Hi, Robin. I am also using business card view for my contacts, but when I select a contact, and copy it to the clipboard I don't get a file copied to the clipboard. Instead, I get the text contents for that contact copied to the clipboard. Incidentally, I am using Outlook 2010. I'll paste below, what gets copied to my clipboard when I select a contact, by using my own contact as an example.

Bill, it might be a matter of your view settings for contacts versus mine. I'm using the business card view.

Hi, Robin. This doesn't work for me. When I navigate to a contact and copy it using CONTROL C, then paste it into an outlook email, it pastes text into the email, not an attachment.

Madison,
I have done this a bit with contacts on my work computer to move them to my personal. I open a new email message on the computer where the contacts are located and address the email to myself. I put focus in the body of the message. I then open my Contacts. I navigate to each contact I want to copy over and, without actually opening the contact, I do a control c to copy it. Then I go to the open email message and hit Control v to paste it. I do as many of these as I need, then send the email to myself. When I open the email on the other computer, the message is there with each contact as a separate attachment. I think I just selected all and pasted them with Control v into my contacts. Likewise, you can open each contact attachment and, make any needed edits, and save it.

Hi all,
I was looking at stuff on my old laptop today and noticed that I have a few Outlook contacts on my old computer that aren't in my contacts on this laptop.
So I'm wondering, is there any way to get specific contacts from my contacts on my old computer to my list on this computer? I know how to do a Outlook backup and import it (though I've never done it from one computer to another), but most of the contacts are the same on both computers so I don't really want to do that because then I'd have duplicates and I don't want that. I don't even know why these particular contacts don't show up in my contacts on this computer, a backup was imported, so I don't know if I accidentally deleted them or what happened. My old computer is running Outlook 2013, Windows 7 and the latest vertion of Jaws and this computer is running the latest versions of Office 365, Jaws and Windows 10. Really hope there's a way to do this as I'd really like to have these missing contacts on this computer as I rarely use my old one. Look forward to any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks Madison
