MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:
When I select File -> Import and Export -> Export to a file -> Microsoft Excel -> Next, it doesn't allow me to select the contacts for any public folders. It only gives me the option to select contacts from my mailbox.
I'm sorry, I forgot that the export user interface only lists personal contacts data sources. Unfortunately, that means you'll need to create a temporary folder in your mailbox that contains contact items, drag the public folder contacts into that folder, and then export from there instead.
I hope that helps. Thanks for writing back in.
