Convert ABA to CSV files?

Have Palm address book data in .ABA format. Palm is dead, so no alternative output options available. Can .ABA files be converted to CSV files, which Outlook can import? Google search does not turn up any SW. Ideas really appreciated.

PS - Have copy of Palm directory containing business and personal addressbook data I wish to recover.

I was not clear enough. My fault.

New PC. New load of Palm desktop 4.01. Will not import existing ABA files, which were backed up prior to move.

Re-read my second post. I cannot import the files into Palm desktop. I do not know why. It was suggested to me that Outlook can import the files, but they must be converted to CSV.

your second message was more confusing than the first.

Anyway. If you have an yahoo account, you might be able to import your contacts then export them as csv.
