How to Manually Export Contacts From Constant Contact
Open Constant Contact and click Contacts in the top menu bar.
This will bring you to your contacts page.
Check the contacts you want to export and the Export button will show up in the dark gray toolbar above your contacts.
If you'd like to export all of your contacts, click the checkbox in the top row. This will select all of your contacts.
When you click Export, you will be asked which information to include in your export. Check everything that's relevant.
A pop-up will offer you a CSV and an Excel download.
If you miss this pop-up, don't worry: head to Activity.
Here you can download the export you just created.
What's the difference between the two formats? Here's a quick overview.
A CSV, or comma separated variables, file is a simple text document. Each of your contacts will be one line in that text document, with each field separated by a comma. CSV files are a very common way to import and export contacts between different services, so in most cases this is going to be what you want.
An Excel file is a spreadsheet you can open using Microsoft's spreadsheet software, Excel, though other applications can open it. Use this if you specifically want an Excel file.
