I have two executives who have spent there careers using cardfile (.crd). I want to get their information out and in a different format so they can exchange information with their PDA's. The probleme with retyping them is there are over 400 records.Is there any way? (3rd party or not it doesn'rt matter!) Thanks for any help in advance

Technet Article Q164994 answers this, saying there is no converter but there are two workarounds:

Below are brief outlines of workarounds, but do to limited space I will give you also the URL to the article:

Workaround 1
Use the Import/Export Add-on Pack for Schedule+ Version 7.0, to import the Windows Cardfile file into Schedule+ and then into Outlook.

Workaround 2
You can import Windows Cardfile files into Outlook using a three-step Process.
Print the Cardfile records to a text file.


Manipulate the comma-delimited file in Microsoft Word.

Import the tab-delimited file into Outlook.

I used a little utility called BlackBook to do this. The actuall method seems very similar to the technet article and involves loading the .crd file into BlackBook and then exporting into .csv (delimited file) edit this file in Excel, then you can import the .csv file into Outlook for syncro with the PDA.
It's not perfect but it's very simply and works well.
the url for Blackbook is http://www.netcom.com/~kenniget/blackbook/
only problem is that is appears to have used it's bandwidth for this month !!! so I do have a copy of the file if you would like me to email it to you, It's FREEWARE so no problem there.
