Importing Contacts Does Not Use Defined Custom Form in Outlook 2007

In Outlook 2007 (connected to Exchange 2003), I have created a custom form

for contacts. I have set the "When Posting to this folder" setting to use

the custom form I created, and hitting the New button starts up a new

contact using the custom form. However, if I go through Import / Export and

bring in contacts from an Excel file, they are created using Outlook's

default form (IPM.Contact). I checked to make sure the Excel file had no

reference to a form type for each record... just basic name, address and

phone info. So how can I make the Import procedure post using the custom

form? Thanks for any advice!

Outlook does not support importing to a custom form, nor importing custom

fields. You would need to write your own import code or use a third-party

tool. See http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=23
