Add Personal Address Book to Contacts view....

I have a small personal address book in Outlook that I would like to have show up in the contacts view like the default 'Contacts' does. How can I add the personal address book to the view so I can navigate easily between that and the default Outlook contacts in Outlook 2003?

On the contacts folder in outlook, right click, properties. On the properties tab tick the box
called Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book
Clicked too early :P

Goto Control Panel -> Mail -> Profile ->Properties Button -> Data Files.. Button --> Add the contact file to your address book list."OK" your way all the way back out.

Hey Neilsr, that option is just for the 'default' contacts don't have a folder for a PAB. You can also do it with a contact list in the Public Folders, but not for a PAB.

only thing that would work. After speaking to Microsoft this is not functionality they have ever really built in
