    You personal address book could not be opened (outlook 2000)

    I have set up a personal address book on my home drive. On logging into outlook and trying to access this file I get the error message 'Your personal address book has been opened for use by another computer. You will not be able to use your personal address book with this application until the other user closes the application currently using the personal address book'.

    Try re-booting - that should remove any other user, real or imagined.

    Otherwise, find the pab in explorer, right_click and select Properties. Check it does not have its "Read Only" attribute set.
    (If you have copied a .pab or .pst from a CD backup it will be set to Read Only)

    The file is not read only and i've checked the security permissions are correct on it. I'm not sure if my workstation has been rebooted but i'll give this a go.
