Importing Excel directly into a new Outlook Dist List Using Outlook 2007...

Q: Importing Excel directly into a new Outlook Dist List Using Outlook 2007...

From earlier posts a solution was offered to this problem (see below). After executing these instructions I received an error (also below).The "debug" option highlighted the code line: objRecipients.Add (Range("C" & i).Value).

Your suggestions for a fix would be greatly appreciated.


Open the Excel workbook containing the list of records. Make sure the first record is on line 1. Press ALT + F11 to open the VBA editor and then click TOOLS --> REFERENCES and set reference to Microsoft Outlook and then click OK. Next, in the VBA editor, click INSERT --> MODULE and copy and paste the code below into the blank module. Close the VBA editor, save the workbook and run the code by clicking TOOLS --> MACROS and then selecting the macro "DistributionList" When the distribution list comes up you can manually save it.


Error message: There must be at least one name or distribution list in the TO, CC, or BCC box.

Using Outlook 2007...

This is a project for work. Our marcomms lady has an Outlook email contact list of over 2000 contacts, and these are put into various business distribution lists (by country, by business type etc)...

An new campaign has started and we are about to add another 1300 new contacts and these come from a business application that exports to CSV format. Using Excel, I have created a "Named Range" and can import them with no difficulty into my own Outlook Contact's list as individual contacts. This was where I spotted the problem.

In the case of our marcomms lady with over 2000 existing contacts, if we import another 1300 from Excel, she will then have to trawl through 3300 contacts to find the one's she has imported and then create a distribution list for them, in line with her project. In fact this is what she has done for the past 18 months!! Nightmare!!

So, I want to find a way to import from Excel DIRECTLY into a new or exsiting distribution list in Outlook.

Outlook gives me no view of distribution lists in my contacts area, so does anyone know how to do this?

Have been trying to follow suggestions from similar posts, but nothing working. Have tried to save as .xls and .csv, as well as trying to 'define names' of the various columns, but nothing allows me to import complete contact into Outlook. Please help, very important to get these contacts into Outlook asap. Thank you

A:Issues importing large contact list in Excel 2007 to Outlook 2007

Hi hbsurfer

Try going about it backwards.
Create one Contact in Outlook 2007, then Export that one Contact to a .csv file.
Then you will be able to see the format Outlook 2007 is using and reconfigure your headers in the Excel spreadsheet.
When all headers match, you should be able to Import it. Or copy the excel information to the one contact .csv file and Import that.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

I recently deleted my colleague's distribution list. Fortunately I have another colleague who has the same distribution list on her PC . It is the same outlook 2007 on both PC . I followed the usual way of exporting and importing the csv file in both window and csv format . But I am still not able to get the distribution list on the deleted desktop ? What is the possible issue here ?


A:Importing Distribution list from Outlook 2007 to outlook 2007

The only advise I have is to give you incite into the cvs file.

It is the equivalent of a XML markup, but a file a programmer likes to deal with better. It's laid out in what is known as comma delimited formatting. That means, when the file is being read by a program, it stops at the comma's. Everything before the comma is the current entry. Everything after the comma is the next entry, and before etc. The read stops when no more commas are found, and the last entry is taken.

Comma delimited format should allow for the cross platform exchange. If it doesn't try using the XML format instead.

Hope I helped.

PC #1: Win98, Office XP, MS Mail.
PC #2: WinXP, Office XP, MS Mail.

User on PC #1 has a distribution list with about 8 MS Mail (interoffice, not internet) email addresses, including PC #2. All other emails go through; one will be returned as undeliverable - the one for PC #2.

I tried to duplicate the problem on my pc, but it all goes through.

If user on PC #1 sends an email to PC #2, not using a distribution list, it will go through, even if he sends it to a bunch of people.

I don't know if this matters, but there are two internet email addresses on this distribution list - most of it is interoffice email via MS Mail.

Windows & Office have all their updates & patches.

Anyone ever encounter this trippy thing? Any ideas of what to do?

I would like to have the people on my distribution list see only the name of the distribution list in the "To:" field of the e-mail I've sent, rather than the names of all 25 members in the dist list. I'm aware of using the BCC method, but am wondering if there is a better way.

I think this is only possible if you are using a MS Exchange Server distribution list that was set up as 'Hide Distribution List Membership'.

I don't think you can do it with your local distribution list.

I am using Office 2007

WHen I send and email it gets sent immediately and shows in the Sent box. Even if it is a very large email it immediately shows sent/receive complete in the Progress window, and I can close Outlook.

The problem is that the email has not actually completely been sent. It is being sent and takes a few minutes for a large attachment as my upload speed is only 256 kbps.

If I disconnect the Net once it shows in the Sent folder the mail sending is incomplete if it is a large mail and is never received at the other end.

I am using Outlok 2003 on a different PC an there it does not go from Outbox to the Sent folder until the email is sent out of the computer.

Basically the problem I am facing is that Outlook 2007 puts the mail in the Sent box and I am never sure when to turn off my PC, as I cannot be sure that the mail sending has finished.

Never had this problem before.

The 2003 contacts contain sub folders that we imported to 2007 as a .pst file through the import function.

I am having an issue sending attachments directly from any application outside of Outlook. Example: I try to send an excel spreadsheet from excel using the send to option in the file menu. When I do, it loads up outlook and attaches the excel file to a new message. When I hit send to send the message after addressing it, it does nothing. No errors, just nothing. Here is what is wierd. I can hit the save icon and it will save the message in my inbox. If I go to my inbox, select the message and hit forward, it comes up completely addressed as I had done earlier. I click send and it goes.
It's a minor irritation but, I would like to find out why I can send an attachment from a external app without going through these extra steps. I have tried it with Word 2003, Excel 2003, IE7 and a few other apps, same results.

Thank you in advance for your help in resolving my issue.

The address are NOT really in the nk2 file, that is just a temp list of the ones that you have typed into an email address pane.
As far as I know they can NOT be import into another version.

You need to make sure that you them in your "Contacts", and then as you use them they should appear in your drop down list as you type in a address in the email address pane.

Whenever I import e-mails from Excel to Outlook they appear to have transfered without error. However, the e-mails have lost the "link" When I open up the Contact in the Outlook Address book, the e-mailed is underlined and appears to work but it won't send. I can solve this by going in and placing the cursor at the end of the e-mail address and clicking on enter and then saving the contact. However, this is a real annoyance.

I don't do this very often, but I have do have the occassional client that drops AOL and wants me to set everything up to Outlook. When there are 200 names it is just a waste of time.

I'm ready to pull my hair out over this, I just started working as the tech guy at this law firm and out of all the incredibly difficult things I fell really accomplished for solving... this thwarts me.

I have a list of like 1200 names and something along the lines of 20 different columns of information for each name (i.e. last name, first name, client ID, home phone, etc.) which I am switching from this archaic program they were using into outlook. To do so I copied the dBase file to Excel XP and asked the paper clip how to import it to Outlook (in case you couldn't tell before how desperate I am, now you know) and he said:

Name each column of information you want to send
Go to Outlook and hit File>import
Chose program, then file
Select location in address book (i.e. Contacts)
Drag each named column into whichever section in the contacts list I want.
Here it also says that if I want to add a section I can click a button for it, but I don't have that button either (this is XP pro)

And then it should all be okay, so to try it out I loaded a names column into "Name" and the corresponding e-mail addresses into "e-mail", and all I got was the field "display name" showing the e-mail addresses as well as the "e-mail address" section displaying the e-mail addresses.

So I figured I was just doing something stupid, and I just took the whole dBase file to Excel and then just tried to import without mapping the location of e... Read more

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 am trying to get way from the nightmare of Windows Live Mail 2011, mostly due to two bugs that are still in the latest version of the program.

I'm trying to migrate from WLM2011 to Outlook 2003 and I have run into a brick wall on importing my email accounts. Microsoft has extensive help pages on migrating TO Windows Live Mail, but apparently they do't think anyone would ever want to go FROM Windows Live Mail.

There is a good article at Migrate from Outlook Express or Windows (Live) Mail to Outlook | HowTo-Outlook which covers migrating the messages and contacts, but no one seems to have found any way to get your account data from WLM into Outlook. WLM will export the account data as iaf files (just like Outlook Express did) but Outlook doesn't recognize the iaf files.

I found a couple of old Outlook help pages that talk about importing IAF files, but the procedure shown does not work because Outlook doesn't ever give you any chance to tell it where to look for the IAF files, it just says "No internet accounts were found to import"

Hi there,
I apologise if this has been covered before. I am planning on importing a large number of contacts from excel to outlook (both 2003).
Because there are so many contacts I want to be able to categorize them beyond the default categories provided in outlook (company, job title etc) so that I can then sort them alphabetically, ctrl+shift those of the desired category and send out emails. E.g. say I want to add the category favourite pizza, and then I may want to sort the contacts to email everyone whose favourite pizza is (say) vegeterian.
I have found two ways to add additional categories:
1) via the user-defined fields (text based)
2) Add an additional category to the master list (yes or no)
1) I have not found a way to map these details to those in outlook, i.e. when trying to map I can't find the user-defined categories list anywhere (?)
2) this DOES map but you "can't sort by categories" when looking at a phone-list view of contacts. It is also possibly prone to error as all the information is not under the same heading (e.g. favourite pizza vs listing a number of different pizzas)
I don't think I explained that very well... but if it makes sense to anyone please help!
Thanks very much

A:Problems importing contacts from Excel to Outlook in Office 2003

Please post a sample XLS file without personalised data

Read other 2 answers

To begin with, I just want to check if this is viable, and if so, which solution is best/easiest...

Office 2010.

Current situation:
An Outlook rule moves certain messages to an Outlook folder.
A macro button is used to run code that prints the attachments of all messages in that folder.
Think it then deletes the messages.

Required situation:
Instead of printing all attatchments, the macro needs to look at a specific column of data in an Excel file.
If a value in the Excel column matches (or part matches) the filename of the attachment, the attachment is printed.
All attachments with filenames that do not match the Excel list are left alone.

Alternatively, switch it round, so the macro is in the Excel file, and it checks the values in the column against the attachment filenames of messages in that Outlook directory, and prints those that match.

Alternatively, write something in Outlook code, perhaps using a form control, whereby the user can enter (paste in) the batch of values, and it then prints attachments accordingly, rather than trying to forge a link between Excel and Outlook.

Alternatively... use some 3rd party tool that accepts the batch of values and interacts with Outlook to print the attachments, bypassing the need to write and manage code.

Or something else?


A:Outlook/Excel - Print selected attachments based on Excel list

Alternatively... modify the existing Outlook macro to save all attachments to a dir on the PC instead of print, and then write an Excel macro to check the files in the dir instead of the Outlook folder.

I have to sort out a huge base of about 2500 contacts infortunatelly in excel

The data is entered in a sloppy way ... you got writen comments next to mobile numbers, mixed Greek and English languages, full text Addresses (Not separated in Street, Region, Country etc), and any other stupidity you can immagine.

Nevertheless I managed to import this mess on to Outlook 2003 (the standard way - put headers in the excell according to Outlook requirements (LastName, FirstName etc) selected the data area (all data columns) and inserted a name for it. When mapping fields in the outlook import interface I decided to map the full text addresses column as Notes (full text supported)

All went fine (after several tries though) and imported this huge list of contacts.

THE PROBLEM: there is data missing randomly in over 50% of the contacts.
Some Contacts are without "BusinessPhone" numbers, others without MobilePhone and so on...

I cant figure out what is going on since every time I import the Contacts (tried many times to find some paterns) there seem to be different data missing ... even though Greek fonts (that I feared would be an issue)
are imported properly (Unicode Supported)

Could it be that the Outlook refuses to import some data because the formating in the excel sheet does not correspond to what it expects to receive ?

Is there any particular formating that has to be applied to the ecxel sheet or cells for the data to be properly imported?

The list seem to send fine although the outbox folder showed the email still sending. I then received an email from a person on the list that he had received the email 11 times. I then open the outbox folder and deleted the email with the distribution list. The same gentleman send me another email that he had received another 4 copies of the email. What can I do to make sure that this doesn't happen again? What did happen? I have Windows 7 64-bit with outlook 2007. thank you for your help.Click to expand...

You might have him in the contact list in multiple places. This is often common when users are members of multiple groups in the same contact list. Thats why he's the only one that complained he received it multiple times. Chances are his email appears there by itself, then as part of a group, and yet as part of another group.

To resolve this you would have to remove all groups in the contact list. Verify that the individual emails appearing in the list are unique, remove the guys emails from the groups it appears in, and then re-add the groups back to the contact list. Please try this and post with feedback. Thanks

I just recently switched to Outlook 2007. The program was used by another user so it had distribution lists already in it. I updated one of the lists by deleting some names and adding others but now when I send an email and put in the name of the distrubution list and then click on the + it shows the names I deleted and none of the names I added. When I look at the distrubition list under contacts it shows the correct list of names.

I've tried deleting the list and recreating it but still get the old list. What should I do?

A distribution List was deleted by accident.

The distribution List was manually rebuilt, using the same name as before.

When clicking on the TO/CC/BCC fields to display the selection box of addresses, the newly rebuilt list DOES NOT appear. However, the AUTOCOMPLETE option will find the list. From what I understand, AUTOCOMPLETE is probably finding the OLD version (which happens to have the right addresses).

The difficulty is that many emails are sent to multiple Lists, and this one doesn't appear in the selection box to choose along with several others for a particular email.

It's a wierd issue , let me try to explain what happens.
I have distribution lists in Outlook 2007. It might contain some 15 names inside it. When I make an email and want to send it to this distribution list and hit the send button, the distrubution list dissapears and all left there are a bunch of semicolons (the normal separator between email addresses). The message of course doesn't go out since there's nobody in the email address, but doesn't give an error or anything.
Do anybody know what I can do?
Just to give a little more data, this will happen with any distribution list, even new ones that I create, and if I just put all the names in the distrubution list individually in the To:, it will work fine and send the message.

Yep, no matter what I do or try, all the mail for my Inbox goes straight into Junk Mail.

I have triple checked all the account, junk mail and security settings and they all appear OK.

Even when I mark one of these as "Safe", next time straight back to the Junk Mail.

I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!
