There is no built in way to get to Excel with Backup Assistant, but there is a kludgy workaround. Tell Backup Assistant to print your contact list (on your computer), and it will open a pop up window with the information. You can then click and drag to select all of it, copy, and paste it AS TEXT (on the right click menu in Excel choose Paste special....then choose as text) into Excel. That will put everything into nice neat columns in Excel that you can do with what you like...save as .csv, save as .txt, etc. and then import that into the BB.
