How to Convert WAB to CSV

WAB (Windows Address Book) is a file format used in Microsoft Outlook Express to store all your contact information. If you want to transfer your Outlook contacts to another email program, such as Google’s Gmail, your best option is to convert your contacts to a Common Separated Values (CSV) format. This is a standard format that is used to import contacts to other programs. To convert a WAB file to CSV, you must export your Outlook Express address book to a CSV file.
