Default outlook 2010 beta

I am a member in a football club and other clubs. Now we use an excel list to
share the address. I would like to import it but I don't know how to convert
it so that outlook 2010 can read it.

My second guess was to import it via .csv file. But outlook doesn't support
the way excel separates the data. So I had to use Google. But then it was not
windows-coded. So I had to convert it with notepad++. Outlook doesn't support
utf8 data. So I have German cities with weird names(Like Gießen, my hometown)

Please make it easier!

Outlook's Import Wizard supports both Excel files and CSV files.
Why you think it doesn't remains a mystery since you provided no information
as to the problems you are having.

That was just the way I arranged it.
And Outlook didn't accept it.
I think you're just writing but you never tried out for yourself.

Excel separates data with a semicolon. Outlook separated the data only when
it using a normal "," comma. So I had to make open the file with google
tables so it creates a csv file separated with "," .

Thanks for your help. Where do I post feedback so Microsoft does know about
this issue?

So now I need to find out how to do "named ranges" in the german edition...
