Hi,

In Outlook Express, go to File > Import > Address Book
Browse for your WAB file on your CD and import it.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I am assuming you were running Outlook Express on the Win98 system and the WinXP system and not Outlook on one and not the other and that the WinXP Outlook Express in the same or newer version of it.

This is what Microsoft says about importing a WAB file:
An older version of the Windows Address Book does not recognize a newer version of a .wab file. However, a newer version of the Windows Address Book is able to recognize older versions.


Is this the case here?

If it is not, read this article:

Hi
Yes,that is the case.
When I open the WAB file on CD with Windows XP the address book is empty.
The WAB was copied using Windows 98.
Thanks for your continued help.
