    There is nothing native to Windoze that has an adderss book function. You could use Outlook Express and use the contacts for your address book. You can download it from MS web site as part of Internet Explorer.

    hard to tell what you want

    is it postal addresses, mainly for mailing
    or email addresses mainly for email?

    postal addresses - can use a database, word processor, or spreadsheet progam, then print labels or merge addresses into letters, envelopes etc

    email addresses - use the feature in your email program

    in either case, you can usually import the information from an existing text format into the software you want to use

    all, of course, depending what software program you want to use

    what windows (95, 98, me, etc) and software programs do you have,
    & which programs are you most familar with (ie word, excel, wordperfect, lotus etc)

    I want to be able to just type in somewhere, i am ok with word, my old client info files from an old card file system so put in the name mailing address, tel numbers etc, and then get the info to do a mail (post) shot.

    It must be simple but i cannot find anything in 95.

    stupid i know but its really annoying me

    We can help you much better if provide answers to our questions. You say you are ok with Word, but don't tell us what other programs you have, as asked by jbcalg.

    Anyway.

    If you have Excel, this might be the best to use. Just put your column headings in row 1 and your first record/address in row two. I suggest you separate the columns like Lastname, Firstname, MI, etc., and also the address into StreetAddress, POBox/Other, City, State, Zip columns.

    If you don't have Excel, you can do this in a table in Word just as easily.
