View Full Version : Importing Addresses



07-10-2001, 04:49 PM
I am doing some work for a large club that I belong to andneed to add a block of about 400 member addresses to my Internet Explorer address book. I read in the help that this can be done using a comma delineated text file. I have scanned the adresses as a text file and am currently cleaning and sorting it into a comma delineated text file which I will import into Dbase. This will let me export it in the field order which can be accepted by Address Book. My problem is;
What order should the fields be in for address book?
Not so much of a problem but it would be helpful if I can keep these addresses separate from my day to day addresses so that I can make bulk mailings.

regarding the sequence, maybe just try one to get the field order right.
For keeping them seperate you could either create a mail group so sending to group would send them all alternatively you could put a asterisk or something similar in the name field so ordering the address list by name would seperate the list from your other contacts/addresses.
Hope this helps.
