Hi,

I recently changed jobs and where I used to work was using Lotus Notes where as my new employer uses Outlook.

How can I import my Lotus Notes address book (over 650 entries) into Outlook?

I have the names.nsf file from Lotus but do not have Notes installed on my new computer with Outlook.

Is there a procedure/utility/freeware that would help me do this?

You would save my life as I do not wish to reenter all these addresses manually!!!

Thanks for your help it is greatly appreciated!

It's been a while since I've had to do this.

I'm using Notes 6 right now. I just went into my address book and I went under File > Export. It gave me the option to export in Lotus 123, Tabular Text, Structured Text, and two VCard formats. I would export in the latest VCard format onto a place on your hard drive where you'll find your information again. Try making a folder called OUTLOOKEXPORT or something like that on your desktop or C:\

Also, do a search on your drives for a file called "names.nsf" and copy it to your export folder as well. Notes stores address book data in that file.

Calendar export options were all the above minus the VCard formats. I would try exporting in all of them to different files. Make sure the file names are meaningful, like "Calendar_Tabular" or "Calendar_Structured".

Put your folder with all your files on a USB drive.

Outlook has an import feature that will get your data in one way or another. It doesn't hurt to have all your Notes information in a few different formats just in case Outlook won't import from one of them.
