Question How can I export BB contacts into Outlook?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Blackberry gurus, I'm afraid I've made a mess. I've been trying and trying to get Outlook 2003 (which has tons of outdated contacts) to properly sync with my BB 8300 (whose contacts are nicely updated), but the result was only that the BB kept trying to take in all of the outdated contacts from Outlook!

Because my BB has all of the contacts I want, and I had run out of things to try, I just went into Outlook and DELETED every single contact there, thinking that I'd just use the "Export" function in Synchronize and re-populate Outlook with all of my correct BB contact entries. And we'd live happily ever after.

Unfortunately, even when I chose "Export" rather than "Synchronize," my Outlook would only accept the 6 records that I had changed since my last effort to sync (yesterday). So now my entire Outlook contacts list has only six records, instead of over 900! I've searched all over the web for an answer. If I could figure out how to export my Blackberry backup files into Excel, then I could import them back into Outlook, but I can't find a way to do that either. Nothing seems to recognize the BB backup files.

Help! (and Thanks!)
