We have a new laptop (Win7 Pro 64 bit) and Office 2007 Pro, with regional
settings for Canada. The old machine is running XP Pro (sp3) and Office 2003
Pro, again with regional settings for Canada. Exporting and then importing
from version 2003 to version 2007 worked fine for Outlook. When we import the
BCM data into BCM 2007 the date format is changed from the Canadian default
dd/mm/yyyy to the US format mm/dd/yyyy. Additionally the dates that would be
invalid in the US format (any cdn day read as a us month higher than 12) are
missing. Both OS and Office versions are fully patched current.

I would like to have the BCM history data in the 2007 BCM formatted as CDN
(matching the Regional Settings of the PC) and the information droped
restored.

Sounds like an interesting challenge.

Have you tried backup 2003 and restore that into 2007?
