    Importing AutoComplete (.nk2) File into Outlook 2007

    Hello all,

    Perhaps someone may be able to help me out here:

    Outlook caches it's autocomplete into a .nk2 file which is saved in:

    Code:
    XP: drive:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
     
    Vista & 7: drive:\Users\user\Application Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
    I want to transfer this file from an laptop with XP and Office 2003 to a PC with Windows 7 and Office 2007. How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance

    Tom

    Don't worry guys, I've found a solution - it may be a way around the problem but it definately works

    Just in case someone else is suffering from the same problem here is my solution:

    I downloaded NK2Edit - it's just an .exe file so it wont clog up your hard drive with installation files. I opened two windows, one with the old .nk2 file and one with the new .nk2 file and then I copied and pasted the emails and saved it as Outlook.nk2 and then I went to C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlookand renamed the existing Outlook.nk2 to Outlook OLD.nk2 just as a back up. Then I pasted the new Outlook.nk2 into the folder then restarted outlook.
