Hi, recently have been transferred from using Outlook for email to Lotus Notes at my workplace.

None of the techy guys have come up with a good way to transfer my Outlook contacts which are local to my laptop to my local address book in Lotus Notes.

Looking for a easy way to do this and free of course!!

Any ideas?

Thanks

In Outlook, click File, Import Export, select export to a file, select file type - most likely Comma separated or Tab separated will work.
But you may need to do some editing of exported file Excel to comply with LotusNotes field naming conventions, sequence of fields, etc.

Perhaps this will be useful to your techy guys (who should have prepared for this when they switched you, what were they thinking of!)

If you describe what your techs already tried and failed to do, someone here will find an answer. Also computer system and Outlook version might help.

Pariculary might be useful is the Windows version, version of Outlook and Lotus Notes.

I agree with tos226. What were they thinking of and they should have planned ahead for every possible failure.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi, sorted it thanks.

Wasnt working at first as Outlook kept crashing when trying to export but once id done an update on Outlook it worked.

Yes the techs should have sorted this out before but i'll not bore you with the details why. Just inter-company politics!!
