1.In my prior PIM, was able to transfer contact/calendar/note/task data between my desktop and laptop using either a: my WiFi LAN; or, b: flash drive sneakernet.

2.After 5 hrs, have to admit I can't replicate the process in Outlook 2007. "For dummies" doesn't help, the Outlook backup function only gets me halfway there.

3.Would appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.

Outlook does a poor job at sharing with other computers, unless you have an Exchange server mailbox or Hotmail and use the outlook connector. Without either, your choices are limited and not necessarily easy. I recommend trying a sync utility - we have a list of utilties as well as various methods at Synchronizing Outlook on Two Machines- at least 2 utilities have free trials and at least one has a free 'lite' version, although it is limited in what it syncs.

If you don't make a lot of changes, you can email items between your two machines - attach them to an email and send it to yourself. Drag the items off the message nd drop into the correct folders.
