Import contacts into Outlook from the command line RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I'm looking for a program that can be started from the command line (ideally an .exe file) which imports contacts into Outlook. 
    The file to be imported can be a txt, csv or even xml file. 
    I can imagine a command like: ImportContactsIntoOutlook.exe <Outlook account> <import file>.
    Thanks for your help

  • First and foremost - any issues related to any CG product should be sent to cgsupport @ contactgenie.com - this forum is not the appropriate support venue.

    That said - the message you included indicates that no profile has been configured for Outlook. At least one profile must be configured to allow retrieving the appropriate set of folders for the account(s) to which those would apply. Any follow-up specific to CG should be sent to the email address indicated if required (and please indicate the specific CG program is being used).
