From either Outlook Express or the MS Works Address book:
Import
then choose type file
choose Exchange Personal Address Book
The new Works address book import completes the action but does not ask for the file location ( I am trying to import a MS Exhange Personal address book into a Works Address Book, which appears to be the address book for Outlook Express a .wab not a .pab) so of course nothing happens and no data is imported. MS Tech Support is no help.

Then why not do it backwards, export into Works I think it is you want to import to.

Rick, I am trying to load a pab file into a new ( totally blank)laptop works address book. Exporting did not do anything either, MS works happily comletes the function but no data transfer takes place.
cheers

Sorry, I saw nobody responded to your post so I thought I would just make a suggestion. I didn't know if it would work but thought you might want to try it. I don't know anything about works, I've only used a few machines that have it on so I can't tell you how you would go about importing. That is why I suggested exporting from Outlook or ???

Someone will be along in a little that can help with works.
