    Yahoo imports: Microsoft Outlook (CSV File).

    There is nothing in the address book that allows you to export, so under MS 2003 Outlook they is nothing that permits me to export to CSV. I suppose I need an upgrade but I am selling my business and don't want to spend the moeny right now for that.

    Hi mis2ko

    Sure it does. :)
    .csv = comma separated values

    In Outlook 2003,
    File > Import and Export > Export to a file > Next > Next
    Select the Contacts folder
    Next >

    Browse to the location where you want the .csv file saved.
    Next > Finish

    Point Yahoo to the .csv file.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.

    There is no Contacts folder. These are the floders that show up:
    Comma Sep (dos) and (Windows)
    MS Excel
    MC Access
    Personal Folder
    Tab Sep. (Dos) and (Windows)

    Would the personal folder work?

    Keep the default selection of Comma Separated Values (DOS) and click Next
    The next window will give you the opportunity to select the Contacts folder.

    What does it want to install? :confused:

    Close out of that window and try the Export again, this time select the Comma Separated Values (Windows) option.

    Do you have Excel installed?

    You might also try going backwards.

    Export the Yahoo Contacts to your computer, open that file to see if the formats (columns) are the same.

    If not, you could copy the Outlook.csv contents to the Yahoo.csv file and Import that back into Yahoo.

    Yahoo would create a .csv file on your computer. It would not touch Outlook.
