Importing a 2007 Contact list (.csv) Outlook 2003

I am trying to import an Excel 2007 .csv contact file into Outlook 2003 and it won't see the .csv file. Perhaps it is not recognising it?!?!?! Any ideas on how to do this would be much appreciated.

What happens if you right click and do an open with, then choose excel?

I can open the .csv file with Excel 2007.

You could try saving your Excel 2007 .csv file into '97 to '03 (compatible) format first.Perhaps it's like Word '03, and can't recognize the format of an '07 doc?

I opened the Excel 2007 .csv file and saved it as an 03 file format. But then it just becomes an .xls file and not a .csv file.

What happens if you change the file extension of the .xls to .csv? http://tinyurl.com/2sp5sl

Nope. Tried that. Get "An error has occured" when trying to import it into Outlook. Any other ideas?

If you open up the CSV file in Notepad does it look like a proper CSV (i.e. just a list of attributes separated by commas)?Or is it gibberish?
