    Default profile when inserting from address book (Word XP SP3)

    When inserting an address in a document or envelope by clicking on the Address Book icon, a window asks which profile. My address book is Outlook Contacts, so I click Default, tick it and then access the address book. No problem. If I again click on the icon I get an empty Outlook Address Book, so the Default has not been remembered. This continues till I close Word. Next time I use it, it again does not remember the default.
    My Outlook XP is Internet mode and the Contacts and Address book work fine.
    How can I get the Default to be remembered?
    Thanks for any advice.

    I think the only way to avoid the "Select Profile" dialog is to have Outlook already running when you click the "Insert Address" button. Word will then automatically use the same profile that Outlook is using. See for example this newsgroup post.
