Why can't I import and export the followup flag field? It's a date field that 
I like to use often. I've been trying to import and export the contact 
information as a .csv

Actually this is one of the few times the version does not matter. Whenever 
you export Outlook data to a foreign file format, you will lose data and 
fields that are unique to Outlook and not supported by the other file 
format. The follow up flag is one of many such fields.
Do you really need to change file format? If not, it's better not to export 
data at all. Just copy the Outlook data file.

I'm building a feature to export contacts to Excel. My form has 291
properties (including nearly 100 user properties), too many rows for Excel
so I have to cut some. I'm using Outlook 2002. There are many built-in
properties (fields) I've never heard of that seem easy to drop, but I want
to preserve all fields necessary to import this file into a different copy
of Outlook and have it work ok. Can I skip fields like Application, Session,
Outlook Internal Version, Parent, FormDescription, GetInspector,
MessageClass, NoAging, IsConflict, Actions, Saved, Journal, UserCertificate,
UserProperties, and ItemProperties? What about ones that sound like they're
really for mail messages, like conversationIndex, ConversationTopic,
DownloadState, or MarkForDownload?

Also, in exporting, certain fields are hanging up the export routine and
causing errors (e.g. Type Mismatch). For example, ReferredBy, which in the
Locals window shows up as having value <> rather than "" as most text fields
do (same problem with email fields). Is that a symbol for Null? For these
fields do I need some other syntax to export them than
