From past few years I was using MS Excel workbook to store my contacts and information. Though Microsoft Excel is a commonly platform which used to store and manage a large amount of data, however, opting this way to store contacts is now an old trend. Additionally, Excel file does not allow me to share the contacts separately via email or any other medium. On the other hand, vCard files can easily store a single contact in the standard form that can be shared or transferred over computers and networks. Also, vCard files are highly compatible with various devices, online and offline email clients and are capable to store name, address, contacts number, email address, and many other contact information. Hence, recently I decided to import all my contacts from Excel to vCard file format. Then, I executed some manual methods to accomplish the task but manually doing this, is a quite lengthy procedure. Thus, finally decided to take help from a third-party application and I got Excel to VCF Converter. I was very impressed by the working of this software so thought to share my experience with other users who are looking for a perfect solution to convert Excel contacts to vCard format without having any trouble.
