Location where contacts are stored?

Using Outlook 2003 client (running off a MS Exchange server).  Had contacts and they were being suggested via auto-complete.  Now the Contacts appear to have disappeared.  How do I find them?  What are the possible locations that they are stored in?

Apart from:
-  contacts folder in Exchange mailbox - it's empty
-  contacts folders in personal storage files - I'm not using .PSTs
-  Windows and Personal Address Books - I have no .PAB or .WAB files

I have seen this once before when another user had contacts but we could not locate where they were being stored.  Not in any of - what I believe are - the usual suspects.

Are there any other locations that Outlook can store contacts in?

The autocomplete cache is stored in a *.nk2 file at C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

the file may have become corrupt and will recreate itself.
