Transferring Outlook data

  Granddad Ray 09:35 16 Mar 2006

I have just acquired a new computer and wish to transfer my address book etc from the old to the new. As advised in replies to my earlier question,I have copied the .dbx files from my old computer and stored them im a temporary position on my new computer. How do I now put the files where they should be?

I am assuming Outlook Express, go to File/Import/ Address Book and select the file you have saved your .dbx file to

The address book is not contained in .dbx files - it's in a .wab file - email messages are in .dbx files.

Go to File - Import - Address Book - and search for the .wab file(s) to import.
