I'm still not having any luck - perhaps this background info will help you understand the problems I'm having.
I backed up to CD-RW all my old PC data(Win98) and am having many problems transfering,importing,exporting, c&p'ing or whatever to OEXP on my new PC(WinXP).
First you should know that I always deleted the ` files that appeared on my desktop (I think I now know that was a BIG mistake!). Does this mean that I will not be able to retreive the Address Book that I was using that I backed up to the CD?
Somehow I now have 3 Address Book .wab files sitting on the C drive and the .dbx files are also there - some in a backup folder, some not.
I did manage to get one Address Book imported into OE, but it's an OLD version(2003).
When I tried to send the .dbx file to OEXP I get a 'create new message' window with the .dbx file as an attachment, so I sent it to myself, but I can't open it because it tells me it's an unknown file type and the error message reads: "this folder does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel".
I don't know where this is and anyway wouldn't know what association to create.
I really need your expert help and appreciate your being there for newbies like myself. (I did check your link and others, but still can't find help I need.
Thanks in advance,
