I have been using the Palm desktop address book and want to convert to Google Contacts.  I did this successfully a year ago.  I made a csv file from a new category in the Palm desktop by exporting.  I then imported it into Google contacts.  I received no error messages.  When complete, I searched for my information in Google contacts but it wasn't there. I made several searches.  I am attaching one of the csv files that I made.

I would like to amplify my question:
