Error while importing my CSV address book
#1
Hi,

I received my key and started to use OE with my Windows 7 SP1 32 bits.

Everything fine with the email download.

One problem: my address book is a CSV file, with aprox. 100 contacts. I went to the import tool, selected "text file (comma separated values)", than my CSV file, but as soon as the process started, appeared an error message saying "error while importing the address book".

What do you suggest?

Thanks

have you tried to replace wab file instead of importing csv file?

At XP, I can only export my address book as CSV. So at Win 7, when I import the CSV, it allows to select the file, but the process stops at this first block of progress, as seen on the image.

I did the following test, maybe the result helps you to solve my problem: At Windows 7, I created a contact with only first and last name, and email. After that, I tried to export the address book, chose the option "text file (CSV)", and it didn't complete the task, here is the image of the error:

i really connot read that error because it is not in english. But, you can simply backup your wab file from XP and copy it (replacing the existng blank one) on new windows.

that wab file is located on XP:
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\<username>.wab


On 7 and newer:

Code:
C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Address Book\<USERNAME>.wab


The wab file name must be same when replacing, so if the wab file that you copied from old computer has different name (username), please rename it like the new one before replacing.
