iPhone Contacts Import

Here is my process.
I created a "memorized" report for QuickBooks 2007.  I export that report to Excel.  I save the Excel workbook into a CSV file.

I import the CSV file into my Mac Mini's contact application.

I sync my iPhone contacts with this Mac Mini contact application.

Now all of my QuickBooks customers show up on my iPhone... except for contacts that don't have a first name and a last name (only a company name).

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

To import the contacts at least you need enter firstname or lastname to import.because most of the app use these keywords to import the contacts.

Thanks for the effort sekar4u...

I exported to Excel and supplied a zzz in all the blank first names and last.

When I import into the Contacts app the businesses now show up with a first and last name of zzz AND I can search by company... but, alas, the iphone still doesn't pick them up.

In my Contacts app I now have 30 zzz zzz contacts and none on my iPhone.

Hello
Make a separate CSV file only with the fault contacts, rename the "company name" column to the exact name that should have, for example "Full Name" and continue with the procedure that you already did to import them.

The import process sees only the first line of the CSV, only the descriptions matter
Name      EmailAddress etc

Kostasp... realize that I already have some companies that do work... that already had a first and last name.  These contacts I CAN search by name or company.  It is as if the import process ignored zzz zzz.

So you can see them correct in your CSV but the results fails for the iphone?

But you mentioned that...
except for contacts that don't have a first name and a last name (only a company name).

So, they do have a first name and a last name or just a company name?
