Contacts Folder - HELP - 1000 points !

By rgilbert ·
We have a user using Outlook 2000 that has a Contacts Folder (Outlook default) and also a Contacts1 folder that was created at some point. They have been using the Contacts1 folder and it is the now most current ... we no longer need the info currently in the default Contact folder.

We want to have all the up-to-date info in the Contacts1 folder moved to default
Contacts folder (where it will sync with Palm, etc.) and remove the Contact1 folder.

What is the most efficent way of moving these contacts (1000+) to the default Contacts folder. It is imperative that there is no data loss.

I posted 1000 points hoping for a quick solution!

Thanks .. Ron

I would say use Outlook's Import/Export feature.

Click on Contacts1, click on File, Import\Export, export to a file of type *.pst.

Then click on the Contacts folder, click on File, Import/Export, and "Import from another program or file", select file type *.pst and point to the file you just exported.

That's pretty much it!

Two methods.
1, Go to Contacts1. Select all and drag or Copy/Paste into Contacts.
If the machine balks do it in 200 or so increments.
2) Export Contacts1 as a CSV, Excel, or what ever file and import it back to Contacts.

Thank you, but due to the size of the Contact list (1000+), the laptop would not copy all and it is too arduous to copy bits and pieces of the list.

A simpler answer: Delete all the info in the Contacts folder. Next, view the folder list and click on the Contacts1 folder. Use CTRL-A to select all the contacts. Next use CTRL-C to copy all the contacts to the clipboard. Finally, select the Contacts folder from the folder list, and use CTRL-V to paste the contacts there. Satisfied that they are all there, you can then right click on Contacts1 and delete the folder.
