I have already an address book in my OE 5.
I have also another address book (.wab) [from my office pc ] and I want to import this into my home pc.
Is it possible to do so? Or If I make an import I would loose my old address book?

Hi there vage78,

You can import the address book without deleting the existing one - this is done via File / Import / Address Book...

The only potential issue will be on contacts that exist on both - but you can choose which one to keep.

Either way export a copy of your existing address book before importing the new one just in case you need to refer back to it.

Import Address Book refers to a .wab file only and refers to an address book created on Outlook Express

Import Other address book refers to imports from other programs such as Eudora, Communicator, etc.

You cannot directly import a .WAB into Outlook.

But you can import it into Outlook Express then inport the address book from Outlook Express into Outlook.

Around the houses but it works!!!
