Did you have a question, or were you just showing us you know how to create
blank replies? The question you quoted is irrelevant since there is no
address book in Outlook and you would never try to transfer data via the
address book view.

Russ, you seem in the know.
I have a problem. Am using Outlook 2003.
Have followed instrusctions to bring across addresses from Outlook Express,
and now have them in my "Contacts" folder.
But... whenever I click the "To..." on a new email, it brings up "Address
Book" (which has nothing in it).
I followed posted advice to 'select' the Contact' on that screen - but it
isn't available. I also followed the instructions on the address mentioned
above which says to open 'folder' go to 'address book' and click "Show this
folder as an email address book" - unfortunately the area is 'grey' and
unclickable.
I am stuck....

First step is to make sure you have added the address book service to this
profile as explained here:

My wife just showed me an "Address Book" icon in her Outlook 2003.

All that does is to present the User with a view of the contacts folder.

I have the same problem. When I attempt to do the following, the option "
Show this folder as an e-mail address book" is greyed out. I think that's
where everyone gets stuck. Why is it grey, and how can I select it?

As we answer daily, it means you have corrupted your Outlook profile and
must create a new one.
