Here are the two things you’ll need to check and set correctly.

1.  Make sure the Outlook Address Book service is added to the profile

2.  Ma that the Contacts folder is marked as an Outlook Address Book

3.  Address Book service is broken

Make sure the Outlook Address Book service is added to the profile

 

Outlook can only show contacts from your Contacts folder(s) in the Address Book when the Outlook Address Book Service has been added to your mail profile. You can add this service in the following way.

1.      Open the Address Book lists for your mail profile;

  Outlook 2003 

Tools-> E-mail Accounts-> View or change existing directories or address books-> Next

  Outlook 2007 

Tools-> Account Settings...-> tab Address Books

  Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013

File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings...-> tab Address Books

2.      If the Outlook Address Book service is added already, you should mark your Contacts folder as an Outlook Address Book.

3.      If the Outlook Address Book service has not been added yet, press the New... or Add... button.

4.      Select “Additional Address Books” and click Next.

5.      Choose “Outlook Address Book” and click Next.

6.      You’ll be prompted that you must close and restart Outlook for changes to take effect.

7.      Press OK and close and restart Outlook.

8.      The service is now added.

Also I can suggest this program Address Book Recovery http://www.oemailrecovery.com/address-book-recovery.html
