Exporting Live Mail Contacts to external drive

I found this forum very useful for exporting Windows Live Mail emails and contacts to an external drive, thank you!!! 🤗 Question: Contacts auto-saved in Excel format. I selected the 'CSV' option, but didn't see a format/program option. Is that normal? After I hose my laptop, and get set up, will my contacts import from the Excel folder back into Live Mail? Thank you for your time and advice.
