Importing contacts

  Asked By: Eve    Date: Sep 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1445

I want to import a list of contacts. I can put the contacts into a spreadsheet
and import the spreadsheet by Create\Custom List\Import Spreadsheet. However,
that does not give me the 'Connect to Outlook' option. Is there a way to create
a contact list and import a spreadsheet, or add a 'Connect to Outlook' to a
custom list?

Create the contacts  list from the list  template, then use DataSheet view
in the new list to copy-and-paste the contacts from the original
spreadsheet into the list. You must use the contact  list template to
get the "Connect to Outlook" option  - other list templates (including
custom) do not include it as you've seen.

I have the contact list  in Outlook and Sharepoint synchronizing fine.
However, custom fields in Sharepoint are not brought into Outlook.
"Custom1" field in WSS contact  list does not map to
"Custom1" field in Outlook contact list.

Is there a way to do this?
