Upgrading office on the same computer? Just install 2007 and outlook will use the old profile.

Moving to an new computer? See Move outlook to a new computer

All you need is the pst file you are using with Outlook 2003 - and even if you are just upgrading your computer, i recommend copying the pst for backup. It's good practice to have a backup copy of your data file.

Please note you do not need to buy software to migrate - its very easy to do without software. Your mail, calendar, and contacts are all in the pst file.

I am also having issues with moving my Outlook 2003 pst file to Outlook 2007. I am unable to see any of the folders I had created in 2003. If I move the pst back to Outlook 2003 the folders are visible.

In Outlook 2007, switch to the Folder list (Ctrl+6) - can you find the folders there?

Thanks for the reply, I discovered the issue. My wife had created a separate pst file for all her folders. I have now added the pst folder and all our mail folders have been recovered. Thank you again.
