Default Moving Addresses to Outlook

Percy, it depends on your OS. Which one are you currently running on?

I'm trying to import my address book from Outlook Express
into Outlook. The Export Wizard in OE instructs me to
save the export as a "comma separated value" (.csv) file
which I do and then close the wizard. When I try to
import it into Outlook the Wizard can't browse to it.
The search function can't find it either. Am I missing a
step in the procedure?

Thanks for any assistance,

Percy Pellerin

The address book is actually stored in a .wab file. I figure the reason =
that you can't find the .csv file is that it is in a hidden folder. Try =
exporting it again and specify that it be saved to your Desktop. You =
should be able to browse to it with no problem then.

Good luck,
Eric.

Percy ... you didn't indicate which version of Outlook you have ... but in OL2000, at least, (not sure about
others), there's an option to import addresses directly from Outlook Express.

Rather than exporting from Outlook Express, you need to do an import from Outlook ... go to File, Import and
Export, Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and select Outlook Express. Then put an checkmark in the box
for 'Import Address Book', select the destination Outlook Contacts Folder and click 'Finish' ... that's all
there is to it.
