Contacts folder cannot be opened
Posted on 2003-12-06
I just changed from Microsoft 2000 and Outlook 2000 to XP and Office XP. I did this by backing up my data and formating the drive. I did the following to save my Outlook information
I backup my .pst file. I did not use a .pab file (personal address book) because in the last six months I have been using Outlook configured for POP (Outlook doesn't seem to want you to have a .PAB unless you select Microsoft Exchange server)
Anyway I replaced the default Outlook.pst with the one I backed up. I can see my old mail and I can see my contacts. However if I go to click on my contacts to add them to the "too" field I get the following error message.
The Contacts folder associated with the list could not be opened it may be moved or you don't have permissions. I have been using the default folder
F:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst
I am logged in as Administrator and have full control to that file.
Anyone have any thoughts as too how I can get to use to email my contacts instead of just looking at them. Thanks in advance for your help.
