Hi,

I want to be able to transfer the history dropdown list that automatically appears when you start typing in the addressee field.

Is this possible?


Thanks in advance!

What version of Outlook are you running? If it's a newer one (07-10)

You can transfer the list by taking a copy of the file which Outlook 2007 saved it in and then importing it into Outlook 2010.

If you simply upgraded from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010:

Type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK.
This should import the .nk2 file into the Outlook 2010 profile.

If you're moving to a new computer:

First you need to find you original file, depending on if you're using Windows XP or Windows 7 it may be in two different places
Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Windows 7 - C:\Users\%username%\Appdata\AppData\Roamingl\Microsoft\Outlook

Copy 'Outlook.nk2' to a safe location, e.g. a USB drive
On the new computer copy 'Outlook.nk2'to
Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Windows 7 - C:\Users\%username%\Appdata\AppData\Roamingl\Microsoft\Outlook
Open the 'Run' window by pressing the 'Windows (Flag) button' and 'R'
Type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK.
This should import the .nk2 file into the Outlook 2010 profile.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the help.

It's actually going from an Outlook 2003 to another Outlook 2003.

Will it work just the same?

The pc where it's coming from, is a Windows Server 2003.

Will it work just the same?
