Outlook currently does not support the direct import of Day-Timer 2.0 information. However, data can be exported from Day-Timer into an ASCII delimited file, and can then be imported into Outlook.


Importing data from Day-Timer 2.0 is a four step process. The first three steps define and export the data from Day-Timer.

  1. Define the data to be exported from Day-Timer Organizer for Windows.
  2. Choose the field order for the export file.
  3. Export the data you want from Day-Timer Organizer into an ASCII delimited file.
  4. Import the Day-Timer delimited file into Outlook.

You can obtain more information on exporting an ASCII file from Day-Timer Organizer for Windows (Steps 1-3) from Day-Timer Inc. Because Day- Timer Organizer for Windows is produced and updated by Day-Timer's Inc. we are unable to provide the exact steps for exporting files.

Once you have exported the data from Day-Timer 2.0, import the data into Outlook.

Importing the Day-Timer ASCII File into Outlook

  1. On the File menu, click Import and Export.
  2. Under "Choose an action to perform," click "Import from Schedule+ or another program or file" and click Next.
  3. Under "Select file type to import from," click to select "comma separated value (windows)" and click Next.
  4. In the File To Import box, type the path and file name of the file you want to import, or click Browse to navigate to the file. The ASCII delimited files exported by Day-Timer Organizer will have an .ASC extension.
  5. In "Select destination folder," click the folder you want to store the imported data in and click Next.
  6. Click "Map Custom Fields" if you want to control how fields map from your text data into the destination folder fields, otherwise click Finish.
