Question Uploading Contacts from XLS on computer to phone?

Please Login to Remove!

I don't use Outlook and have MANY contacts that I've pulled from my company's information system that would be very helpful to have in my Curve. Is there a program that will take a spreadsheet and load the contacts onto my phone?
Thx!

Nope, you need to use an Outlook type program, you could use Yahoo or Google.

Yep, Desktop Manager will import via the Sync app a CSV file. Save your xls sheet as such.

Check out the ASCII importer/exporter in Desktop Manager...

Isn't the ascii loader the CSV format?

Am I just changing the file name from .xls to .csv? That didn't work. Sorry, I'm totally new to Blackberry and still obviously trying to figure things out.
Thanks.

Negative, do a "save as" from your File menu within Excel and select "CSV." This will strip the Excel formatting from the file, and separate each field within the record with a comma.

^^ Do as CO said.

In excel... File > Save as > use scroll down file type box and select CSV.
