Import Address Book from 98se to xp

  pj123 15:48 21 Jul 2006

I am trying to import my address book from a computer with Win 98SE to another computer with Win XP.

Although it says "address book imported successfully" when I try to open the address book there is nothing there.

I have also tried copying the .wab file to the relevant folder on the Win XP computer but that doesn't work either.

Any help please?

did you use "text file comma seperated values"

Ikelos, no with XP running and the win 98se hdd in as a slave I just Imported Address Book and pointed it to the relevant file.

It said the import was successful.

when i transfered mine over from 98 to xp, no way would it have it, even though it said it was cooked, when i tried again with the "text file" thingy, and went down the list to "other" address book. it was sorted....

Ikelos, thanks. Will give that way a try.

I have just saved it as a csv file to floppy disk.

The CSV didn't work. The only option I get on File, Import is Address Book .wab file.

Sorry, Ikelos. Didn't have my brain in gear. Just hit mouse button without reading all the options.

Now all is fixed, thank you.
