   1. In the From box, drag the field that you want to convert onto the
Outlook field that is listed in the To box.

 Note   The Name field doesn't appear in the To box because Outlook reserves
the first row of a named range or field names. If the range that you import
does not contain field names, the first row of data will be interpreted as
field names and will not be imported as data. To make sure that all of the
data in the named range is imported, use the first row for field names.

    * To see additional records in the From box, click Previous or Next.
    * To remove all mapping, click Clear Map.
    * To reset the original mapping, click Default Map.

   2. To display additional fields in the To box, click the plus sign (+)
next to the field. For example, to display the Business Street and Business
City fields, click the plus sign (+) next to Business Address.

  17. Click Finish.

Hope this helps
