A friend is trying to export "contacts" "calendar" "Inbox" and "Sent Items" from Outlook Express into Outlook 2000. We both assumed that it would keep the data in the same layout as it was in O/E and move it to Outlook like that.
We noticed that the Import Export facility isnt anything like that in Outlook. Is there a way of exporting the data from Outlook Express to Outlook so that it keeps the same layout/format.
I have just tried to export an address book from OE6 to Outlook 2000. I was only offered 2 options - either the address book or messages. I chose address book. I was offered only one option which was text file (seperated by commas). This I did and it was saved as an Excel sheet of approx 16kb.
How can I save both the messages and address books as a .pst file in OE6. I simply went down, File - Export and thats it.
sorry to be a real eegit - but I have spent all afternoon trying to do this and using the Helpfiles. As far as I can see, there is only two formats which OE exports, WAB abd CSV.
I understood that I needed to export them in PST format. If I get my friend to export in the preselected format to MY Docs and then import them from there, will this bring them in in the same layout and format as they were shown in OE.
