    I am getting the error message: Login failed. You must logon to Microsoft
    Exchange to access your address book. Error code: "Unspecified error." when
    trying to access my address book in Microsoft Word at work. We do not have
    Exchange and it is a brand new computer. IBM NetVista using Microsoft XP
    Professional.

    Any ideas?

    No wonder you're failing to login to Exchange if you don't have Exchange
    installed!

    Start up Outlook and configure your address book properly, so Word can use
    it.

    The address book used by Word is the address book view into Outlook
    Contacts. The contacts property must be set to be used as such and Outlook
    must be the default e-mail application - unbless you have Microsoft
    Exchange, which is an expensive corporate messaging system.

    My problem specifically is that I cannot find any .wab or .csv folders to
    link to??

    I thought your problem was specifically that you couldn't use the Address
    book from Word?

    The Outlook Address book property is selected from Outlook Contacts (right
    click > properties)
    If it is not available to Word when checked and Outlook is the default
    e-mail application, delete the Outlook address book from Outlook and then
    re-add it. (Tools > e-mail accounts > view or change existing directories or
    address books > Outlook Address Book.
    If accessing from vba, you will probably have to select the Outlook Object
    Library reference in vba tools
