How to Convert 97-2002 PSTs to Outlook 2003


I have 400 users that our using PST files created from the old Outlook 97 format. We upgraded to Outlook 2003 a few months back, and I now want to upgrade the old 97 PST format to 2003. How can this be done? FYI.. Not sure if it matters, but we are using Exchange 5.5.

Didn't look at Sunray's links but I recently just attached the old97 .pst file, copied all the items to the new, default 2003 .pst file and then just detached and tossed the old format.

I am not sure about any automatic way of doing for all his 400 users.. There could be some easy way , I am not sure
