Save contacts without opening outlook?

Q: Save contacts without opening outlook?

Is it possible to save outlook contacts without opening the program?

My mom DLed a virus that has crippled everything, and since the computer needed to be reformatted anyway, I want to just save her files & start over.

I basically can't use any programs except folders, otherwise I get spammed with alerts & BS.

Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Save contacts without opening outlook?

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.)

A: Save contacts without opening outlook?

Unless the virus directly affected them, you should be able to copy the Outlook files containing your mom's Outlook contacts lists, e-mails, etc. to another drive without opening Outlook. The exact locations and file names used will depend on the versions of Windows and Outlook that are being used.

Hi 
I have Outlook 365 on my desktop for emails , calendars and contacts
I use Icloud for Windows to sync my Calendar and Contacts from iphone to desktop or from desktop to iphone.
Was seamless until a few days ago when trying to edit a contact on Outlook it would not allow me to save it
Error message was "Your changes cannot be saved because you don't have permission to modify some or all of the items in this folder. Do you want to save a copy of the item in the default
folder for the item?
I can edit the contact on iphone and it updates though to Outlook on desktop.
Calendar appointments (new and amended/edited) are seamlessly working both ways.
A new contact inputted onto Outlook icloud contact will save but if you then try to add a new number or note then get the above error message.
Please advise

Hi, I was hoping you could help me with something. I have lists of names and emails in excel spreadsheets and I have to upload them in to an outlook address book. So i have to make them contacts. The problem is only some will upload and save. For example there are more than 1,000 emails and only 400 will save as contacts. It gives an error message saying there was a problem saving them. I researched the problem and it says there might be an issue with the format of number 301 so it said to delete it which I did but it still does not work

Hi all,

I have a quick question:

I need to create a contact from a message. The way I do it is, I right-click the name and select Save as contact. This works great but it just gets saved to my default personal contacts.

What I want it to do is save to a contact folder I've created inside my default folder....is there a way to specify which contact folder it gets saved to?

A:Outlook 2000 Contacts files, where and how to save

Search for the .wab files. This is the windows address book. It's usually in the Windows folder, but it may be best to do a search. There may be more than one. When you find them you should be able to put them on a floppy or burn to a disk if too large.

Once upgraded to XP, just replace the address book under her user name in the Documents and Settings folder. You may also need to do a search for the location.

Hi,
When you start typing an email address in Outlook 2007 it shows options to autocomplete the address from all the thousands of previous email addresses you've used in the past, not only those ones you've saved in your contacts list.

I need a solution to save all those 'extra' email addresses that show up.
I deal with sales and in one day I can send up to 1200 emails and saving each one would just weigh me down time wise.

If there's a program that will save these addresses please let me know, thanks.

You can try going under Help and clicking on Detect and Repair to try and fix any problems. Sounds like you have a corrupt file. Have you done an update to Office 2003 lately? Just wondering if that might have caused the problem.

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hello, I have multiple issues regarding address books and contacts. I am currently trying to organize multiple address books on my Win 2000 desktop(outlook express) my laptop XP (outlook 2007) and my IPhone 3G. They are a mess because of old cell phone backups combined with address book entries. I now have multiple entries for numerous contacts etc.
After organizing all these contacts/address books I would like to import to my new Win 7 desktop (outlook 2010 beta) and retire my Win 2000 desktop. These are all stand alone computers that are not networked other than through a router to share broadband access.
I tried searching for software to help combine and organize all three of these but had no luck.
I then tried manually updating all my contacts on my laptop and Iphone but I ran into a glich of sorts. After making the changes on my Iphone and doing a ITunes sync, some of the contacts disappeared. Right now I am not sure how many, but I noticed a few of the ones I use alot are gone on both my laptop and Iphone.
I do not subscribe to or use the "mobile me" feature.
I have spent quite a bit of time searching the net without finding a solution.
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!

In Outlook 2003, it was right there underneath Calendar, which, by the way, is also missing from the Folder/Tree view.

OS: XP home

I recently re-installed my entire computer, incl. MS Office 2002.
When restoring the .pst files, something went wrong. Maybe I needed to re-install more than just .pst files, maybe it screwed up because I renamed the back-up files?

Either way, the problem is that the Contact folder is not displayed in the Outlook Address Book, and I cannot manage to make it so.
I tried the following:
- Right-clicking the Contacts folder, Properties, Outlook Address Book tab. The checkbox "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is greyed out, so I cannot check it.
- Tools, E-mail accounts, View or change existing directories or address books. Outlook Address Book - MAPI is listed (as only one). When pressing Change..., I get an error message: "This E-mail account cannot be configured. Please run Outlook and choose this profile before attempting to make changes to it." There is only one profile (I had 2 before re-installation, but no longer needed the second).
If I try to Add... an Additional Outlook Address Book, or a Personal Address Book, I get the error message "The account you have added is not fully configured. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly."

Nice, but how to re-configure it correctly??? I prefer not having to re-install the program...

I tried to Remove the listed Outlook Address Book, but then could still not Add... one (same error message), so the originally listed one re-appeared.

What can I do?

I have a problem when I import my contacts from my desktop Outlook into my laptop Outlook. The way I do this is to export them from my desktop machine onto a flash drive, then I move that to my laptop and import them. The problem is that once completed, my laptop Outlook sorts the list by the first name, rather than by the last name as my desktop does.

My list is about 5K names, and while I do have a few occurrences where there are a couple of people with the same last name, there are FAR more with similar first names. You wouldn't believe how many Dave's I have!

I have gone into the "Tools, Preferences, Contact Options" on the laptop, and it IS set for "sort by last name."

Both computers are tunning XP Pro, and Outlook 2003.

How can I move my Outlook Express contacts (and messages) to Outlook?
I tried the export/import functions under the tool menue on the Contact List toolbar but Don't understand the instructions.
 

A:Outlook Express contacts to Outlook

Since I don't know what versions you're using, these are the instructions for Outlook Express 6 and Outlook 2000. Other versions should be, if not the same, similar.

For the address book, you first have to export from OE into a file in a format Outlook can use. That format is "Comma Separated Values (Windows)."

In OE, go to File>Export>Address Book. The only option given is "Text File (comma separated values)" so click on it to select it and click Next. Then use the browse button to navigate to the folder where you want to save the file, type in a name for the file that will be created, click Save, then click Next.

Put check marks in the boxes next to whatever information in the address book you want to import into Outlook. Go through the whole list, unchecking those things you do not need or want. When done, click Finish.

Then, in Outlook, go to File>Import and Export, choose "Import from a file or program," then "Comma Separated Values (Windows)," browse to the file you made, tell it to import that.

Messages are simpler. With Outlook closed, in Outlook Express go to File>Export>Messages. It will tell you it's going to export to either Exchange or Outlook, tell it okay, select what you want to export, click OK and when you open Outlook, the messages should be there.

I have tried changing the drop down box from the Select names window, to contacts, (of which there are 2 selections) thinking that this might allow me to select from the Outlook contact, however
when I do this, I get an Outlook error message
"The address list could not be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions. For information on how to remove this folder from the outlook address book, see Microsoft Outlook Help."

Hi all

I'm having trouble opening a Word file. The last sequence of events relating to it were when I saved it whilst still open, as a PDF, (for uploading to a website), then tried to save in the .doc or .docx format also.

Now I'm getting error messages - see attached, and although I have tried converting from Word and from 'other', and trying the different unicode suggestions, I am unable to open the document.

I do have the document now as a PDF, but obviously converting back to Word is a royal pain in the neck, and even though I have tried it using the various online resources, it is not keeping all the styles/fonts etc, so I wanted to see if there is any way I can retrieve the document first!

Things to consider: the file is massive - 47MB, which seems strange. It is a newsletter style and does contain lots of images, textboxes, etc, but all images have been processed first so they are only a small number of KB.
I'm on MacOSX, and the version of Word is Word 2008 ver 12.2.5 (100505)

I hope you can help - sorry if I'm in the wrong place or the answer is already someplace else - I'm new to techguy!

I haven't attached it but let me know if you need me to? Unless 47MB is bigger than England itself?!

Thanks,

Catherine

When I try to open IE11 a dialogue box pops up asking if I want to save the web page. When I click it or cancel it IE closes. This also happens in other programs such as Foxit Reader but I can still access the program after I close the boxes. One program (H&R Blck Tax 2014) pops up the box and I save or cancel and the program stays open but the page is blank. I've tried all flavors of fixes I know and then some. Anybody have some ideas as to what might be causing this?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
First thought would be to use the link and exe file type restore reg files see what happens,
Default File Type Associations - Restore

You might need to do this using clean boot or safe mode with networking to download the reg files ?
Use Clean boot,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html

Safe mode with networking,
Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)
Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,
Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.
Login as usual
Other advanced methods,

I saved an online receipt using the firefox "save page as" feature. I have both the html icon and the file folder containing the elements. They are in the same location, my desktop. Yet, for some reason when I click on the html icon, all i get is a blank page. Can someone help me retrieve this, please. I critically need this receipt. Thanks.

A:Help opening "save page as file"

I got it resolved. In case anyone else runs into this, here's what I did. I went to firefox and installed ieview addon, then opened the receipt in ieview after it came up empty in Firefox.

I'm trying to duplicate AOL mail's behavior whereby any email message that I read is automatically copied to the saved mail location on my computer, so it remains available even when I'm offline. I want to do this in both Outlook and Outlook Express. I've investigated Mail Rules in both programs, and can't find any rule template that resembles this. Also searched in these forums and tried Microsoft's Outlook support site.
 

A:How do I auto-save mail in Outlook & Outlook Express?

...I forgot to mention I'm using Outlook or Outlook Express with an IMAP (America Online) account, not POP3. With POP3, all email is already downloaded to my computer, but with IMAP it stays on the server. I can manually copy individual items to my Saved Mail folder, but I want it to happen automatically, triggered by opening/reading the email item.

I used activsync to load all of my contacts from the PC (XP) to an ipaq. I then deleted contacts from the ipaq that were not needed. I then found that the activsync had removed all of the deleted contacts from my PC also. I need to recover the contacts on the PC.
Any hope?

Do you make regular backups of your pc data including outlook data files? Other than that, no idea if it's been deleted from Outlook contacts already.

Hi there,

I have searched for the answer to this and so far have not found any answer so here goes :

When I compile a new message and press the "To:" button to display the address book, Outlook will display all my contacts even if they have no e-mail addresses and no fax numbers (some only have a business phone number). I would like it to display only those that have an e-mail address specified. This must be possible? Please help!!

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

What version are you using, because it is not working that way in Outlook 2003?
