How to convert Excel sheet contact list to my Outlook profile

deepakx kumar


I was working on Excel for few years & saved my contacts in an Excel sheet & list of contacts is of about 2500 members. Now, when I am trying to move contacts list to my Outlook profile, it just not works. Problem comes when Outlook is supposed to do the mapping of the columns, it only results in one column.


Main issue:  Mapping of contact details is not done correctly. How to perform this task correctly with easy steps & not wasting much time?


Any kind of help is appreciable!!

There are many, many software solutions for excel to outlook conversion; just do a Google search and you will see hundreds. Unfortunately, your question is going to bring the spammers out like ants at a picnic, each giving a link to their 3rd rate software. Think about it, if you have decent software, are you going to spam forums with links to a “buy it now” page? Of course not. 


As a rule, I never purchase anything from any company that spams forums, and I hope everyone follows that rule (1) prevent the spread of poor quality software, and (2) ensure that spammers do not profit from their efforts. 


Fortunately, Answers seems pretty well moderated, so most of the spam gets taken down pretty quickly here.
