Import address.dat file?

Hi, is there a way to import an old "address.dat" file into Outlook 2007 without installing Palm Desktop? I have an old backup contacts list but I no longer use a Palm. I have tried to read the .dat file with Notepad, Word and Excel but it is illegible. Thanks in advance.

How do I import data into a program like excel through a virtual RS232 port?

I bought a scale and a USB interface kit, which connects the scale to the computer by using a generic interface based on the RS232 serial standard. According to the manual, data sent from the balance is in USB format, which is then directed to a virtual port. This port then appears as an RS232 port to the application program. It came with a cd with software to create the required virtual port, but I don't know how to get an application to connect to the port, or which application to use.


I am afraid this will depend on the application you have in that CD

What is the type of the files that that application can export to?

If it is a common one (I guess they must have a common one) then you can easily export ti to Excel

Common ones like
Tab delimited text (TXT)
Comma Separated Values (CSV)
