Accidently deleted Contacts folder in Outlook2000 and need it back!

I deleted my Contacts folder in Outlook 2000 and now I get an error that says "error opening Windows Address Book". The Windows address book works, so how do I get my contacts folder back in Outlook. I don't care about the contents as I can retireve the addresses from my emails, but I have searched all the help I can find and no where does it say how to accomplish this. Any help is appreciated. Will importing it from another OL .pst file do the trick? Any help is appreciated.

You can try recovering the Contacts folder from the Deleted Items folder. If you can't do that, try starting Outlook once with the /resetfolders command line switch to recreate an empty Contacts folder. After that you should be to refill it (by import or by hand)

Thanks Vince. Where did you find this command? I looked in the Outlook help and in the MS knowledgebase and found nothing.

Does anyone know HOW to "try starting Outlook once with the /resetfolders command line switch to recreate an empty Contacts folder."?  I, Bev_Jean, deleted my contacts folder too.  Help needed!
