Export exchange contacts to .csv file

Hello all,

I run exchange 2010 on a server 2008r2 blade server.  I'm trying to export contacts from outlook 2007 to a .csv file.  After I do the export when I open the .csv file all the contacts that were on our exchange server show up like this in the email column:


in the E-mail display column of the .csv file it shows this:

some one (someone@wherever.xx.xx)

The email in brackets is the correct email address.  I could manually go through each .csv file and fix things but I have around 50 users with hundreds of contacts each for so that's not really an option I like.  Is there a way I can export to a .csv where the exchange accounts have the proper emails in the email column?

In this case, I would suggest to use notepad to edit the source cvs file. First in Excel delete the garbage email column, then after saving it, open it in Notepad, replace " (" with "," or ";" (whatever the other delimiting characters), then replace ")" with "" (nothing). Don't actually input the quotes. You will now have a display name without the email, which is moved to it's own column, but I think you wouldn't mind.
