Outlook 2003 contacts to Outlook 2000

Q: Outlook 2003 contacts to Outlook 2000

I need to save my MS Outlook Contacts from my PC at work (using Outlook 2003) to my PC at home (using Outlook 2000). I know how to use File> New> Outlook Data File> Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst)> OK to start, but that doesn't populate the new directory (or file or whatever it is) with the contacts.

How do I copy/paste, translate, whatever the contacts into that new directory?
Please reply to [email protected].

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

We've purchased a new laptop and are using Office 07 now, Windows XP, instead of the old office 03. Regarding Outlook, when I tried to save the old .pst file(Outlook 03) and then import old emails and contacts, the emails imported very easily into Outlook 07. However, none of the contacts were imported. Is there a simple way to export or save Outlook 2003 contacts to a file that can then be imported into Outlook 2007 on a separate computer??

I have reinstalled OL2003 and my account was imported from Outlook Express. However, I cannot figure out how to get my contact folder to show in my address book when I am looking for an address to send an email. The Address Book properties shows 'Contacts' as the address source, the first list to be searched and checked the option for it to be the contact folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using Outlook 2003, Part of MS Office Professional Edition 2003, which has the capability of having multiple, separate & complete email addresses, each functioning in their own profile.

E.g. I open Outlook and it gives me a drop-down box to choose which email I want to go to, say email1 or email2.

Email1 has 2 "Contacts" areas defined.
1st problem is how to combine and synch these two. I don't want two.

Email2 as 1 "Contacts" area.
2nd problem is to combine the contacts from Email1 with Email2.

I thought these were *.pab files, but a search for *.pab comes up empty.
I do find multiple *.pst files

Any suggestions?

I know this is probably easy but I was curious what the instructions are to convert 2000 .pst to 2003 to take advantage of the available space. I have a user who is working on the 2000 limit and need to upgrade.

Due to some incompatability with 2003, I am thinking of installing an older version of outlook.

Will there be any problems with just installing it "on top" of office 2003?

Or should I uninstall office and then install Outlook 2000 1st, then custom install office 2003 without outlook? What about a different directory for each version? Kind of like what is required to install Access 97 and Access 200 on the same PC?

I want to consolidate info from multiple contacts with the same name ,into one contact. I have many contacts with partial info for the same person. For example: Contact Joe Smith has a home phone and an email. another separate contact Joe Smith has a cell phone # and a business address. Another separate contact Joe Smith has a home address and a fax#. I want to take all the info in all the separate contacts with the same name and consolidate them into one contact entry. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Too Many Contacts in outlook 2000

I have Outlook XP (2002), and the Help file has nothing on this. It has a merge feature when you create a new contact with exactly the same name or email address as an existing one, offering to merge the info on the new contact into the existing one, but that's no help with 2 or more existing contacts for the same person.

I bet there is a solution, either on the MS KLnowledge Base or elsewhere on the web. Perhaps the solution is a macro someone created that you can use.

My wife and I are on the road, volunteering at various national parks and such, to return home ... I'm not sure when, but the year will not have a 5 in it.

On shorter trips, we have lugged my tower computer, monitor, etc. along, but for a year-long hegira (we travel in a Toyota Corolla) we decided to get a laptop. Everything is working well except I somehow failed to move the contacts for Outlook. Fortunately I had a DVD with just about everything from the old computer; unfortunately, in trying to go over to the .pst file from the DVD I managed to completely delete the address book. I now have no address book at all.

How can I recreate my address book and import the contacts from the backup contacts file without deleting all the other stuff (sent items, deleted items, calendar full of grandchildrens' birthdays, appointments, etc.)?



A:Outlook 2003 Contacts

On your laptop search for your existing .PST file and rename it to something else. Next, take the .PST file from your backup DVD and copy it to the same directory as your original laptop .PST file. Rename the copied backup .PST to what your original laptop .PST file was called. Open Outlook and all your Outlook settings, mail, etc. from your backup will be loaded. Next, click FILE --> IMPORT/EXPORT --> EXPORT TO FILE and select the format for the export (.PST)

After selecting .PST as the file type, select your Contacts directory as the source of the export. Next export your CONTACTS to wherever you want. Exit Outlook and delete the current .PST file (the backup) and rename the original .PST back to what it was originally called. Now you can start Outlook again and the original mail and settings will be reloaded. Now you can click FILE --> IMPORT/EXPORT to import your backup contacts .PST

I accidentally deleted all of my contacts when I did a sync with my blackberry.

My work email is not on exchange server so that option is out.

I found my contacts in my deleted file and attempted to move them all at once back to my contacts. When I did that I inadvertently moved them to the journal. Once I realzed I X'd out and was promted with the usual radio buttons and question - are you sure you want to cancel this or you do not want to save. Anyway once that closes they are no longer in the deleted folder and I have no idea where they went. I checked the Journal (obviously since I chose not to finish the entry they would be there) anyway and of course not there either.

Please can someone help me, I am lost without my contacts. Thank you.


A:Outlook 2003 Contacts - Help

Either you dropped them somewhere else, or they stayed in Deleted. If you happen to have your Outlook to Empty the deleted items on Exit ( in Options/Other tab) might be out of luck.

Try doing an Advanced search for a unique contact name, select to search for contacts, if you find any it will show the folder they are in.

I know of no shortcut or "simple" way to to this, but a VBA procedure could be easily written. A few questions:

what version of Outlook?
approx how many individual emails are involved?
does the Inbox have subfolders?
if a mailitem has multiple addressees, do we care about those other addressees?
what should be done with the list of email addresses? Build a distribution list? Build a spreadsheet file? Dump to Word? Something else?

I am thinking of changing my ISP and am dreading the notifying of change of email address. Remember last one..... shudder.....

Is there a way of easily grouping all contacts?

As a silver, rather incompetent user, I would appreciate any suggestions.


A:MS Outlook 2003 - Contacts

I use Outlook 2003. You can create a group and include whoever you want in that. But there is no way of automatically including everyone, for example, in a mass message such as to notify of new e-mail address.

To create a group, select new e-mail entry and then "distribution list". You can select who you want in that list.

I maintain an e-mail list for a club and the "distribution list" is how I group all the club's e-mail addresses together. However some ISP's have a limit on the number of addressees in one e-mail. I have Roadrunner and I have three separate distribution lists so I can cover all the club members and when I send out notices I have to send three separate messages (one for each distribution list group).

But, as this will be a one time notification its just as easy to just manually do it with e-mails with multiple "BCC" addresses in each e-mail. Use the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) so that the addressees only see their e-mail address, not everyone's.

Outlook usually files my contacts with the last name first (Smith, Joe for example). But sometimes when I get a contact forwarded to me by a co-worker, Outlook files it first name first. This is kind of annoying when I'm searching for a contact using last names. When I open the contact, the "file as.." pull down menu doesn't list last name first (Smith, Joe).

Any ideas?

I am trying to import Contacts from an Excel sheet into Outlook 2000. I have created the Excel sheet according to the required Outllok 2000 format. I have an additional field "EXTENSION" (which contains the extension number to the Phone # of a contact). This "EXTENSION" field is not available by default in Outlook 2000, so I created a User Defined Field in Outlook.
The problem is that I am not able to Map the "EXTENSION" field from the Excel sheet to the field that I have created in Outlook coz it doesnot appear in the available fields when I try to map the fields.
Can any one tell me how I can import the "EXTENSION" field.

(Hope I havent confused you)


A:Importing Contacts into Outlook 2000

I have had exactly the same problem importing. I have a vendor database of 1000 vendors. I created a searchable "Keyword" column to import into Outlook. Outlook shows Keywords in the Outlook map, but there is no real field if you check a contact form. So I tired other fields. Since I have no other use for "Assistant"s Name ( who has assistants these days?) I used it because it worked. So, Now I select the database, click on Tools|Advanced Find|Advanced Tab|Name Fields| Assistant's Name. I enter the search word in "Values", click "Find Now", click yes to the next dialogue box, and up come my results. It is really a lot simpler and quicker than it sounds, because I do it alot.

So, just find a field that will work and that you do not need for something else.

Was wondering if anyone else has run across this problem. The environment is a simple peer-to-peer network. My workstation is win2k pro. I share my contacts with my secretary and she in on the network and her workstation in running win2k. We both have OUTLOOK 2000, the last version I believe that allows calender and contact sharing and synch'ing.
Anyway what happens is if I am looking for a contact that say starts with 'W' and I go and click 'W', sometimes they will not all show up but I know it's in my contacts file. So what I do is do a find and then it shows up.
I am looking on the msn support site...Just wondering if anyone has had this problem before.

A:Outlook 2000 - Some contacts not displaying

I'll presume you are using "delegates" to share contacts.

Items marked "private" will not show up unless the adequate permissions have been granted to the delegate.

Another way this problem mainfests itself comes from using "views." For instance, if you are looking at a telephone list type view of your contacts then contacts that don't have a telephone number entered will not show up. However, if you search for them <CTRL + ALT + F> then you can use find to make visible contacts that are excluded from a particular "view."

Good luck

You have to set the properties of each address book to last name sort order if you have more than one address book. You might also want to look at the properties for the Contacts folder in Tools > Options > Contact Options if you are using contacts as an address book.

I have a friend who has a laptop that was joined to a domain but hasnt been for some time. She was still logging in with the domain credentials and using outlook with her web based email accounts and had a lot of contacts in outlook. Well the problem is that I removed her from the domain because it was no longer necessary not knowing she had contacts that needed to be saved. The domain user profile/folder is still in documents and settings. I'm trying to figure out if the .pst would still be recoverable, where it is and if its any different because it was a domain account even though her computer was not on the network.

It sounds to me like if she had access to the contacts without actually being on the domain, then they must reside locally on the computer. Have you done a search for *.pst yet?

Does anyone know a way to automatically mark contacts as read. I know you can do this with emails and I know you can just right click on the folder and click mark all as read, but I don't want to have to do that. I have a global contacts folder in a public folder and will be updating this frequently and don't want users to constantly see a number next to the contacts folder showing how many are unread. I've searched all over but all I can find are solutions involving what I mentioned earlier and nothing that will make outlook behave how I want it to. It doesn't even need to mark the contacts as read, I just want to get rid of the bold name and the blue number in parentheses next to the contact folder name. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I recently transferred email data (including address book info) from a Windows XP system using Outlook Express, to a Windows 7 system using Outlook 2003.

In Outlook 2003, I have two .pst files, each with its own Contacts list. Both lists are available from the Outlook 2003 Address Book.

When I receive an email from someone, I can't add the sender's email address to either Contacts database. I right click the sender's name and get a cut/copy/paste context menu, but no option to add the sender.

If I reply to an email, the sender's name appears in the To: box, but not their actual email address.

I have searched online without success seeking a fix for this problem.

Can anyone help me with this?

I have managed to export Windows Contacts as vCards and I have found out how to load these into Outlook, BUT only one at a time.

Is there any way I can either

1. Import multiple vcards into Outllook


2. Simply transfer Windows Contacts to Outlook by either exporting from Windows Contact or Importing into Outlook?

Or am I asking too much of two (in)compatible Microsoft programs?

A:Duplicate Contacts in Outlook (2003)

Hi there,

You should be able to use some code like this ...
Sub DeleteDups_Contacts()

Dim MyColl As Object
Dim ct As MAPIFolder, ci As ContactItem
Dim ns As NameSpace
Dim strFirst As String
Dim strTmp As String

Set MyColl = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
Set ns = ThisOutlookSession.Session
Set ct = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

On Error Resume Next
For Each ci In ct.Items
If Not (MyColl.Exists(ci.FullName)) Then
MyColl.Add ci.FullName, "1"
strTmp = strTmp & ci.FullName & vbNewLine
' ci.Delete
End If

MsgBox "Deleted:" & vbNewLine & Trim(strTmp)
Set MyColl = Nothing

End Sub
To install, hit Alt + F11 | Insert | Module, paste on right. Put cursor in routine, press F5. Note I commented out the delete line, I'd run it once with it, then if you're sure the message is correct, uncomment the line (take out the ' sign) and run it.

Hi lawyermom
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Do you have more than one Contacts folder in Outlook?

Open the Address Book in Outlook, are there folders or groups listed under Contacts?
If so, look in each to see if the missing Contacts appear.
If Contacts appear in other folders, you can Copy them to the main folder.

When using the To: button, you can also click the drop down arrow and switch to the other folders (if they exist) to select those Contacts.

Let us know what you find.

An advantage of having Outlook configured as Corporate/Workgroup, is the ability to create additional profiles in Outlook. If errors start occurring in Outlook, you can create another profile to see if the errors occur in the new profile, as well.

Hi kids. Ever since I upgraded to Win2k, my Outlook 2k won't show my contacts subfolders in that To/CC/BCC window. Which also means that it can't validate a contact's name when I just type it into the To/CC/BCC lines if that contact happens to be in a subfolder.

I do not like this. And I couldn't punch that magic MS KB set of buttons to get a reply (if indeed there is one out there) as to what might be going on.

May be a worthwhile side note that my Win2k is in French, and my MS Office is in English, and yet this To/CC/BCC window actually opens with French captions... Strange...

Search for the .wab files. This is the windows address book. It's usually in the Windows folder, but it may be best to do a search. There may be more than one. When you find them you should be able to put them on a floppy or burn to a disk if too large.

Once upgraded to XP, just replace the address book under her user name in the Documents and Settings folder. You may also need to do a search for the location.

If you start Outlook 2003 with one of the other Profiles do you get the same behavior when trying to Export the Contacts?
If not, I would stop using the original Profile and start using one of the other Profiles.

Open the Personal Folders (.pst file) the original Profile was using, into the new Profile.
In Outlook 2003:
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Browse to the location of the .pst file and select/highlight the .pst file.

The Personal Folder (.pst file) should then appear in Outlook.

Hi all, first post Not the first time I've use this place though - lots of useful info here.

I've got a problem with a client's Outlook 2003. If she goes to Contacts in the Navigation Bar, it only shows 'Personal Contacts' which is a subfolder of her Contacts folder. If she wants to see her business contacts, which are just contained in the 'Contacts' folder, she has to go to the Folder List, and click 'Contacts' there in her mailbox. It's not a massive problem, but it would be nice if we could get it working the way it should.

HI, I have a question re Outlook 2003's address book access while composing an email. I know Outlook uses a cache/buffer scheme to save Contacts entries once you have used them for the first time. Enter the first char or two and it offers suggestions. Problem is after a C drive format and XP reinstalll, my cache is gone. To send an email to someone already in my Contacts list, I have to: 1) leave my new email, 2) open Contacts, 3) search and find the person of interest, 4) place the email addr in paste buffer, 5) go back to the email and paste it in TO field. There has to be a better way since many lesser email programs do not require this painful route. I know I only have to do this once since it's now in the cache for future access. Is there a better way ???

A:Solved: Outlook 2003 Contacts List

In previous versions of Outlook you could go Tools > E-mail accounts > View/Change Existing Directories/Address books > Outlook Address Book > Change > and then set your preference there. Not sure if it's the same in 2003.

I originally posted this earlier in what I now believe was probably the wrong forum category so my apologies to TG for having to repost here Feel free to delete it from the Web amp Email forum 2000-2002: Sensitivity Issue Outlook Contacts if anyone has the power to do so Thanks My company is using Outlook 2000-2002: Contacts Sensitivity Issue a program that allows us to view each others contacts calendars etc not Exchange After having issues with not being able to see ALL of each others contacts we came to find out that it was due to the fact that many of the contacts sensitivity were set to quot private quot Because there are literally thousands of contacts between all of the computers that need to be changed to quot normal quot is there any way possible that this can be done all in one shot on each computer individually of course instead of manually doing it for each quot private quot contact I really don t have the time patience or inclination to sit here and do it one-by-one I appreciate my sanity Thanks in advance for your help nbsp

After working perfectly, Outlook will no longer respond to search for entries in the Contacts folders from the empty box where one normally enters a contact name.

I have run "repair Office 2000 Professional," uninstalled and resinstalled, but I am unable to run a search for a contact except by using the Find Feature.

The change seemed to have occured when I synched my laptop to my PC. (The PC works fine, the problem occurs only on the laptop).

As the search contacts is a critical function, I will appreciate a solution. Thanks!

You can try going under Help and clicking on Detect and Repair to try and fix any problems. Sounds like you have a corrupt file. Have you done an update to Office 2003 lately? Just wondering if that might have caused the problem.

Hi there,

I am using Outlook 2003 and I have many contacts that have multiple email addresses and I can not seem to find the option to allow me to specify which email address is the default for my contacts that have more than one email address.

Any help is appreciated.

I am having an issue with my contacts in Outlook 2003. Whenever i click on a "contacts" link (to add an email address) it pops up an error, and tells me to look in the help file. I have looked through the help file and i have been unable to find anything about it. Here is a screenshot of what it looks like:

Where is the setting for this? I've looked all over the program!
