Chief exports: Maneuvering Outlook contacts

From time to time, reasons arise for moving contacts out of Microsoft Outlook, whether those reasons are to export those contacts to a direct email marketing platform or to create mailing labels, or for whatever other motivation.

Should the need arise, this video provides step-by-step instructions on how to export your contacts from Outlook (2007). Through this operation, you'll be able to push your contacts (or subfolders of your contacts) to a number of different file formats. Most people choose to export to an Excel worksheet or to a CSV file, for ease of transfer into other programs/applications.

If you want to create address labels direct from your Outlook (2007) contacts list, you'll be kicked to Word to do it; and, here's the rundown on how that's accomplished.
