Nowadays, many contacts are found in smartphones and even some button phones know how to export phone numbers to .VCF format. However, information systems usually accept import in CSV format. Even an ordinary user works with MS Excel or its equivalent, where there is a possibility accept .CSV contacts
To convert a .CSV phone number file to a .VCF format for a mobile phone I published my csv2vcf program years ago. You can find it on the server slunecnize.cz here https://www.slunecnice.cz/sw/csv2vcf/ Sometimes the reverse conversion program vcf2csv may be useful. I originally designed this program just for my private use, but it turned out to be as useful as his friend csv2vcf.
A .VCF file can look like this:
Hooray, there is everything I need just for Excel it should be in one line. You could edit it for one contact manually, but you usually have 100 or more contacts in a .VCF file. So we leave the job to the program.
Required parameters must be stored in vcf2csv.ini .
Firstname=FN: Lastname=N: Email=EMAIL Phone=TEL
Here I specify the column names of the resulting table to make it understandable. If I omit the line Email=EMAIL here in the definition, then the resulting .CSV file does not contain the email address even if it is included in the .VCF input file.
The program vcf2csv has no graphical extension as the menu and therefore I have to specify the file name where to read data by editing.the vcf2csv.ini :
Firstname=FN: Lastname=N: Email=EMAIL Phone=TEL gmail.vcf
If I do nothing more, vcf2csv creates a file gmail.csv . So it takes the name of the output file from the input file and it looks like this:
"Ing. Frantisek Kamenicky","Kamenicky Frantisek Ing.","email@example.com","+421903452761"
