Upgraded from office 97 to 2000. My outlook inbox is empty, my calender is gone and my address book with names and numbers is gone. Where is it located and how can I get it back into the Outlook 2000?

If using Outlook and you performed an upgrade, do a search on your system for your "outlook.pst" file.  This file contains all of your personal information (mail, calendar, addy book, etc.).  Once the file is found, you can just copy the file into c:\Documents and Settings\UserNameHere\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
