Default AddressBook

My Address Book is empty but my "contacts" are in order. How can I import or
copy my contacts to my Address Book?

Advice please someone!
Thanks

The "Addressbook" is merely a VIEW of your Contacts folder - it doesn't
exist otherwise.
Your version of Outlook would be REALLY helpful and also some details of
what you did just prior to this not working.

Exact same problem: Outlook version 12.0.6514.5000; Win7 64 bit.

Your answer is curious inasmuch as my Address Book is entirely blank but I
can display my contacts by clicking on the appropriate tab, but when I go to
create a new E-mail and click on "To" my Address Book is entirely blank. I
then open up Contacts, find the addressee's name and copy and past into the
"To" field.

I believe my Outlook thinks it is part of an Exchange Server setup. I am
just a simple desktop user. My big concern is that when I upgrade to OL 2010,
this characteristic will be transferred to 2010 and my Address Book will
still be blank.

Thanks.

Nope. Outlook doesn't "think" that. Your Outlook Address Book service that
creates the Address Book view from your Contacts folder is damaged and the
only way to fix it in Outlook 2007 is to create a new mail profile.

Please excuse the poor choice of words. I never believed that OL "thought"
anything. What I should have, perhaps, said was that the configuration for my
version of OL might be that of a client-server relationship, i.e., pointing
elsewhere for its Address Book contents (an Exchange Server which in my case
doesn't exist?). I have created new mail profiles several times with no
success but will try once yet again. The bigger question is that if I upgrade
to OL 2010, will these parameters carry over. Maybe I should give the demo OL
2010 a shot to see what happens.

I realize that.

elsewhere for its Address Book contents (an Exchange Server which in my case

The Address Book service can include any folder in your mail profile that
contains contacts, but it should include, at a minimum, a reference to your
default Contacts folder.

The bigger question is that if I upgrade
to OL 2010, will these parameters carry over. Maybe I should give the demo
OL
2010 a shot to see what happens.


The mail profile is kept in the registry, so uninstalling one version of
Outlook and installing another shouldn't affect it and the new Outlook version
will reference the same data.
