I have just installed windows xp, and like a good boy I made a back up of all my old documents and settings from windows 98. I then formatted the hard drive and did a clean install of XP. my problem is how do I get Outlook to pick up on my old address book, an outlook pst file, which I have put under a folder in my documents.

In Outlook, you can simply use File - Open - Personal Store Folder - and browse to your old pst file.

If you wish you can then transfer the contacts between your old pst file and the new one, then close the old one again.
