Importing Notes from Outlook - How to place into specific Notebo

I would like to import my existing Outlook Notes into a specific Notebook in TD. It seems to put everything into a Notebook called 'No Folder'.

I created a Folder called 'Work'. The notebook itself did not appear in the notebook list until I:

1. synced notebooks with ITouch/Appigo-Notebook app
2. created a note on my ITouch in that folder
3. resynced

This is cumbersome already. Anyway, to get the notes from 'No Folder' into 'Work' I have to open each note, edit it and save the folder name.

If there is a better way, like during the import I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Before you import, you can open the CSV file in a program like Microsoft Excel and then you can copy and paste the word "Work" into the column that represents folder. Then when you import, all the notes will go into the Work folder.

Hope that helps

I finally was able to import. I had to massage the exported Outlook notes, but finally the import worked. Thanks.
