Got a problem importing address book

  pj123 15:28 15 Jun 2003

I have a problem importing an email address book to a new hard drive. I went to C:\windows\application data\microsoft\address book and copied the .wab to the new hard disk but when I try to import it i get error messages?
How do I get my address book from old hard disk to new hard disk?

Export the address book. (File > Export > Address Book (WAB)...)


Import Adrees Book. (File > Import > Address Book (WAB)...)

copy the file to your new hard drive, right click and choose properties, untick Read Only

then try to import back into address book

i think thats all it will be mate, i know it is this if you try to import from a cd (saved files)

There is another way, which might work. Go into the address book. File / Export / Address Book (Wab). This will take you into the normal 'save' function. Give it a name and save it where you want to. I just did this with a floppy and it worked fine. Good luck.

Thanks powerless, but do I need both drives on the same computer. i have the new drive as master and the old as slave. I then go to OE and export from the slave and then import from the master? I eventually want to take the old (slave) off and only have one drive.
