    Missing Contacts (Outlook XP)

    I've just got a new PC which has Office XP on it. Copied over my Outlook pst file from the old machine which had Outlook 2000
    I can see all my messages and contacts, but when I create a new message, my Contacts list is empty <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>
    I've tried adding a test contact, and it goes somewhere but not into my Contacts - I know it's somewhere as if I try to create another one with the same name, Outlook displays a warning
    Can anyone suggest how I can get my contact back <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    You need to go into Tools-Accounts and add it as an Outlook address book, I think.

    I ended up having to remove all Outlook address books, and then adding the real one back in.

    I've since uninstalled and gone back to Outlook 2K, so I can't really be sure of the menus; wish I could help more.

    Thanks for the response
    I went to Tools / Email Accounts,
    selected View or change existing directories or address books
    then for the item Outlook Address Book selected Change and clicked Remove Address Book
    then back to the Contact folder and right click on its Properties, select the Outlook Address Book tab and tick the box Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book
    That did it <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>
