Import Contacts from Outlook into CRM as Accounts
I have a customer with about 800 Contacts within Outlook and I need to import
them into CRM as accounts. How can this be done easily? Is there an easy
way to do this, or another way to go about getting this done?
I will try and answer this.
First, you should understand that Outllook stores all of its data (Contacts,
Mail Messages, Tasks, etc.) in a PST file (usually contact.pst) and this file

I imported my contacts from outlook 2003 into entourage. After import,

of directly transferring information from Outlook into Entourage.
Paul Berkowitz's "Export-Import Entourage" script set will transfer data
between Outlook & Entourage, taking care of these issues.

fields in Inventory. That still didn't work. QSC attached to the DB and the

be looked at from HQ in any other manner than drilling down? Thanks for any

Paste special into Publisher as unformatted text. You will not be able to match
Publisher's formatting, but it will be easier to edit this way.
