Address Book Export Issues in Outlook 98 and O. Express

Outlook 98 is my primary email, and Outlook Express 6 is 
also used for newsgroups.  When I open the Outlook 98 
Address Book and go to File in the menu bar, both Import 
and Export in the drop down menu are grayed out.  To 
enable these commands, a MS Knowledge base article said to 
switch to "Do not share contact info with other 
Outlook...", which I did.  But now when I try open the 
Address Book from within in 98, I get the Express Address 
Book ("Main Identity) with no Contacts instead of the 98 
Address Book, and Import and Export are still grayed out.  
Very confusing!!

You read Help for Outlook Express, not Outlook. What you saw was dead wrong.
Do not turn off sharing.
The Address Book interface is never used for Import and Export. That's why
those options are grayed out. Outlook does not store anything in the Address
Book. All Contacts Data is stored in the Contacts Folder. That is where you
can import and Export.

Eudora to Outlook migration
I need to migrate a user from Eudora 4.3 on Mac OS9 to Outlook on WinXP. I've tried this before following what little info I could dig up from Qualcomm and Microsoft, neither of which are any help when the prescribed method hiccups or fails. Previously, following the Outlook import procedure, it took repeated attempts following the same steps before Outlook finally recognized the file and imported the address book information. But I could never get it to import messages or mailboxes. Any ideas? Are there better instructions out there somewhere? Outlook Express has an import function ...

Address List Synchronization
My scenario is I have 2 Windows 2003 Active Directory Forests and 1 Exchange 2003 Organization. The users in the forest without the Exch Org have 2 AD accounts (1 for each forest) and the Exch Mailbox has granted rights to the external accounts. So mailflow works fine and so does free & busy information but the problem is sharing calendars. My problem is the GAL lists the accounts from the Forest that has the Exch Org so I cannot find a way for users in the othe Forest to share their calendars and view shared calendars, since I don't know of a way to share an object that is not...

Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager and Outlook Connector
Hi, I'm new to all of this but hope someone will know the answer. Because I have several computers active at any one time and multiple email accounts for different business entities, I've got my email set up through Hotmail using Windows Live Domains so that the email address uses the domain names I own. I do this because all computers then have copies of sent items. This is helpful because I don't need to hunt thorough the different PST files on the different machines. I have installed Outlook Connector in Outlook 2007 so I can access those email accounts in Outlook whic...

SFO sync issue with outlook contacts (address name filed)
Hi all, I installed SFO on several outlook clients to get the CRM database available "on the field". The synchronization (Go offline / Go online) works fine but when SFO adds the CRM contacts to the outlook contact folder, it drops the "address name" field in from contact information. All other fields (First Name, Last Name, Street 1, Street2, ZIP, ...) are copied correctly. I renamed the "address name" field as "street 0" and I am wondering if it could be the reason of the problem. 1- Can anyone tell me if the "address name" field is c...

Date Issues
I have used one of the methods (via a function) posted on this forum to calculate a date that is 2 days prior to the start date. I called out this function "PrevWorkingDay" from a query. The date calculation appears to be ok. The problem that I am having is setting a date parameter base on this PrevDate on the query. The PrevDate does not seem to be a acting like a date should be. When the date parameter is >=12/25/2007, there is no result. When the date parameter is >=#12/25/2007#, the result is only for dates >=12/25/2007 but excludes 2008 (there are supposed t...

Address Labels
How to create address labels in excel Kristin, If you have the label information in a table its easiest to use that as your data source for a mail merge in Word.
