Im using 10.5.5 / PowerBook Pro / everything has been terrific

Customer Question

I'm using 10.5.5 / PowerBook Pro / everything has been terrific including the new OS for the past few weeks. All of the addresses in my address book are gone without my doing anything. When i type a name into the masthead of an email the address book names for a particular name come up but there is nothing in the address book itself even though the Get Info shows 55 MB of data are there. As well, all of the sub groups are gone. Any idea what i can do to restore the book. I have a backup from Tiger but i can't use it on Leopard. Thanks
