    The entry point if File | Import and Export. This starts a wizard. You have to have the import/export feature installed. I don't remember, but think it's not installed by default.

    Thanks. It wasn't installed, but is now!

    However, it only seems to offer to dump the folders on my drive (such as the contacts folder). What I want is the "Global Address Book". It would seem that I can manually shift people from the address book to the contacts list, but there are about 2000 of them.

    Is there a quicker way? Does anyone know the structure of the Address property of the AddressEntry object?

    Copy the contents of the GAL to a PAB - instructions here at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.slipstick.com/exs/portagal.htm>http://www.slipstick.com/exs/portagal.htm</A>
    Create a new Contacts folder.
    Import the new PAB into the new Contacts folder.
    Export the contents on the new Contacts folder.

    Or:

    and then export the Contacts.

    Hi folks, Thanks for the suggestions - these have all looked good, only to come unstuck. Sorry.

    When I copy some-thing to a Personal Address Book - it goes into the contacts book instead. Then if I try and dump that, I still only get the EX address, rather than the SMTP address. Is this something I can fiddle with settings?

    I have tried the code snippet from further down the list, but it reffers to a MAPI object, which I don't seem to have available (just MAPIFolder). I will keep tring as I'm sure this can be done, but its most frustrating!
