Hi,
I have imported a CSV file succesfully to my address book

The problem I have is that it automatically puts it in the "ALL" directory, when I would like to put into a specific directory within the address book that i have created for those specific files.

How can I import it to a specific file please?? Not the All file.

Any help would be great..

David

"All Contacts" is just that... All Contacts. There is no way that I am aware of to keep a contact from appearing in All Contacts.

If you want a contact in a particular "Group", navigate to the contact and drag their name to the group you want them to be a member of.

I have not really investigated if there is a way to put it into the group you want during import or not, but even if so, it is still going to be in your 'All Contacts' group.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Hi Thank you for the response.

Happy for them to appear in all contacts, but need to be seperated when emailing.
The reason is because the Data I am importing is Purchased.

I want to keep that list seperate from other lists I hold.

I could do it manually but there is over 1000 contacts

Thanks Bob

Ok. after you import them, you will have a new group called 'Last Import'.

Select that group on the left side. You can then select them in the right pane and drag and drop all of those contacts in one fell swoop into the group you want.
