Re-installing Address Book

  Skeletor 09:22 07 Apr 03

I have tried to re-install my address book from a CD-RW backup disc after having to re-install Win XP, only to get the message "The Address Book file has been locked by another application. Please close the other application and try again later." Does anyone have any suggestions how I might get my addresses back.

Copy across from the CD-RW disc a copy of your address book (the wab file) to your desktop. Then try importing from the desktop. If you still get the same error message - right-click and select properties. Take the tick out of the 'read only' box and apply. Then try again.

Many thanks. I copied the wab file to my desktop as you suggested......Worked first time!
Thanks again
