    Hi,
    Can someone point me to documentation on how to import contacts into Outlook when the contact list is in some other format - in this case a .rtf file?
    I thought it would be good to run some automated procedure to get the .rtf file into the format that outlook expects for an import of contacts.
    Thanks

    Would it be possible for you to create a CSV file instead of a RTF file?

    Someone else maybe able to help you with this better, but I have heard that "A RTF file is difficult if not impossible to import into Outlook contacts."
