How to transfer pst file and pab file from outlook 2003 to outlook 2000?
Posted on 2004-11-02
Refer to my previous question Q_21191703.html. Thanks SR.
I like to wrap up.
For some reasons, I need to transfer the settings and address book from a more update version of Outlook 2003 in one computer to an eariler version Outlook 2000 in another computer. According to the experts here, I think that all the stuff (includes the address book) is in the .pst file. Then, I create a .pst file, in the format of office 97 - office 2002 version, so that it is compatible to the Outlook 2000. I create the account for the staff who are going to use the Outlook 2000 (who previously use the Outlook 2003). Then I import the pst file. But it seems that no previous settings are loaded into the Outlook 2000. For example, the address book, there is no one in the contact. I tried to add the address book by importing the .pab. But the option is grey out. How to turn the Outlook 2000 from Internet Mail Only to Corporate mode? Am I doing the right things?
What is the concept of .pst, .pab and profile?
Does .pst include address book?
What else should I do to migrate from Outlook 2003 in one computer to Outlook 2000 in another computer?
Thanks for all replies.
