I am anxiously awaiting the answer for exporting a category instead of the
entire address book. I have tried for several hours and can't find anyway to
restrict the export file to just a single category.

Create a new pst file and copy that category to the new contacts file.
Then export that to a csv file.

Asking a question?
Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,
your OS, Service Pack level
and the FULL contents of any error message(s)

Create a new contacts folder and copy the category to it. Export that folder.
Gordon says to create a new PST, but that's overkill. You can if you want,
but a new folder will do.

Thanks to all for ideas. But it all seems like big overkill. I guess the
answer is MS doesn't provide a straightforward way to do it. WOuld certainly
be a nice future feature.
