    Address Book (Word XP)

    Is there a way I can change where Word looks for the address book it is going to use? I have the address book on a custom toolbar and linked through a DataPrompter add-in. I am trying to test using Outlook and Outlook Express address books, but it appears that since Outlook is installed on my system, Word only looks in the Outlook Address Books even if I change my default e-mail program to Outlook Express.

    Re: Address Book (Word XP)

    From a quick search at microsoft.com, it appears that Word does not directly read the Outlook Express address book, even when Outlook is not present. I'm not sure if anyone has found a way to make it work; I didn't see good suggestions.
