Could someone please tell me where the Windows address book file (containing
all my address info etc) is located. Can't seem to find it.

Thanks.

The Address Book file is located in:
C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Application Data\Address Book

Go to Start > Run and type: "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\wab.exe"
and hit enter to launch Address Book.

If you were to click the Start button you would see an Item called "search"
by opening this and performing a search using ***.wab it would have guided you
to that file.
something to remember the next time you need to find a file.

You will probably have to set Search to include hidden files and folders.

Address Book: Help>About will reveal the location, Bill.

In WindowsXP, the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as
hidden. To view these files in Explorer, you must enable Show Hidden Files
and Folders under Start>Control Panel>Folder Options>View.

I may or may not know what I'm saying, but if I
have nothing to say, that's what I say!
