I just upgraded my computer to run MS Office 2010 Pro from Office XP, SP3. I run XP SP3. I had trouble with my Outlook 2002 XP at the holidays trying to export contacts to either a CVS file or Excel files. Now, I'm trying to find an elegant way to get my contacts in a format to export to Yahoo for my mobile mail application since Yahoo sync does not seem to work. I also would like to be able to export my contacts in these formats for other applications since Outlook is where and how I have my contacts up to date. Everytime I try, I get this error message:

"A file error has occurred in the translator while trying to establish a field map.

You do not have permission for the file "C:\Documents and Settings\my name\Application Data\Comma Separated Values (DOS).ADR." This could be because the disk is locked, the file is read-only, in use by another program, or because you do not have permission to use a network path."

I have an individual computer in a home-based business and it is not networked. Prior to migrating to a new cell phone, I synced Outlook with a Tungsten E2. That pathway is now unavailable due to conduit issues (which I think are coming from RAZR-related Motocast or a Verizon MCast Media that I installed and uninstalled.) I want to fix the issue so I can migrate from the Palm to the phone.

Can anyone offer advice? I tried one solution today to change some settings per a post about Outlook 2003 and 2010 about installing filters but it did not work with the 2010 settings.

Thanks for any insights.

Did you verify the export filters were installed? Go to Add/Remove programs and select the office install then choose the option to change - then choose the option to add or remove features. Expand Outlook section - is importers and exporters all installed? I thought they were all installed by default -so if they are installed, do a repair install.
