    Importing address book (Outlook 2002)

    I am having a heck of a time trying to import an address book from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002 from Office XP. I've followed the Help instructions several times in both programs and have gotten nowhere. As far as I can tell, the address book in OE6 is a .wab file and when I go throught the Import process in Outlook it finds the file (I know this because it tells me that it sees 82 entries which is how many are in the address book) in OE6 but something prevents it from migrating them to Outlook. I've exported the .wab file to a floppy but I've been unable to successfully get Outlook to find it there. I worked on it for two hours yesterday until I couldn't take it anymore. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Troy

    Have you tried exporting it as a text file, then importing it?

    Also be sure to click the Map Fields button, to be sure you're matching all the fields from Express with the appropriate one in Outlook.
