Trouble importing all contacts from a CSV file in ACT! 2008

I'm trying to import a list of about 2500 contacts from a Notepad CSV file into ACT! 2008. When I import the file, only the first 150 contacts from the list are actually imported. I can't figure out why it's only importing 150 since the entire file is in the same format, and there should be many more contacts.

 

Can someone assist me with this issue?

 

Thanks,

Re: Trouble importing all contacts from a CSV file in ACT! 2008

It may be hitting an invalid record in the source file that is halting the import. Make sure there are no records where the contact name is blank, or where there are non-alphanumeric characters. You may want try opening this file in Excel to save in a columnar format (as a .csv file) and make the data easier to manage.
