Hi. When using Import to install CSV addressbook from previous office

versions error message INVALID SAM ID appears. Internet search brings no

answer. Microsoft Office, 2010, Technet all the sites have no answer. How do

I import my addressbook in to Outlook 2010 beta? Thanks.

Since Outlook does not even have an address book, one must wonder what you

are trying to do and how.

Why would you change the format of your Outlook data?

Why not use a valid method for data transfer?

All things aside, an addressbook is not installed via any kind of "import"

just

to clarify terminology (you would however import contact info into a

contact

folder which can be added to the Outlook AddressBook)

Hi. I have exported my addressbook in CSV format and imported it in to every

office version so far except 2010. Why does it have the Import facility if it

doesn't Import? An internet search about INVALID SAM ID just says to do the

same as I have already stated putting me in a loop! Are you saying that i

have to create a folder called Contacts before it will allow the import? If

thats the case why has it changed after all these versions and years to be so

damned awkward, sometimes if it's not broken don't fix it - leave it alone!

Do I now have to transfer each individual contact seperately to each field?

Why would you do that? That has never been a valid or supported method for

Outlook data transfer. There isn't even an address book in Outlook you could

export.

Use the valid, supported methods for data transfer that you should have been

using all along and that are documented here daily.

The file you need is your Personal Folders file (*.pst) It's where all the

mail, calendar, contacts etc are stored.

Take a look at these pages for info on Outlook data backup or transfer:

Re: "Hi. I have exported my addressbook in CSV format and imported it in to

every

Perhaps you could share exactly what you selected with the "precise" steps

you

followed to accomplish the above. Having a little familiarity with the

topic of

contact import/export as it relates to Outlook - a little unclear about the

above

description since there is no facility to "import/export" an "addressbook"

that

I'm aware of (and the import/export functionality hasn't changed between

any version of Outlook since O'2000 - or perhaps even since O'98). Only

difference in O'2010 is import/export functionality is not located in the

most

intuitive location but beyond that - hasn't changed in terms of

capabilities).

The above request is neither a challenge nor a criticism - purely a request

to

"standardize/normalize" the terminology used so that everyone reading this

is working from the same page of understanding - the first step to

resolving

anything.
