Solved: Address Label Printing without Windows Address Book

Q: Solved: Address Label Printing without Windows Address Book

In the past I've maintained my address book using the built-in Address Book utility that came with Windows. Once each year, I would import my Address Book (.WAB) file into Outlook 2003/XP. (I don't use Outlook for email.) Then I would use the Mail Merge feature in Word 2003/XP to make and print address labels on standard Avery label sheets to simplify address of my Christmas cards.

Since I'm now using Windows 7, and the familiar Address Book utility is no longer available, how can I print my address labels? I have both Windows Address Book (.WAB) and Comma-Separated Values (.CSV) files that contain my address book data. So, I guess I need to know two things:
Which program or utility (preferably free) can I use to print my address labels.
How do I import my address data into that program?

If it helps, I am already a user of Gmail and Google Drive. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Jim,
Assuming you still have Microsoft Office (any version) you can use the Word mail merge feature and use your .csv file as your data source - no other programs necessary. What version of Office are you using?

I have been unable to insert an address from my Yahoo email address book for some time now and I have decided to ask for help.

All I am doing is opening Yahoo mail and trying to compose a new email to send to someone who is already in my contacts. When I click "to:" or "insert address" my address book shows up. But when I place a check mark and try to "insert checked contacts" I go to this address on a blank page: http://us.mc1612.mail.yahoo.com/mc/kioskHandler

I see that this has been asked before but no one had replied and I can't find the answer doing a search.

Can anyone help?

A:Solved: Yahoo email unable to insert address from address book

Concerning my post above: I turned on my older XP computer and I had no problem with inserting an address from the Yahoo! address book.

I compared all my settings in both computers and noticed that I had different settings relating to how pop-ups are handled. XP reminded me that the address book takes the form of a pop-up. On my Vista I had pop-ups opening up (?) in a webpage. That is the page which came up blank. After I have corrected the settings, I no longer have a problem.

I am using Outlook 2003 and run Windows XP.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list. I would like to be able to do it withot the extra step.

I have a couploe of gonzo big Contact lists in Outlook XP. I need to be able to print one of them out, 446 contacts, double sided paper, each letter starting its own section, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2".

I tried on two different WinXP-SP2 computers, home and work,, two printers at work, HP 5150 inkjet and Samsung ML-2010 laser printer, and one printer at home, HP 5650 inkjet. All three printers have a print double-sided option.

At work on the work computer, the 5150 just printed blotchy black garbage, no actual letters.
The ML-2010 would print one side and then go into paroxisms of pain and printer error, so I could never get to the second side.

At home on the 5650 and the home computer, I got the best result, which was most letters printed out fine, each starting its own section. But near the middle, the pages got screwed up so that for example, pg 52 was on the opposite side of the sheet of paper from pg 46.

Any ideas?

My computer is running windows xp sp3. I have outlook express 6 and windows address book installed.
My problem is the I cannot open the address book (never had a problem before), and cannot access my contacts even through outlook express 6. I get these error messages when i try to open:

Outlook Express 6:
"The address Book failed to load. Outlook Express is incorrectly configured, please re-install"

Address Book:
"Unable to open the address book. The Address Book may not be installed properly"

I used to be able to open the address book fine before, but not anymore. I cant access any of my contacts through these programs, but I am able to view my contacts through 'Microsoft Office Outlook 2003' only.

Any way I can fix this? I did search for a solution before posting here, but most of the solutions I found were for Windows 95 and 98.

The main reason for me to use my address book is that is allowed me to transfer my contacts to my phone via bluetooth directly from inside the program. Since I got the iPhone, I havent bothered to open the address book, but I do have another phone that I want to copy my contacts to.

A:[SOLVED] importing a mac address book file to windows

Hey Moby

OE Address Book> File> Import> Other Address Book and you'll see several entries listed in there one of them is "Text File (Comma Separated Values)" That's the one, highlight it and Import.

and then I see this ......

Launch Outlook Express.
From the File menu, select the option Import.
Select the option Import contacts from a text file.
A standard open file dialog will be displayed. Select the exported address book file.
The wizard will show how the data in the exported address book matches the data fields for Outlook Express.
If the fields do not match, you have probably selected the wrong file type when running the Address Book Exporter.
Click on the Import button to start adding the address book entries.
A confirmation dialog will be displayed when the import is complete

scroll down the page 2/3rds of the way and you'll see it.

However, it isn't linked to my Outlook address book so that whenever I made a change to my addresses in Outlook, it'll reflect in the Windows address book.

My problem is that my extremely ancient laptop died (wouldn't power up - guy in the 'computer fixing shop' said it wasn't worth repairing) and I hadn't backed it up properly for a very long time (yeah, I know I'm totally stupid). A friend has removed the hard drive and put it in a caddy which I've connected to my new laptop (which has Windows 7 and IE8 on it if that's relevant) and I've retrieved almost everything but the one thing that I can't find is my address book/contacts list from Outlook. In fact I can't even find Outlook. I've looked in program files (was that right?) but only Outlook Express is in there - it does have MS Office (which I think Outlook is part of although I could be wrong) but I can't find anything in there that looks even vaguely English.
