Exporting contacts file from Iphone to Outlook

For some reason my contacts list in Outlook disappeared. How can I export the contacts list from my Iphone 4 back to Outlook. I originally imported that same file from Outlook to the Iphone. I don't want to be hooking up the Iphone for a sync and Itunes decides to erase all my contacts from the Iphone..

When you sync, click on merge when it asks. You might want to add one contact to Outlook just to make sure it gives you the merge option. Also, sync your contacts to GMail before doing this, so you have them online, just in case.

Thanks for your reply.
I actually did export the contact file over to Gmail. It took all of 30 seconds and I like the way it looks. I just may use that list for my contacts and ignore Outlook as I don't like using any Microsoft programs for the Internet. I can't believe how difficult it has been trying to get a Csv file into Outlook. I have a Txt file and a Csv file with all the contact information and I can't get it into Outlook. Another reason I'm thinking of switching totally to Mac!
I'll try the merge as you suggested and let you know.

Merging the contact information from the Iphone to Outlook was successful.

Thanks for your help!
P.S. Made a backup file so this doesn't happen again.
