I like to always know when a particular entry was made. So if I have a

Along those lines -- keeping the information regarding when I sent and
when they sent a message last is important. but it isn't included in
the DB or .vcf - I have to reload my 2200 contacts from time-to-time
and when I do, that data is lost. Is there another way to ensure that
I can keep this data?

Normally when you click on a csv file excel opens it witout problem. However
I have one user who when they click on the csv file finds that it open in an
unformatted state. In order to open the file properly she has to go through
the import process and place a tick in the comma section. When this is done
all the data is formatted correctly. I am able to open this file without
problem on my machine.
In order to try and fix this I uninstalled and reinstalled office. I also
tried doing it under another profile on the same machine to see if it was a
profile problem. It also failed.

I am getting a generic "An error has occurred" when I try to import a report

If the report was originally created in CRM and i don't modify it, then i
can import the report fine but as soon as i modify it, for example, by
creating a new dataset and try to import it. It will fail.
Any ideas? The CRM reports are not sufficient for my needs so i need to

would input Bloggs, Jimmy & Jane. I then Save and Close.

Outlook and Outlook Express use different rule engines and not all of the
rules OE supports can be imported into Outlook. Describe one of the rules
that didn't import and perhaps someone can tell you why it didn't.
...number of fields exceeds 256 when importing from a dbf file
I'm having a small problem with importing some old data from a FileMaker Pro
database. According to what I found out in the groups archive the best bet is
to convert it to a dbf file and then import it. However, I the number of
fields in the dbf file exceeds 256, so the import wizard truncates the import
at field number 256.
I would now want to spread the data over two sheets. However, in the process
of converting it to a dbf, quite a few of the field names get truncated and
therefore have the same name, so I can't use SQL to retrieve them. My

sort and behave again?
You'll need to clarify what you did. OE does not use a Personal Address
Book. Tell us what you actually imported and how. Tell us what Outlook
version. Tell us where the sort order is not correct.
