Moderated Re: How To Locate The Path To A Specific Outlook Address Book

Thanks, bill.


I’ll give these suggestions a try.


Am I correct in saying that the file will be called g-mail address book, as it is in Outlook when I arrow up and down my various address books after shift-tabbing into the address book  list?


After I find the file, my next task will be trying to figure out what format the address book needs to be in for the Polaris note-taker.  I assume .csv, but will have to check the manual.

Hi, Tom. The file path to your addressbook should be in one of the following two locations,


1. Windows 10 drive:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.

2. Windows 10 drive:\Users\<username>\Roaming\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.

Hello, everyone.


I am trying to import my personal g-mail address book from Outlook 2019 and Office 365 into a Polaris Braille Note-taker.


Can someone tell me how I can find the file path to that specific address book?


My Outlook e-mail through Office 365 has multiple address books, since I also access my University e-mail account via the University’s exchange e-mail server.


I can get to the list of my address books in Outlook via the shift-tab and arrow keys, but that does not tell me the specific file path location for the specific address book I’m looking for.


I have asked the Microsoft Accessibility folks to help me locate and export this address book, but they never seemed to come up with the right one.  Plus, whatever they came up with was a very messy file once I saved it into a .csv file.


Any help with this dilemma would be appreciated.
