Trying to export email a/d list from Outlook 2000. Outlook's Help(!) says -

"To export your Address Book files to another Windows Address Book:In Address Book, on the File menu, point to Export, and then click Address Book (WAB). "

Which is straightfwd enuff. But The "Export" option is `greyed out', & i just canna make it `black' i.e. an available option. Grrrhh!

Any suggestions appreciated. Running XP.

Have you tried an "import" function in the app you want to export it to?
