Solved: Excel 2013 Contacts DB

Q: Solved: Excel 2013 Contacts DB

Im in the process to make an Excel (2013) contacts address workbook and have all my contacts in Excel now. I would also like to have some kind of a V-card to be able to input new contacts and view existing ones. A typical V-card could be like the one I downloaded from here


I can make my own V-card but the problem I have is how to integrate the V-card to interact with the contacts database I now have.

Anyone can give me some help or perhaps provide an existing template?

I have been using Excel 2011 (Mac), but when I try to save or copy worksheets over to Excel 2013 onto my PC the sheet layout changes. Not only do I need to adjust the row height and column widths afterwards, but the zoom level too. All this I find time consuming when I have a number of worksheets.

I understand you can save to an older Excel version, but how do I save from 2011 to the latest 2013.

I am using Outlook & Excel 2007. Trying to import contacts from Excel.

I've imported several times with different results and finally figured out the "name the range" rule and to save the Excel worksheet in the 97-2003 format. I also selected 'Do not enter duplicates" and then mapped out the entries.

I tried this last time using a dummy list of 10 fictional entries which included columns for first name, last name, email, address1, address1, city, state and zip.

After importing, I had 10 contact with just the first names, an additional 10 contacts with just last names, another 10 with just email addresses, etc. I don't understand why it would think that each column was a different set of contacts.....

I would GREATLY appreciate your help.

Also - I am practicing on my system so I can help a client import a huge 500+ list into her email program. She is on Windows Vista with Windows Mail. Any suggestions on how the process will be different on those systems/programs??

Hi, I am looking for a macro to import contacts from excel. We are a team of 25 who all use the same contact list (which contains addresses, organisation name, tel numbers, emails, contact names etc for approx 600 organisations). We regularly have to bcc all these contacts in emails. We previously all held the distribution lists (sorted alphabetically by email) and had to let the rest of the team know when details changed. The problem with this was that the distribution lists do not hold all the information needed (e.g. addresses, organisation names) and contact information was not always updated as it should have been. I would like to create the macro for all the team so that they can periodicaly update their contacts. I trust this makes sense

when exporting as a csv file you have to map custom fields first and take the email 1 address and move it into the other side for the addresses to get in there (from left to right) or the email addresses will not go correctly into the computer you want to do it to. If you back it up with *.pst then everything goes in much easiwer

When you receive? Are you sure? IIRC, it only creates contacts using the email addresses you send email to. Of course that means if you forwarded an email that had 1,000 email addresses in it, all 1,000 of those email addresses would be added to your contacts.

I can't believe I can't find the answer to this dilemma, which I've tried to solve for years. Hoping someone might have some insights. I have my own business, and keep a Contacts table in Access 2013. I also have a Contacts folder in Outlook 2013 that I want to keep in sync with my database. Sometimes changes are made in Outlook (or using GSyncit to sync with Google on my phone or tablet) and sometimes when entering service calls in Access. When I go to created a "linked table" from Outlook to Access, I get a separate table of contacts that will not sync with my existing table. Every week, I have to literally export Access data to an Excel CSV and import into Outlook, then go through name by name to choose the latest entry to keep. Ridiculous! I've googled and googled, and I have found no joy. Any ideas??

I have been scratching my head and searching everywhere, but I seem to have only questions and no answers to this one. I have a business where I keep all my clients in an Access 2013 database. The tables and queries include all contact information, and I also enter dates when I have had appointments with each client along with details of our sessions. Each week (or whenever I get around to it) I must do several things:
update all contact info in Access and export the data to a folder in my Outlook Contacts
enter dates from my Outlook Calendar into the Services table (via a form) and fill in details
export updated Contacts from Access to Excel to upload into my Enewsletter program to email newsletters to clients
make sure my Outlook contact info is syncing correctly with my Samsung Galaxy (I use gsyncit, the best app I've found for this)
refer to my contacts on the phone to get addresses as I am on my way to each client's house or business

Quite a pain, right? If only I could set up a system where any new changes to contact info made EITHER from Outlook OR from Access automatically synchronize AND the address info is included in my Outlook Calendar entry for the person AND a service entry is entered in my Access database for that call, wouldn't my life be easier?! Isn't this why I have Office 365 in the first place? And most importantly, why can't I figure out how to get this done??

Win 7 with Outlook 2013 installed. Working as client to MS server
We have a shared contacts file for everyone in the building (10 clients) called "AMAG Contacts"

My Contacts (now called People in O-2013)
Opens to my personal contacts (no prob). Not AMAG Contacts, but I can click on AMAG Contacts and open it OK. New emails default to the AMAG contacts OK. this Q is for whan I am opening the Contacts list.
When I click on AMAG Contacts it has a list of pictures and names.

When I open AMAG Contacts I can click >View>Change view>By Category (or whatever??)
BUT neither AMAG Contacts nor my view change is persistent. I want the changed view to be persistent across closing O2013 and reopening it

1. Is there a way to default to AMAG contacts when opening contacts?
2. Is there a way to make my view of choice persistent? I like the Category view.

I cannot find any dialog that allows me to do the above.
Several others in the building have asked the same question and I think the older versions are more straightforward and controllable.
Can this be done? I perused Outlook options and saw nothing there either.
Pls advise
Thank you

I have Outlook 2013 through Office 365 and liked it until I tried to import my contacts. It's a CSV file from Windows Live Mail. Unfortunately Outlook absolutely refuses to import my contacts properly. I get everyone's names but NO EMAIL ADDRESSES! Totally and completely useless. I have tried everything and Outlook just insists on ignoring the email field. I am beginning to hate that I pay $9 for this crap. It shouldn't be hard to import contacts!!! I tried to delete all the ones that had been imported since they are useless to me and of course Outlook refuses to let me do that too. I can't find the folder anywhere and it won't let me delete all. If I sound angry I am...I am frustrated and don't have time for this. I need my COMPLETE contacts. Why is it refusing to do something so simple? When I open the CSV file in Excel everything is there including emails, so it's not me messing up or the file. Help??

I am having the exact same problem as in the post "Solved: Can't find Access Query when using Word mail merge." I am using Office 365 so I have the newest versions of both Word and Access.

When I try to mail merge starting with Access (right click the query and export to word merge), it tells me it "Could not find file 'C:\Users\Jeanne\Documents\My Data Sources.mdb'" I have a folder called My Data Sources. And yes, the database I want it to go to is in that folder. Of course the folder doesn't have a .mdb after it. What file is it looking for and why? The Access database ends in .accdb. I found some hint somewhere that that might be a problem, but I can't find how to fix it.

When I start the merge from Word, it finds the database fine, but only tables are listed. The link mentioned in the other post is broken, so I can't check that out.

I feel like I'm saying to my son "I'll see you at home" and he says "I can't find the dog." What dog? We don't have a dog, and I never said anything about a dog!!!

Running Windows 8.1 and Office 2013. Have a Canon 4370dw Laser Printer connected to my desktop via USB. Have a Brother MFC-J475dw inkjet connected wirelessly to the network. Default printer is the Canon. Here's the problem:

Word - In print dialogue, I can choose to print from either the Brother or Canon with no issues
Notepad - Same. Can choose whichever printer I like
Excel - Can see the Brother printer and it's online. When I click the Brother printer to select it, the Canon stays selected. It simply won't switch to the Brother although the printer dialogue box appears exactly the same in Excel as it does in Word.

Have run printer troubleshooting. Have re-installed Brother drivers and software. Have searched the web for a solution or someone that has had same problem. No luck. Any suggestions on what I can try next or what the problem might be? I'm surprised since I'm assuming that Word and Excel use the same printing module / dll.
