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?

Hey Neilsr, that option is just for the 'default' contacts folder...you 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.

add2outlook seemed to be the only way to do it.
