I am trying to do this for a colleague here at work, he has a large Excel document with all his contacts, individuals, and email addresses. We run into this error (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/error21240438035.bmp)

what are we doing wrong?

Ask him, if he's heard of Google

Are there titles at the top of each column?

Sigh.

There are two methods both of which are contained in Speedy Gonzales post.
Both work when I looked at it here. Step by step instructions.

What more do you want?

I always use a excel .csv format as it imports and exports nicely into outlook and gmail
