Do a search for files with the extension .wab if using Outlook Express
(Windows Address book) or .pst if using MS Outlook.. save them to CD, then
'import' the address book into your new computer..

Good luck

If Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened
rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic
music.

Open your existing address book.

Use File - Export - Address Book and save the content to a removable
disk (e.g. CDRW drive) or other backup device.

On the new computer use File - Import (in the address book of course)
to import the saved data.


You can also use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard in Windows XP
to move more than just the address book, if that is of any interest to
you. See the article by MVP Gary Woodruff at

Good luck
