Outlook Contact Importing - A file error has occurred in comma separated

By jgreer ·

I am trying to import contacts from a users old office to ours. We are running MS Office 2000 Outlook. The files are CSV - I have even tried copying and pasting them into a new document with no progress. When I try and import into Outlook 2000 I receive an error: A file error has occurred in the comma seperated values (Windows) translater while initializing to build a field map. I even tried importing this on Outlook 2007 and had same problems. Online research references a fix for office 95. Anyone else had this issue?

Just for grins...

try this:
Open the CSV in Excel, make sure it is not password protected (if it is, get rid of that), save the file as an Excel file (.XLS) and then try to import it.

Lemme know if that works.

The above situation is over 3 years old. I am just wondering did someone come up with a solution yet? Any help would be appreciated.
