Import Netscape Address Book

I am unable to import a Netscape 4.79 address book into Outlook 2000. I have successfully imported all of my Mail Folders, but Outlook does not seem to recognize the Netscape Address Book files?

Is this a common issue with Outlook and Netscape?
Is there a work around? I have about 500 contacts to import.

Thanks.

Have you tried exporting the address book to another format than importing into outlook.

another method (that I have not tried) would be to import netscape into outlook express, than export to a pab which can be imported into outlook. If you would rather have contacts instead of a pab for outlook, you can convert your pab to contacts using the import method.

starl,
Thanks. I converted (NS Export) it to a comma delimited file and had no problem importing it into Outlook.

Thanks very much.
