Hi all,

For some reasons, I have to move outlook 2003 things to outlook 2000.  I imported the PAB, ie the personal address book in the outlook 2000.  However, I still can't see anything when I click "Contact".  When I import the pab, it said it is saved in the contact folder.  So, where can I access it?  And how to "load" the address book into the "Contact" so that I can use the old contacts in 2003.  Thanks for all replies.

    Hi jesshon,

    can you click on contacts on the left navigation pane and can see contacts ?

    Do this

    Right-click on Contact in the left navigation pane and go to properties
    go to outlook address book (TAB)
    and check " Show this folder as an email address book"
    press OK and check the contacts

    if the option is greyed out , go to tools > services and add an address book

    Hi SR, thank you very much.  I didn't see anything by clicking contacts.  And then I followed your advice to click the address book tab, the option is greyed out.  Then, I go to Tools, but I can't find services, what should I click into and add the address book?

    I'm using the Outlook 2000 Internet Mail Only 9.0.0.2711

    I went to Tools -> Accounts -> it showed Internet accounts only.  There is new account I can add, not the address book /_\
