When I try to import my MS Outlook contacts to Open Contacts it gives me the following message: EIntcastError – Interface not supported While importing from outlook
How do I solve this problem and import my contacts?
Do you have any solutions / suggestions for sharing the contact data over the net? I like to synchronize my info at one source and have it accessible from any computer (Google contacts or Yahoo Addressbook for example).
Currently you may use CSV for importing/exporting data with Google contacts and Yahoo addressbook, while we do have plan to sync. with them, however, it is up to them to decide whether to provide on-line sync interfaces with Open Contacts. Open Contacts does support vCard and SyncML for synchronizing with other address books and devices, so in long run, better supports for sync can be done, but not with Fonlow alone. As a customer, you may suggest Google and Yahoo to provide better sync interfaces.
I tried to make more sections than whats showing in the window but no links appears..
OK. I just uploaded v18.104.22.1680, which fixed some issues found by you. I also improve the importing of vCard, so the fields created from vCard and other data sources will also be translated as well. Please find the attached PO file which contain a bit more new strings, mostly for vCard importing. You may merge this PO file with your translated PO file, just make sure you backup the translated one first.
In folder "Templates", there is file "ExportVCard.xml" for exporting records to vCard files. This XML file defines the mapping from Open Contact data fields to vCard data fields. The translation is straightforward generally, and you should pay more attention to these two lines:
You may translate the section name, but leave a="map" alone. Open Contacts supports single-line address and multi-line address. So Open Contacts will just organize address fields of the "map" action type.
Hi,Though vCard standard supports multiple vCard in one file, so far most main stream PIM programs support one vcard per file, as mentioned in the hint.
Very good application! Thanks for sharing it!
There is an useful option in the app Open Contacts v22.214.171.1247
Option: Import/Export -> Exporting to vCard -> Multiple contacts in one vCard file
Possible Bug: The app freezes when importing a vCard file with multiple contacts in one vCard file.
Can you verify it?
Is it easy to implement/repair?
You are not suppose to import vCard files exported by OC. Nevertheless, I will make OC to abort when getting such vCard file safely.

Support,If your contacts are in an Excel files, save them to CSV first. The create a mapping file in XML to map CSV fields to Open Contacts fields, then import the CSV with the mapping. Please read the manual for detail. Though the job is not easy, this is just one-off.
I love the idea of your program but am having difficulty in importing contact information from excel. Do I import persons first then re-import companies?
The links to my email client and skype are wonderful but I need my import to work.
What detailed information would you like? I am running XP Home, Office 2003.
