How to Transfer Outlook Web Access Contacts ==>> Desktop Outlook 2010 Contacts

I am in a remote location from my exchange server and have just installed my Desktop 2010 Desktop program.

I can see all my emails (sent, inbox).
How can I get my contacts.  I can see them when I use Outlook web access but my desktop doesn't have any contacts.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How did you sent Outlook on your desktop? if you can see the emails, then calendar and contact should be sync as well.

Incomplete data.
I don't see my calendar events and I don't see groups (within contacts) I created.
Can you provide more information about the Application that you use and how set it up?

Before upgrading from 2003/2007 to 2010, or configuring the new settings for 2010, export a copy of all contacts as a .csv or .pst. Contacts will not be moved over when the Exchange account is set up on Outlook 2010. Once Outlook has been upgraded and the new Exchange profile has been created, import contacts.
Exporting Contacts from 2003/2007 (before migrating)

    File -> Import and Export (opens the Import and Export Wizard)
    Select either Comma Separated Values (Windows) or Personal Folder File (.pst)
    Choose 'Export to a file' and click 'Next'.
    Select 'Contacts' as the folder to export from and click 'Next'. (If you wish to create a backup of everything, select all folders - works best if .pst file was selected.)
    Enter the name and location for your contacts export file; click 'Finish'.

Exporting Contacts from 2010

    Launch the Import and Export Wizard: File -> Open -> Import
    In the Import and Export Wizard, select 'Export to a file', click 'Next'.
    Under File type, select 'Outlook Data File (.pst)', cick 'Next'.
    Select the 'Contacts' folder (unless you want to save all data), click 'Next'.
    Give the backup file a name and choose the destination to save it, click 'Finish'.
    Add an optional password to secure the backup file
