Ultimately I need this in Outlook as individual contacts... the data I
have is 20K+rows long including line breaks between records, which
works out to approximately 1/8 that many individual contact records. I
am assuming I need to wrestle with this in excel before sending it to

What is the best way to convert this, and can someone walk me through
at least the basics? I cannot seem to find a reliable way using any of
the import functions.
