Hi,

Anyone that can help me with this would be great. I'm trying to import Yahoo!'a address book to XP's address book. It seems pretty straight forward. I make a csv value file of Yahoo!'s address book from it's own service for this which I do. I make a copy of it to My documents. Then I Import it to XP's address book. Only one thing it stops loading about 1/2 way through the loading and stays there. It will not complete the process. What gives? I've repeated the process about 10 times and always the exact same thing it's stops right in the same place and will not move beyond it? Anyone that can help me with this I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

John :thumbsup:

Hi,

It's 167 kb. How could that be a problem? Thanks.

You mentioned importing them into XP. What is the exact program you are importing them to? -Outlook Express, Outlook 2003, etc.
To me, almosts sound like it is getting stuck on one entry. If so, any idea what the exact entry is? Or, is there no indicator?

Here's the help file, if you haven't already found it.

Good-luck.
