I didn't think this would be so hard.  I have a new computer with WinXP pro and Outlook will be my email prog. My current computer uses Outlook express.  I wan't to export my address book from my old computer to the new one but the import function never recognizes the exported file.  What do I need to do?

What did you export the file as?  (Generally I just open the Windows Address Book [wab.exe] and select File | Export | Other Address Book | Text (CSV).  This csv file is then moved to the other machine and select File | Import | Other Address Book and select Text (CSV))

Cheers,

PS - CSV stands for comma separated value
