I have a Law office client that wants their outlook contacts (many Folders) setup in an Excel file so they may print copies for all office staff.
I can export 1 folder at a time, but there are over 100 folders with many entries in each. Then I have to somehow combine over 100 .xls files together.

then in msdos windows
type *.csv > C:\import.csv

1. In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
2. Click Export to a file, and then click Next.
3. Click Microsoft Excel, and then click Next.
4. In the folder list, click the Contacts folder, and then click Next.
5. Browse to the folder where you want to save the contacts as an Excel file (.xls).
6. Type a name for the exported file, and then click OK.

I don't know of any built-in feature that would do this, so it's a question of writing some macros that achieve what you want.  You need two stages:
1) An Outlook macro that goes through the 100 contacts folders and exports to CSV files
2) An Excel macro that reads the CSV files and combines them.
