Default How to Create a Contact Group from a List

I can't figure out how to select contacts for a contact group using a list in excel. The list in excel does not have their email addresses, those are already in Outlook. I just want to select Outlook Contacts that are on my excel list to put in a new contact group. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Is this a one time thing? If so, try this:

In Outlook, pull up your Contacts folder
Click on New Contact Group
Name the new contact group
Click on Add Members
Choose From Outlook Contacts
Find each contact from your Excel list
When finished, click OK, then Save & Close

If this is not a one time thing, or you wanted to simply highlight a bunch of contacts then click a magical button to add all those selected contacts to a new contact group, that's what the Distribution List Manager add-in is for.

Thank you for the response. I understand the directions you gave to make a contact group, but I want to use a list to make the group, not hand select them. It does change so I'm looking for something easier than just selecting them. If I already have a list of the names, you'd think there would be a way to just select those names, no luck so far. I'll check out your site and see if there's something there that might work.
Thanks
