Three different Outlook Converters are supplied for the different versions of Lotus Organizer, one for versions 97 (3.0), one for version 4.0, and one for version 5.0. None of the three supplied converters supports Lotus Organizer 6.0 files. When you use Lotus Organizer 6.0 or higher, it is necessary to export the data from Lotus Organizer to a .csv file . You can then import the .csv file into Outlook. Note that it is necessary to correctly map the data fields in the .csv file to the proper Outlook Contact fields by using the Field Mapper.
