    Before Yahoo changed the "Address" feature on Classic Mail to "Contacts" I was able to export one category (with many names) to another Yahoo user. Now I try to export one category but the entire Contact list is exported. Please help!

    Re: How do I export a single category on Yahoo?

    Hello,

    The way I handle creating a list of Yahoo contacts from a specific category is to do the following :
    • Export the complete contacts list in Yahoo CSV format
    • Download the CSV file to my desktop
    • Upload the CSV file to Google Docs
    • Click the arrow at the top of the category column -> sort A-Z
    • Now your contacts are organized by category so you can cut -> paste -> save only the category of contacts that you want to share.
    If you need more specific steps and screen shots please let us know.

    How do you upload the csv file into Google Docs? I've already made a separate list of contacts in my Yahoo mail, and need to export it into a csv - not my ENTIRE address book. How do I upload it into Google Docs? Thanks!

    ok, I figured out how to import the csv file into google docs - but are you saying I need to cut and paste 356 contacts from this new list I've made? I don't quite get what I'm supposed to do now. Thanks!!
