Import .CSV Address File.

I can export a CSV address book from one quicken file (call it A) but there are no options to import this addrtess file into my new quicken file (B). Latest quicken R37.66. I see where older versions had way (File\File Export\Addresses) but can't find any import function for CSV except stock prices.
Or can someone tell me where the address file resides?

    Per the online help, Address Book importing is only available in the Home, Business, and Rental Property edition of Quicken. (Help also says exporting is only available in HBRP, but obviously that's incorrect; I can export from Premier)

    One has to understand that the data file format is the same for all "editions".  So, for sure even with the Starter version there is an address book in the data file (note it isn't a separate thing).  But it is the edition level of the subscription that turns features on or off.  So, for the sake of importing addresses using a CSV file you aren't going to get around that.
