Creating and Using Separate Address Books

Calendar Creator automatically collects all address book records in one central file on your computer system so you can have access to your contact information no matter which calendar file you open. If you need multiple address books in order to keep track of separate contacts, follow these steps:

To create a new address book file:

  1. Select Preferences from the File menu, then click the Default Paths tab.
  2. Click the Browse button next to the text entry box labeled "Calendar Address Book."
  3. Enter a name for your new address book file in the "File name" box.

Notes: You must include the extension .mdb after your new file name.

To create your new address book file in a different folder or on a different drive, use the drop-down menu at the top of the Open dialog box to navigate to the new location.

  1. Press Enter or click Open.

  2. Click OK in the Preferences dialog box. You'll be notified that your new file does not exist and asked if you'd like it to be created.

  3. Click OK or press Enter.

Your new address book file will be used automatically whenever you open a new or existing calendar file (until you create a new address book file or switch to an existing one).

To switch to an existing address book file:

  1. Select Preferences from the File menu, then click on the Default Paths tab.
  2. Click the Browse button next to the text entry box labeled "Calendar Address Book."
  3. If necessary, use the drop-down menu at the top of the Open dialog box to navigate to the location of the file. Then double-click on the file or select the file and click Open.
  4. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box.
