How to Export Contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook

Lotus Notes and MS Outlook are widely used applications and it can be a challenging task to export contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook, however, don’t worry as we have discussed the manual method and a safe way to export contacts in this blog. As most of you already know, PST generates a ‘Personal Storage Table’, whereas Lotus Notes generates a ‘Notes Storage Facility’ where the users store their data. In this blog, we will guide our users to export Lotus Notes contact folders to Outlook format.

Export Contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook via the Manual Technique

The manual method involves two steps to export Contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook format so ensure that you follow each step cautiously as one wrong step can delete the entire data forever.

Export Contacts from Lotus Notes to CSV File

Make sure that you copy the contacts to a ‘.csv’ file. You simply need to copy the contacts from Lotus Notes and save them to a ‘CSV’ file. Follow the below steps to export Contacts from Lotus Notes to CSV file:

  • Start Lotus Notes on the system.
  • Double-click on the ‘Contacts’.
  • Now, Lotus Notes will open the ‘Address Book’.
  • Go to the ‘More’ options from the ‘Menu’ tab and choose the ‘Export Contacts’ tab.
  • Double-click on the ‘All contacts in this view’ tab.
  • Press on the ‘All Fields’ tab to export the details of the contacts.
  • Now, save the file and click on the ‘Save to’ tab and browse the files at the desired place.
  • Save the file as ‘CSV’ file.
  • Go to the ‘Export’ tab.

Import CSV File to Outlook

  • Launch Outlook and double-click on the ‘File Menu’ tab.
  • Choose the ‘Open and Export’ tab.
  • The ‘Import and Export Wizard’ option will be displayed on the screen.
  • Now, opt for the ‘Import from another program’ tab.
  • Double-click on the ‘Next’ tab.
  • Now, click on the ‘Comma Separated Values’ option.
  • Choose the ‘CSV file’ that you wish to export.
  • Click on the ‘Do not import duplicate items’ tab.
  • Now, choose the contact folders in the ‘Select Destination Folder’ tab.
  • Click on OK.

The above are the steps that will help the user to manually export contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook file format. This is not a safe approach to export contacts from Lotus Notes to Outlook so we strongly suggest that you avoid using the manual method as it is complicated and a tedious task.

Limitations of Using the Manual Method

  • By using the manual method, the user cannot import the contact image correctly.
  • There is a high possibility that the contact information will not match the original details.
  • An individual from a technical background can only use the manual method correctly.
  • If the contact folder is below 2 GB in size, then only the user can export the contact folder.
