For the last few years I have used the Outlook Contact manager and have synchronized to my Blackberry every week. Apart from the limit on the size of the Notes field this has worked perfectly.
I have now stopped using Outlook and wish to use the ASCII importer to import data from a CSV file. Both Contacts and Calendar.
I have two problems -
a) The ASCII Importer ignores the field names in the CSV file; it does however skip the first record in the file. It sets up a synthetic mapping to fields that do not exist in my CSV file (which came from Outlook).
b) It skips records with a blank Last Name; I often do not have a named contact, just data on a company.
I have used Intellisync for years with other devices and am perplexed as its ability to process ASCII files in CSV format is usually very good.
