4. Exporting Pegasus Address book
Select a location and filename for your addressbook, using the filename extension ".txt",
like in the image above (Figure 6, Choose filename and location). Then click the
Save button to complete the export.
You will now need to edit the exported file slightly so that other programs will
recognise it. Open the file in a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice
Calc. To open the file you will need to start the spreadsheet program, choose
[File/Open], and then tell it to look for files of any type (
Type: All files (*.*) in Excel). The following instructions are based on
Microsoft Excel, but the same principles are applicable to other spreadsheet programs such
as OpenOffice Calc.
Now delete the contents of the first line, which contains the text
* Pegasus Mail
Addressbook and the date and time of the export. Instead, enter the column
headings: Name, E-mail, Keywords, Department, Primary Phone, Business Fax, Home Address,
Other Address, Notes. If you use these exact labels then Outlook should import all your
data. Otherwise, you may lose some of the information stored in Pegasus.
Once you have finished, the file should look something like Figure 10, Converted file. Now you need to save it as a comma-separated values file. Choose
[File/Save As...] and select a location for the file.
