#1 - Delete all of your existing "named ranges" (assigning one name to each

#2 - Create one named range that encompasses your header row (first row that
has the column names) and all data rows/columns.
#3 - Import into Outlook

or to avoid the entire issue of named ranges.....

#4 - Save your worksheet as a CSV file and import that file instead.

I'm importing data from an Excel file into my contacts the problem is
