Transferring "MS Outlook Contact Data to my BB Torch 9800

I was told by the sales person to hook my phone up to my computer and  choose the "Sync" Option" and it would transfer my Outlook Contacts automatically...................Not so!


How do I transfer my "Contacts" from "Oulook" to my BB Torch 9800 phone?
