Export Contacts to CSV - Translator Error

I am unable to export outlook contacts to csv.  Receiving a Translator Error.  "A file error has occurred in the translator while trying to save a field map"  Goes on to reference an .adr file

This occures when exporting into any format.

I have already done an Office Repair.


This issue occurs if certain translator files or certain database converters are not available because they were not installed during Setup. Converters in Outlook are installed on demand. Additionally, the local install source folder (Msocache) may be damaged or missing

Follow the article for more information


If this fails try removing and reinstalling office
