Hey everyone,

I accidentally saved the contents of a mail folder from outlook 2003 as a .csv file, and I really need those emails to be loaded into my new outlook 2010 application.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

-Jerry

Hello jerrymck,

It might be possible to do that. myrti has pointed me to this article: http://helpdeskgeek.com/office-tips/importing-emails-to-outlook-from-a-csv-file/ which explains how to import your mail in Outlook from a cvs file. Please note that the article was written a few years ago and so an earlier version of Outlook was discussed, but it may also work with the newer version. Please let us know if it works out for you.

Awesome. Well, it worked for one CSV file, but for the other, I get an error message. the error states : A file error has occured in comma seperated values translator while initiating a translator"
it goes on telling me to make sure i have correct permissions and to make sure the file is not open elsewhere in another program. Any tips for that error?

Hello there,

After doing some research, I have a couple of ideas.

1) Reboot the machine, then try to import the file again. That way, if any other program has a hold on the file, the hold will be released with the reboot.

2) Make sure the file isn't set to "read only"

3) Open the file in another application such as Excel. Once open, choose Save As, and save it as a new file. Close Excel, then try to import the newly saved file.

Hi

One or two other thoughts,

1.Try doing it in Safe mode, just in case.

2. try copying the file to make sure it is OK.

3. check the file size, It may not be all there.

4. Try and see if there is a deleted copy of the file that can be recovered with http://www.piriform.com/recuva

 

Good Luck

Roger
