View Full Version : address book

I cannot seem to be able to save my address book to a floppy disk. I'm using 'OUTLOOK EXPRESS'
I also cannot print it out in its entirety, it only prints one address at a time.
Please help.
Regards.

Not sure what means you are using to save it to floppy but the most reliable way is 'exporting' it

try this...
open OE
Select File > Export > Address Book

select Text File (CSV)
hit Export
beside Name hit the Browse button, navigate your way to A drive, name the file, select Text File (as Save As type)then hit Save.

confirm the details, hit Next, select the fields you want, then hit Finish.

To print... open A drive folder, locate the file, check the file association. If it's got Excel it'll print out perfectly under the correct fields. If you don't have excel try notepad or the like.

I've had alot of coffee today so I hope it's clear enough :)


good luck

Hello Rik
To store a copy of your Address book onto floppy disk, do the following, navigate to C:\Windows\ApplicationData\
Microsoft\AddressBook\
Then copy the WAB file to your floppy disk, finished.

If you need to restore your Address book at any time, use the >>File >> Import >> Address book function in Outlook Express.
