Re: How can I import Outlook contacts (all email address) to Sage ACT.

Hello ravi

 

I would take one of 2 approaches:

 

1. Use the synchronization feature and synch your Outlook contacts to ACT

 

2. Use Excel.  I like controlling what is being imported and the mapping of the fields.  Therefore, I would export to Excel then map the fields from the Excel Import.  Note:  Do not use the latest version of Excel -- use Excel 97 - 2003 format.  You should have fewer problems that way.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: How can I import Outlook contacts (all email address) to Sage ACT.

I too have tried to use the ACT Import Wizard to bring in Outlook contacts (only 5 out of over 500 show up when the import is completed). I have also tried the Outlook Synchronization, only to find it does nothing.

It is disappointing to find these built in features do not work. While exporting contacts to Excel and then importing them into ACT temporarily resolves the problem, the long term problem of synchronization between ACT and Outlook remains.
