Importing Contact from Excel

[ Edited ]
When I try to import contacts from excel the titles don't line up for example on the address line it would show the phone number.  I used the drop down menus to make the titles line up but when I go and export they don't import into the right areas.  What do I need to do, all help is appreciated, thanks.

Re: Importing Contact from Excel

It sounds like you have a mapping problem. Try starting the import wizard and be sure the left column(Excel information) matches the right column(ACT destination). You will have to expand the ACT mapping fields, I had the same type of issue because unless you expand the contact information it will be put into a different field than where you think it is going.

I hope it helps

Another option is to have Outlook Contacts import the Excel sheet, then import the Outlook contacts into ACT.

It always seems that Outlook to ACT works so much easier.

Just a thought
