Have done a complete clean re-install of Windows XP Pro/Office 200s Pro. I backed up my address book seperately to CD, it made itself a *.wab file [as opposed to *.pab]. I cannot import it, get various denials. Have copied to hard drive, checked the option of making it a v.card default file. Help please - thank you.
Completealias - that sounds good - on my desktop that is exactly where *.wab is. However on my daughters laptop which I am working on there is no 'application data' folder in her or in 'all users'. Has my reinstall gone wrong - I think not since internet & email is OK - but this is weird..........
OK - can now see addresss booksin app dat/microsoft. I have a *wab file and an Outlook Address Book with no extension. I can neither 'send to' or 'import'. When I try to import I select 'Import grom another program or file' then the option is either Personal Address Book or *.pst - and it is neither of these? Thanks so far - any more ideas?
Search for *.wab using Explorer. Change the file name found to old.wab. Copy your imported wab into this directory and change the file name to that of the one you just found, and it should work OK - have done it a number of times and it works.
Thanks guys, tried all that without success. SSeLa, have changed file name to old.wab. Then gone to Import Internet mail and Addresses - So, after Import Internet Mail/Next there is no correct choice of location to import from????????????
Maybe the problem is that the folders/address books are resident in My Documents. Hard drive has been reformatted, I just loaded the address book file from a CD back on to PC.
