Default excel file type missing from import a file window in outlook

I cannot find either an excel file type nor a CSV file type in the "import a
file" window. I therefore am unable to import an excel file with contact
data.

How do I get the list to include csv or xls file types to select for import?

Are the Importers and Exporters all installed for your version of Outlook?

Default excel file type missing from import a file window in outlook

I can only assume not. How can I tell?? How do I add Importers and
exporters??
If they are not in what steps should I take to get them in??
I tried to run the setup for Office Prof 2003 but for some reason it just
disappears
after it loads the install files, copys files and reads my system to access
what is installed. No error messege shows up just poof and it's gone.

Use the Office Maintenance Wizard in Control Panel Add/Remove. If you
cannot use that to find your installation files on your original Office
installation CD, then you need to post in one of the Office groups for help
with your installation.

Office 2003's Maintenance Wizard is in Control Panel Add/Remove
Microsoft Office 2003
It will tell you what you have installed and what you don't. It will find
and use your original installation medium to install anything you don't
have. If it fails, you have an Office problem, not an Outlook problem.

Thank you for the instruction, however,
interestingly enough, there was no option in the importer/exporters to add
excel files or csv files. I am therefore back at square one.

Unclear what you mean. If Importers and Exporters are installed, those file
types are available for import.

Default excel file type missing from import a file window in outlook

What is unclear???
The options to select when importing a file DO NOT INCLUDE "EXCEL" ( .XSL )
OR .CSV. THE FILE TYPES ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO SELECT FOR IMPORT. The only
three lines in the Imoprt a File window a
Outlook 4.x,5.x,6.x
Personal Address Book
Personal Folder File (.pst)

THAT'S IT..... NOTHING MORE!!!

Then Importers and Exporters are not installed.
Explain why you think they are.
I told you to look in the Office Maintenance Wizard. What do you see there?
