    Only one contact at a time from Outlook can be converted into a v card
    format. If you have a large contact list this process would be very

    I've noticed that there is software that you can purchase to handle
    multiple conversions simultaneously. Before I go ahead and spend $, am
    I missing anything obvious about a cost free method to accomplish the
    same thing?

    Trial software lets you convert approximately 5 contacts at a time, but
    that still would take quite awhile if you have a large list.

    Sperry does offer a trial version of a v card converter, so that I could try before I buy. However it only allows you to handle a few contacts at a time - which makes dealing with a large contact list very impractical.

    I do appreciate that you took the time to help - thanks :)!

    I think it would be worth 2 calls -

    One to a computer geek (maybe whomever fixes your puters) and ask them if they have any geek/freeware sites.

    Two - to Microsoft Outlook techs.

    You're welcome

    I have no earthly idea what that is! But my solution for everything is to go on and ask them! It's a forum where you can list your problems or questions and volunteer computer expert geek types come on and offer solutions. If one of them can't answer your question, nobody can! They're very helpful and it's free. They've helped me out a few times when I was ready to tear my hair out! You have to register first before you can access the forums, but they'll even send you a nice, cheerful email on your birthday!
