What is a 97-2002 PST file? I, too need to transfer my data from 2007 to 2002
Outlook, but need a more detailed procedure, please.
Thank you,
HMTiddy

In Outlook, click File>New>Outlook Data File. Choose "Outlook 97-2002
Personal Folders File (.pst)". Click OK. Browse to the folder where you want
the file created or accept the default. Give the file a name or accept the
default (although I'd change the name). Click OK. Specify a display name (in
the Name field) or accept the default (although I'd choose a name that matched
the file name you chose in the prior step). Click OK. You now have an ANSI
format PST. Copy your folders, one at a time, from your main folder set to
the root of the newly-added PST. When you've finished copying all you want,
right-click the root of the added PST and choose Close. Close Outlook. You
can then copy that PST to a system using an earlier version of Outlook and it
should open just fine (File>Open>Outlook Data File).
