Outlook Express 5 won't import address b

By cdl0706 ·
Before reformatting my PC, I saved my OE5 address book to a zip disk. After reinstalling Windows 98, Win98SE and OE5, OE works fine but it will not import my old address book. I really need the info and would appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks.

i'm guessing you tried using the import function in oe5. if that didn't work try using other email programs to import eudora, netscape mail, outlook. then export into oe5.

Copy existing *.pab (expanded) to the hard drive, include pathway in Outlook profile and that should do it. Insure that no corruption from ZIP is evident. Any conflict may be addressed by using pcracker.exe to access existing information in file and reinput.

Didn't work for OE. May have worked for Outlook which I don't have.

not sure if this is it or not, but i have had a lot of people say they made a copy of there address book and wanted to put it back on there system when done formating. i have found that they copied the address book program and not the data inside. if this is the case, your info is lost. you have to go to this folder to copy the data in the address book. C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book.

I copied the AB not the program. I copied it from the correct folder.
