Using a Free tool (Dawn ) I found on the internet it is possible to convert an Outlook address book (Microsoft Exchange personal address book ) to ldap format, this format is supported on the IR5000i address book import tool under Remote UI.
The tool Dawn can be downloaded from http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~zakharin/Software/Dawn.html Other tool that works very well converting address books is Address Magic, It is a commercial product and a license is required, a demo version is available for download at http://www.connectedsw.com
Since Dawn is free I prepared a document (MS Word97) on how to convert outlook Address Books to ldap format.
2. I'd like some information on the Canon
Address Book Conversion Utility (ABCU)
Here is a snip from the readme
"Address Book Conversion Utility imports fax numbers, e-mail addresses and other data created using Lotus Notes (Notes), Microsoft Exchange (Exchange), and other applications, and converts the data to a format that can be used by a Canon device"
The included readme and users guide PDF should be enough to get you
I had a customer recently request how they could get their
proprietary email database quickly over to a 5000i with little fuss
The customer provided a simple CSV file
Unfortunately the CSV file format is not readable by the ABCU
Here is a CSV file format that will open up successfully with the
0,Canon Canada Fax,,7952028,ISG Service,3322,
1,Canon Canada Email,, ,ISG Service,0,
You should not have to edit the first line.The convention for all other lines is as follows
3. I'd like to export an address book from an older iR to a newer iR
The address book from an older iR may not be compatible with a newer iR
Ivano Dalla Pasqua was kind enough to provide his solution for converting an iR2200 address book into a format the iR4570 understood
This is regarding address book importing/exporting from older or dissimilar Canon models.
As you may recall, you suggested modifying the address book file from the old copier to allow it to be imported into the new copier.
I found that I had to copy specific lines from the 4570 address book file and paste over the same section of the exported file of the 2200.
I then saved the changes and imported the file to the 4570 successfully"
The lines Ivano is referring to are these
# Canon AddressBook version: 1
# CharSet: WCP1252
# SubAddressBookName: Fax Destinations
# DB Version: 0x0102
We hope this helps
