    Have been trying to upload a contact file that I generated in OpenOffice Calc (like Excel). I export into CSV just one column of e-mail addresses. I try uploading this on Facebook contact file option and it rejects the CSV file every time. I have tried CSV format with the emails in quotations ("") and without. I have tried with the first line being "E-mail addresses" (as it specifies in Facebook help) and without. Still, it's giving me an error when I try uploading the file. Any suggestions? Is my format wrong?

    --
    FYI, here is one variation of the CSV file I used:
    E-mail Addresses
    "ChristopherGARCIA@gmail.com"
    "MatthewMARTINEZ@gmail.com"
    "JoshuaROBINSON@gmail.com"
    "DanielCLARK@gmail.com"
    "DavidRODRIGUEZ@gmail.com"

    I have never tried to upload a csv file for this, so i can't let you know whether or not it has worked for me.
    What i tend to do is use a (.ctt).
    It works every time when i upload a (.ctt), if you need help how to make a (.ctt) file, google is your friend, and if you still can't get any help just reply back here.

    OK, cool, figured it out- thank you GMAIL.

    HOW-TO import contacts
    ----
    1. Generate list of emails however you will (download a list, auto-generator) -> output/save list as CSV
    2. Create gmail account (any email address wil do)
    3. Gmail...Contacts...Import (select CSV)
    4. From FB...Friends...Find People you Email...enter Gmail credentials

    Facebook will import all addresses from Gmail. That should do it.


    Note: CSV Format MUST have
    E-mail Address

    as first line

    rest are email addresses- one per line, no "" marks.
