    Hi,
    Can anyone help me to export .wab file to Gmail. Is there any manual method through which I can easily convert Windows Address Book to Gmail, as my old computer has been crashed but fortunately I had its backup stored locally and I have stored by data in my new Windows (Win7) also. Now I need to import WAB to Gmail. Please suggest me the possible solutions.

    Hi, Michael
    If you wish to bring your contacts to Gmail, you have to first export Windows Address Book into .csv or .vcf file format. As Gmail supports .csv, Vcard or .vcf file format only.

    Thanks!

    Hi, Michael
    I have read your query, you need to first move to .csv format then only you can convert WAB to Gmail. For transferring the contacts in .csv format you can follow these steps:
    1. Open Outlook Express
    2. Go to File, Export, Address Book
    3. Select Text File (Comma separated Value)

    Hope the above method helps you!

    I hope this solution can work. Once you have exported the contacts, Open Gmail from a browser >> Open Contacts Manager >> Select “More” >> Choose “Import” >> Select the file you exported and then choose “Import”.

    If you still Have any query please feel free to ask!

    Thanks & Regards
    Dexter

    Okay, Michael, you can follow these steps to export the contacts in .csv format.

    Click the Start button, type Contacts, Open the Contacts Program, then click the Import button, select Windows Address Book file (.wab), then click Export button & select Comma separated format.

    Hey, Dexter, I don’t have Outlook Express installed on my system, but I have WAB files stored in my system locally. Please suggest me methods so that I can import WAB to Gmail without the requirement to install Outlook Express.

    There is an alternative solution you can use third party “WAB Converter tool” to export Windows Address Book to Gmail. You can even try the demo version. It will help you perform the migration easily without the need to install Outlook Express in your system.
