Windows 7: Transfer Outlook Address Book

Win 7

There is a god afterall.
I brought my laptop into my place of work and tried to connect to the internet.
It didn't work for various reasons.
But then, all of a sudden, my Outlook address book worked (!)

I cleaned it up and all works fine.
I have no idea what happened; the problem just suddenly fixed itself.

A Google search on "outlook address book missing" shows I'm not the only one with the problem.

Thanks for all the help.

Make sure you have BOTH outlook address book and Personal address book added into Outlook

On the XP machine

Office 2003 > File> EXPORT to a file > PST > click on your CONTACTS > save to a folder > Finsh


On the Windows 7 machine

Outlook 2007

File>IMPORT from a file > PST> choose the file/folder you saved to > Finish

All done
