Default Merged Outlook contacts give too many duplicates

Hello,
This forum is great. Useful information here.
I have to resolve this problem. We just bought a CRM software and until today, each salesman had his own contact list in Outlook. I retrieved, for each of them, XLS files from Outlook and I copy-pasted it in one file. Thing is, now I have hundrds and hundreds of duplicate records . I would like to get rid of all the duplicates, how can I handle this easily?
Thanks a lot.

Hello.
I'd recommend you have a look at an ETL tool. It allows, among other things, to "clean up data" including deleting duplicate records. A free to download tool might be best.

It may be to late, but here is a way to do that.

Once you export your existing files and perform the above process you will have the option in Outlook to avoid duplicates when you import.
