Last Name: John Smith
Business Phone: 01234567890
Mobile Phone: 07777567890
Home Phone: 01987987654

I want the CSV to export as follows

"First Name","Last Name","Number"
"John","Smith (Business)","01234567890"
"John","Smith (Mobile)","07777567890"
"John","Smith (Home)","01987987654"

The appended number type is not essential if its impossible, but would be nice.

Is there anybody who can write a script to achieve this or is there some 3rd party app that may help me?
