    Corrupted address book
    Recreating an address book from a corrupted file, usually .wab, requires a software designed for this purpose.
    Here is a link for one:

    If you wish to view it, scroll down to the heading "address book recovery".

    I know of no way to do it yourself.

    Best of luck,
