We are using Outlook 2013 to access a Godaddy account via IMAP. I created a new profile and wanted to import the autocomplete data from the old profile. I found the Stream Autocomplate.dat file in RoamCache, made copies of the old and new ones first as a precaution. Then I renamed the old one with the name of the new one. But when I start Outlook, it does not see those entries, and further, when I look at the size of the .dat file, it is now only 2 KB, where it was 238 KB when I renamed it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Yes I have a saved copy. Are there any directions on how to use nk2edit? I can't find them its website.

Thanks

It's basically a wizard - run the exe and browse to the autocomplete file.
