Outlook - Contacts Folder

After doing a reinstallation of XP SP2 & Office Professional, I copied my Outlook (Not Express) backup .pst file into Outlook & everything, emails, tasks & contacts appeared to be ok. However, when I select ‘To’ to insert addresses from my Contacts into a new email, I get the message that the folder could not be opened or it had been moved or deleted. But if I click on the contacts folder in the Outlook Shortcuts column, all of my contacts are correctly displayed.

Everything else is working OK

Try Detect and Repair under Help (I assume that you have the disc)

In Outlook, Tools/Options/Data Files.../Mail Setup, click the 'Settings' button and ensure that the file path is correct for the storage of your .pst files

VMT for the responses.
I followed the instructions on Betas’s link but got the message ’The account or directory already exists & cannot be specified’. However, the next set of instructions to right click on Contacts in Outlook & Select Properties, Outlook Address Book & check that the ‘Show folder as an e-mail address book’ box was selected identified the problem; my box was not checked/ticked.
Considering the time & the number of avenues that I investigated to try & solve this problem, I find it hard to believe that I failed to right click on the Contacts (KISS).
Again VMT for your help.
