Import an Outlook CSV file to Address Book
Authored by: MichelP on Sep 02, '05 10:53:13AM

Actually there is a simpler path, if you can still use the PC
1) Install Mozilla on the PC
2) Have it import Outlook's original Contact in PST format (or CSV)
3) Have then Mozilla export its new addressbook in LDIF format
4) Feed Mac Addressbook with this LDIF file

- This is a derivative tip, to a more general method to transfer complete Outlook mailboxes (not in LDIF, but to get to mbox) --although I prefer doing it through IMAP server
- if you have Entourage 2004, MS recently provided a tool to convert PC PST files to Entourage 2004 format. Once in Entourage, migrating to Addressbook should be pretty easy.

Good luck.
