In Outlook Express I can export my address book to a floppy but when I try to import it to my new computer it comes up with the message "an error occurred during the import process". What am I doing Wrong?

How are you importing it to the other computer? Are you replacing the existing address book or using the import facility?

Make sure the file is not Read Only. Right click the file and select Properties, Uncheck read Only if checked.

you should export your address book as a "comma seperated values (windows)" file

Thalmus is right here. Export the address book as he says and then copy it to a floppy, copy the file to the Hard Disc of your new computer and then import the comma delimited file into your new address book.

Option Two - only if you don`t have new contacts in your new computers address book - simply copy the address book as you have done and overwrite the one on the new computer.
