Importing Outlook contacts into my custom software

Hi all,
I am working on a desktop software and using dot net( C# and its a
standalone software , its not a outlook pluggin). I have to import
Outlook 2003 contacts into my software. How would i go about it?
Are outlook 2003 contacts held in a file, which file is this?
Moreover, what is a PST file and what information is held in PST file?
I have never programmed Outlook 2003 so please enlighten me...Obliged.
Any help or comments will be highly appreciated.
Thanks.
-Erland

Is exporting the contacts from Outlook an option?
If so, you can export contacts to MS Access or Excel and use it just
like a database and import all contacts.

Thanks for your message. However, i would like to automate the process.
I mean i want my software to import all Outlooko contacts by just
pressing a button. How is that possible?
