Does anybody know how to import a Novell address book in either .vcf of .nab format, into Outlokk 2000?
I tried .nab and got nowhere, and .vcf only imports one record for some reason.

Thanks for the URL, but I had tried this already. When I browse to locate the comma separated file (Windows), the .nab file does not appear for selection. I have opened it in Notepad, and it looks fine, but Outlook can't see it.

export it to nab.
now open excel, open the nab file you've made.
(make sure you are looking for *.*)
click on next on the first window.
now add comma values and click on finish.

now delete the first row and the empty collumns.

You should be able to import this to outlook.

but I believe there is an easier way, novell has a groupwise patch for outlook available which will enable you to run outlook as a front for groupwise.

this will also get you the groupwise addressbook I suspect, I will give you the link when I find it.

Considering that the *.nab file is nothing more than a comma separated values file, you should be able to change the extension to *.csv.  Once that is done, you should be able to use the Import/Export engine to import the file.

So the solution seems to be, export the address book as a .nab file, change it to a .csv and import as detailed in the Microsoft article above.
