I'm unable to export any contact from Outlook 2003 to a vCard. When I open the contact and goto File -- Export to vCard I get the following error ----- Unable to Export to vCard.

When I go to File -- Save as and selct .vcf file I get the following error message ----- Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid.

This happens from different computers running Outlook 2003 and we are running Exchange 2003 SP2. I have tried creating new Outlook profiles, but same issue. Thanks!

Have you run "Detect and Repair" under "Help"?
[You may need the installation CD]

Detect and repair didn't work. I wouldn't think it will since its happening on different computers all running Outlook 2003.

It's always good to have all of the updates installed; especially the security patches.
There is also a potential for a "function fix" in one or more of the above.
I don't have any other suggestions ATM.

Has anything happened on the server lately?
Have you checked System & Application Event logs?


I'm not going to have time to address this for quite a while.
Maybe someone else has some helpful advice.

[What] do you mean:
"The issue got resolved on its own"  ?

We spent time trying to help you & you decide that some magical "woops! It's all over!" provides a solution ?

You seem to misunderstand what EE is here for.
