I am following instructions to export addresses from Yahoo to Outlook 2000 per website http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/addressbook/impexp/impexp-06.html
My issue is that I follow everything correctly saving my addresses as a .csv file and during the process of going into outlook and choosing "import address book from a .csv file" I get a prompt to download the import/export feature.

I no longer have my disk so cannot download the feature. I was wondering if anyone knew of any freeware that can override this issue.

Microsoft should have downloaded it initially when I inserted the disk, not prompted me to find the disk I got 7 years ago because it never loaded the first time. I recently changed to Outlook and subscribed for $20 to Yahoo Plus because Yahoo is having all these server issues on their end. Now I have to deal with this! Please tell me how to get addresses into Outlook if possible without the disk. If it's not just let me know so I can save my time!

I don't personally know. However, w/r/t this bit:

First, export information from your Yahoo! Address Book:

1. Open your Yahoo! Address Book and click "Import/Export" in the upper-right corner.
2. In the Export section, click "Export Now" next to the phrase "Microsoft Outlook."
3. A dialog window opens and gives you the option to save your Yahoo! Address Book to disk as a .csv file. Click "Save to Disk".
4. Click "OK". The .csv file will be saved to your desktop.


In Outlook Express, there's an option to File > Import > Other Address Book, which then has a Text File (CSV) option. I don't know if that works straight off (don't have a CSV to test with), if it does you can then export from OE to Outlook without getting the import/export feature prompt (because I just tried that part).

So ... do you have Outlook Express?

EDIT: actually I justed tested exporting my current OE address book as a CSV, and then importing it back. Worked with no prompts.

Thanks for the advice! I downloaded express to import addresses and then transferred them to Outlook 2000. I prefer Outlook 2000 and had so many addresses. Thanks Microsoft for the hassle.......but hey it's fixed:)
