Importing a Single Outlook Contact

I am trying to find out how to import just one Outlook Contact into ACT. When I use the Act Import wizard, it only gives me the option to import all of my contacts in Outlook.
Any help would be appreciated

Your best bet would be to get a third party app such as Contact Capture ( and use that.  You cannot "import" just one from Outlook, but you can using this program.

Re: Importing a Single Outlook Contact



for only one contact, just retype the data.


However, if you really want to import, then:

  • in Outlook create a new Contacts Folder
  • move the contact record to the new folder (drag)
  • export the folder to Excel
  • save the file as .csv
  • import to ACT!

Tidy up Outlook when you finish.
