Convert your Personal Outlook Address Book to a Outlook Contacts folder


In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, you can no longer create new Personal Address Books (Personal Address Book: A customizable address book used to store personal e-mail addresses you use frequently. However, Contacts offers more advanced features for this function. Personal Address Book files have a .pab extension and can be copied to disk.). However, you can import old Personal Address Books and convert them to Outlook Contacts, which can be displayed in the Outlook Address Book (Address Book: The collection of address books that you can use to store names, e-mail addresses, fax numbers, and distribution lists. The Address Book may contain a Global Address List, an Outlook Address Book, and a Personal Address Book.).
Outlook Contacts provide flexibility and customization that are not available in the Personal Address Book. For example, you can associate birthdays, several types of phone numbers, anniversaries, Web site addresses, and other custom information with your contacts.

1. On the File menu, click Import and Export.
