Hi there. Using Outlook 2013/Office365/Win 7 on a Macbook Pro running Boot Camp.

I've created a custom Outlook contact form to store my data. I recently switched to Outlook 2013. I just tried to import Excel contact data into Outlook forms but all my new Outlook forms are the default Outlook form, not my custom form.

I check the folder properties to make sure it knows to post to that folder using my custom form, and that setting was already live before my import, so I'm assuming that's not the issue. I also tried to use this DocMessageClass program I found years ago to convert the forms to my custom form, but it gives me an error 0x80004005. Maybe it's not compatible with Outlook 2013?

Thanks in advance.

How exactly are you performing the import? Standard Outlook import doesn't support custom forms so you would need to adjust the sample code I referenced to create a new contact item using the message class of the custom form.

As for DocMsgCls - works here using 32bit '2013 so suspect the error may be related to the fact that you're using '64 bit Outlook or something related to Mac Pro/Boot Camp
