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 e-mail 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.
