The problem is that you cannot export to Public Folders.  That is my dilemma
and I need a work around to this issue.

Import to a contacts database on your mailbox, then transfer all names to
public folders? Create a new contacts database under contacts, then remove
it after exporting to public folders so that you always have a blank
database ready to use.

Haven't had time to analyse this yet, but I can't see why that won't work!

Basically this is the situation:

Public folder contact list with custom fields that all users have access to.
One user is responsible for keeping this up to date.  They receive a file
with new agent names, numbers, and special fields.  We would like to be able
to import the contents of this file to the public folder contact list.  When
you choose file - import - from a file - the public folders are not listed
as an option to import to. That is what I am trying to get resolved.  Thanks
for your help.  Let me know if you can think of a way to do this without
excluding the public folder.
