Exporting Z10 contacts to the Outlook cloud

I have 1,000+ contacts on my Z10 that came from a PC and an old BB that, because of a hard drive failure and being lost in a move respectively, are no longer available. I want to export these legacy contacts to the MS Outlook server since the Z10 with 10.1 will not sync them directly. BB Link promised to find a solution, but 1.1 will still only sync PC to device. BB OS Today's 10.1 has not helped either. The third party program MagicBerry generates a .vcf file, but Outllook wants a .cvs file.

 

Barring waiting for months for the promised BB Link update, is there any solution?

 

Thank you!

Thanks, I'll give that a try with Win7 instead of Vista.

No, Never tried it but there are multiple ways of manipulating data. if that doesn't work there are lots of ways to convert the file to csv so you can import it into outlook. Just remember to make a backup copy of the file first so you have somethng to go back to is the file gets corrupt.
