Copy Outlook 2007 "AutoComplete Contacts to Outlook 2010

Dear Experts

I tried to export AutoComplete Contacts from an old PC that has windows XP / Outlook 2007

to a new PC that has windows 7 / outlook 2010, but it seems I couldn't get it work.

I followed instructions in the links below

http://www.mockbox.net/office-2010/...to-complete-from-outlook-2007-to-outlook-2010

http://blog.nektra.com/main/2010/05...tlook-2003-or-2007-to-microsoft-outlook-2010/

http://teh-geek.com/?p=576

On new PC Outlook 2010 profile name is : Test not Outlook

On new PC Outlook 2010 Data file name is : outlook.pst

location for this data file is

C:\Users\%username%\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

Name of the autocomplete file on old PC is Outlook.NK2

On the new PC I renamed it to Test.NK2 to match the Outlook 2010 profile name.

I located it in this path :

C:\Users\%username%\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

I don't what I am missing ??

On the new computer why does the path for the outlook 2010 profile is different from the path of Test.NK2 ??

Thanks

I should clarify, the NK2 is in the roaming folder, the new autocomplete cache is in the local path.

The NK2 needs to be in %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook and it needs to be named the same as your profile.

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980542/ for a Mr Fix it that can import it for you.

Hi Diane

I did try that and it didn't work as well

Try the fix it on the Microsoft page - if that fails, then the problem is something else.

To import .nk2 files into Outlook 2010, follow these steps: Make sure that the .nk2 file is in the following folder: %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook

Although the link above mentioned the path for .NK2 file should be : %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook ,,,but when I watched the video in the same link it showed this path %appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook,,,,,I feel there is contradiction between what have been written and what is in the video !!! Can you clarify

Thanks

%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook is a shortcut for the path, using system variables (%appdata%). If you paste it in the address bar of windows explorer and press enter, you'll jump to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
