First an apology -- I posted this a while back then completely forgot to check back...
Too Many Address Books!
A "Windows Address Book" (Program: wab.exe; data in "my-name".wab) comes with Outlook Express.
A "Personal Address Book" (pab) is associated with Windows Messaging, data in addressbook.pab
A personal.pst address book seems to be related to Outlook (which I used to have installed, but no more.)
Word 97 pulls up the pab, OE pulls up wab
(Word97 USED to pull up the personal.pst address book when Outlook was installed. It is now unreadable by anything.)
Is there any way to teach WORD to use the wab so all this stuff gets coordinated?
Is there any way to read my (old) addresses in personal.pst, short of reinstalling Outlook?
