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: 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.

Is there a way to export my contacts, and personal calendar from this program? To load it to a disk or otherwise?

Will a print out of the contacts include ALL of the "tabs" of information, or does each one have to be printed separately?

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?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

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

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.

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.

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.

I have Outlook XP (2002), and the Help file has nothing on this. It has a merge feature when you create a new contact with exactly the same name or email address as an existing one, offering to merge the info on the new contact into the existing one, but that's no help with 2 or more existing contacts for the same person.

I bet there is a solution, either on the MS KLnowledge Base or elsewhere on the web. Perhaps the solution is a macro someone created that you can use.

A:contacts outlook 2000

If you're talking about Outlook IMO option, you'll find the contacts in the outlook.pst file. You can give a copy of your PST to anyone you want; you can export just your Contacts folder to another PST file that you name, if you want; you can share the PST between two machines if you want. What you cannot do is share the PST file between two PCs and have them both have Outlook open at the same time. Unless you're on an exchange server at work and have shared public folders.

The Admin Assistant opens her Supervisor's Contacts from her PC via "File", "Open", "Other User's Folder".

She creates a contact for her Supervisor (EVP). When she creates the contact, he gets it automatically marked as private. Because of that, she can't see it from her PC. I don't want her to see contacts he has marked as private. So I don't want to change the properties to allow her to do so.

I don't understand why her created contacts for him are automatically being checked as private. She said this just started a month ago and that neither have made changes to the program.

Does anyone know what is happening and why?
How can I fix this so that when she creates a contact, it does not automatically mark it as private when it comes to him?

Was wondering if anyone else has run across this problem. The environment is a simple peer-to-peer network. My workstation is win2k pro. I share my contacts with my secretary and she in on the network and her workstation in running win2k. We both have OUTLOOK 2000, the last version I believe that allows calender and contact sharing and synch'ing.
Anyway what happens is if I am looking for a contact that say starts with 'W' and I go and click 'W', sometimes they will not all show up but I know it's in my contacts file. So what I do is do a find and then it shows up.
I am looking on the msn support site...Just wondering if anyone has had this problem before.
Thanks
 

A:Outlook 2000 - Some contacts not displaying

I'll presume you are using "delegates" to share contacts.

Items marked "private" will not show up unless the adequate permissions have been granted to the delegate.

Another way this problem mainfests itself comes from using "views." For instance, if you are looking at a telephone list type view of your contacts then contacts that don't have a telephone number entered will not show up. However, if you search for them <CTRL + ALT + F> then you can use find to make visible contacts that are excluded from a particular "view."

Good luck

hello,

Outlook usually files my contacts with the last name first (Smith, Joe for example). But sometimes when I get a contact forwarded to me by a co-worker, Outlook files it first name first. This is kind of annoying when I'm searching for a contact using last names. When I open the contact, the "file as.." pull down menu doesn't list last name first (Smith, Joe).

Any ideas?

Error message "Unable to display the folder." Is it possible for a user to filter or prevent themselves from viewing contact folders from the folder list? When I created a new contacts folder in the owner's mailbox I got the same error. It seems some how the user was able to make contact folders unavailable or non viewable. Other users can view the owner's contact folder but the owner of the mailbox can't view any contact type folder. How ever while composing a message the mailbox owner can click "To" and in the "Show names from the" field choose a contact list and view it. I've ran detect and repair and that didn't fix the contacts problem. Any Ideas?

Hi,
I am trying to import Contacts from an Excel sheet into Outlook 2000. I have created the Excel sheet according to the required Outllok 2000 format. I have an additional field "EXTENSION" (which contains the extension number to the Phone # of a contact). This "EXTENSION" field is not available by default in Outlook 2000, so I created a User Defined Field in Outlook.
The problem is that I am not able to Map the "EXTENSION" field from the Excel sheet to the field that I have created in Outlook coz it doesnot appear in the available fields when I try to map the fields.
Can any one tell me how I can import the "EXTENSION" field.

A:Importing Contacts into Outlook 2000

I have had exactly the same problem importing. I have a vendor database of 1000 vendors. I created a searchable "Keyword" column to import into Outlook. Outlook shows Keywords in the Outlook map, but there is no real field if you check a contact form. So I tired other fields. Since I have no other use for "Assistant"s Name ( who has assistants these days?) I used it because it worked. So, Now I select the database, click on Tools|Advanced Find|Advanced Tab|Name Fields| Assistant's Name. I enter the search word in "Values", click "Find Now", click yes to the next dialogue box, and up come my results. It is really a lot simpler and quicker than it sounds, because I do it alot.

So, just find a field that will work and that you do not need for something else.

When I go to address an email by scrolling down the list of contacts that show up by clicking on the email "to" button, only some of my contacts come through, despite the fact that all of my contacts contain email addresses. I have checked the Microsoft website, and their fix on this (OL 2000 (CW)/Q197907) for Outlook 2000 is limited to Outlook installed with the "corporate or workgroup" option, which mine is not. I was unable to find any additional help for this version of Outlook and would greatly appreciate any insights. Thank you very much.
 

A:Outlook 2000 SR-1: Problem with Contacts in Email

Hi lawyermom
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Do you have more than one Contacts folder in Outlook?

Open the Address Book in Outlook, are there folders or groups listed under Contacts?
If so, look in each to see if the missing Contacts appear.
If Contacts appear in other folders, you can Copy them to the main folder.

When using the To: button, you can also click the drop down arrow and switch to the other folders (if they exist) to select those Contacts.

Let us know what you find.
This may be of interest to you: This link shows how to reconfigure mail support in Outlook 2000.

An advantage of having Outlook configured as Corporate/Workgroup, is the ability to create additional profiles in Outlook. If errors start occurring in Outlook, you can create another profile to see if the errors occur in the new profile, as well.

Hi kids. Ever since I upgraded to Win2k, my Outlook 2k won't show my contacts subfolders in that To/CC/BCC window. Which also means that it can't validate a contact's name when I just type it into the To/CC/BCC lines if that contact happens to be in a subfolder.

I do not like this. And I couldn't punch that magic MS KB set of buttons to get a reply (if indeed there is one out there) as to what might be going on.

May be a worthwhile side note that my Win2k is in French, and my MS Office is in English, and yet this To/CC/BCC window actually opens with French captions... Strange...

HELP

I switched on my computer and left it running all day, only to get on in the evening to open up Outlook 2000 and be asked the question to either create a pst file or use an existing one. I run Windows XP Pro SP1 at home, so no exchange server. I tried to open up my personal folder pst file and it was corrupt so I used a tool I found on the internet to repair the pst file which it seemed to do (don't know the name of the program). Anyway, when I got into it, there were no emails at all in my inbox and deleted items folder which the day before had loads of emails, my shortcut folders were still there but with nothing in them, and funny enough, all my sent items were still ok. Also gone were my contacts. I looked at all the pst files in the outlook folder of the Application Data of my user profile under local settings and notice that the personal folder was only around 75Kb when it should be at least in the few hundered mb I would have thought.

Also, if I choose my personal folder which I assume is the one that had all my lost data, the next time I turn the computer on, I get asked the same question again - create new or select an existing pst.

Any ideas? I really need to recover the lost emails and silly me has forgotten to backup.

I recently lost my job and was able to have a coworker burn a copy of my .pst file to cdrom. I have "easily" imported the .pst to my home PC, however, the calendar and contacts are missing from my import. Needless to say, I am dumbfounded and frustrated.

I have searched the web, Microsoft, and this forum for answers, but I can't seem to do anything to get the .pst to show the contacts. btw I'm Running W98.

Here are my questions:

1. If I copy the .pst versus Outlook export function, do I lose my contacts/calendar info?

2. How do I retrieve my contacts from the CDROM? keep in mind I have already gone through the import function AND also tried copying to the windows\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook folder with the same result.

3. Is it possible that the pst file did NOT contain the contacts folder?

A:Contacts selection lost in Outlook 2000

First, no panicking!

1. Hit Tools-Services. If Personal address book is already in there, go to #2 below. If it is not already in there, hit the Add button and add the PAB file. You may still need to look for your existing pab file using the find-files in #2.

2. Hit Start-Find-Files or folders and look for *.pab files on your hard drive. If nothing considerable (over 30KB), then look for them on your network drive, if you've got one, you'll be wanting to select it when you add it as a service, or move to #3.

3. You had personal address book already listed as a service. You found the name of your PAB by using 2, above. Go to Tools-Services, select personal address book and remove it as a service. Then add it back in as in 2.

Adding and removing services DOES NOT AFFECT the existence of files that are used with these services, such as *.PAB or *.PST files. They are still on your hard drive.

Because there are literally thousands of contacts between all of the computers that need to be changed to "normal", is there any way possible that this can be done all in one shot (on each computer individually, of course) instead of manually doing it for each "private" contact?

Hello! I am running Windows 98, Outlook 2000. Our hard drive heated up (very dusty) and after that I was unable to access my In Box (indicates 3 unread messages) in my Personal Folders. When I click on the In Box the error is "Unable to display the folder". Within that set of Personal Folders I can access deleted files, Drafts and other subfolders.

I tried Detect and Repair, I tried downloading service pack 1. Also, my address book disappeared. I was able to find Contacts and print a hard copy of email addresses, but Import/Export is 'greyed out'. My calendar, with standing appointments is gone.
I may have made the problem worse by moving around subfolders between "Outlook Today Archive Folders" and Personal Folders. I also have since received more email and so now I do not trust my archive.pst or outlook.pst to be the 'best copy'.

Any ideas? Salvagable? I am thinking of going to Windows 2000, and buying Outlook 2003 and rebuilding my address book and cutting my losses with email. Recommendations?

Thank you!!

Hello

I have a rather strange problem on a user at work's pc.
If he clicks file>save attachments and chooses any directory an error appears: "The file name is not valid".

This happens for any kind of attachment (word, excel, adobe etc).
I tried giving other names eg file.doc, test.doc.

Nothing worked. I can drag and drop the attachments to a directory, that works fine?!

Can anyone help me?

Regards

Pileyrei

Our small office network is using Outlook 2000 for e-mail.
Each of 5 PCs has a standalone version of Outlook 2000 installed (as part of the Office 2000 suite).
Only the boss's PC has internet access. Other PCs can draft messages and save in a shared PST file used as a communal outbox and the boss (me) can then drag those e-mails into his personal Outbox for sending under the cover of his internet e-mail identity by opening the e-mail found in the shared outbox and clicking "Send" again under his e-mail identity, which sends it to his personal Outbox, ready for Send-And-Receive.
The system functions OK for our purposes (and avoids the expense of multi-licence software) but the main problem is that the boss's PC only allows copies of Sent messages to be saved in his Personal Folder's Sent Items folder.
What we want is for a copy of the sent message to be saved in the shared PST folder where the original message (that is being replied to) is filed.
We have set up a number of shared .PST files stored in our Shared Documents folder. In these shared .PST folders we store e-mails from clients so that any PC workstation can open and read - and reply to - e-mail messages stored in the shared .PST folders.
We want the system to work such that when any workstation clicks "Reply" to any message stored in a shared .PST folder, a copy of the reply (either as "sent" by that workstation to the shared outbox for the boss's attention, or as &qu... Read more

So you're using the same version of office on all the computers? Are they all using the same license number?

Hello!

I'm using Outlook 2000 SR-1. I need to rename and save individual messages. I do a File, Save As, and name the message what I want. The problem is that I would like the default file type to be Outlook's standard .msg and I can't figure out how to do this.

The way things are, each message is either a .txt, .html, or .rtf and I have to change the Save As Type every time.

Is there a fix or a better way?

Thanks,
Kerry
