what is the easiest and safest way to migrate KA/PI address book data to Outlook 2003?

I have tried CSV export from KA/PI, heavily modified the resulting file in a text editor removing newlines from notes etc., then imported into Excel, saved as Excel sheet, then tried to import the Excel file into Outlook. The last step crashes Outlook!

When I export another CSV from Excel and try to import the CSV into Outlook, the fields are not recognized. All data is redognized to be in the first column (as if one opens a CSV file in Excel via the "file open" menu instead of "Data / Import"...

Is there another way?

I have 450 contacts in my database and have used a lot of the more common fields (home/work addres/phone, company/role information, birthday etc.

Is synchronizing via Sharp DTM safe (i.e. can I be sure that no data is lost or assigned to Outlook fields in a wrong way)? unsure.gif

Thanks a lot
