HOWTO Export contacts from Outlook to Excel.

This HOWTO article applies to Microsoft Office 2007. I think it should work for Microsoft Office 2003 as well. This is to export your Outlook Contacts information to an Excel worksheet. A little information to share about the difference between Outlook Address Book, and Outlook Contacts. "They are both part of Outlook. However, the Address Book is a compilation of the different address lists you might have stored in Outlook, such as Personal Address Book (.pab), LDAP Internet directories, the Global Address List (GAL), or other third-party address books. Contacts is just one of the address lists that makes up the Address Book." (2010,

Here's the step by step guide.

  • In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export
  • Click Export to a file, and then click Next.
  • Click Microsoft Excel, and then click Next.
  • In the folder list, click the Contacts folder, and then click Next.
  • Browser to the folder where you want to save the contacts as an Excel file (.fls)
  • Type a name for the exported file, and then click OK.
  • Click Next.
  • Click Finish.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
