Is there some file or way to save/view/edit the cached database of names that Outlook saves once you've entered them in the TO: field (autocomplete?)

I think I need to uninstall/re-install Office and am afraid I'll lose them.  Have already created a new profile and they're not there.  If I could transfer them from the old profile to the new profie, that might be a good fix...

thx.

Search for files named *.NIK.  If you're using Win2K or XP, it's in C:\Documents and Settings\{profile}\application data\microsoft\outlook.

Thanks looks like it - btw ANY WAY to export it/edit it?  

Or, in my case, if I want to create a new profile, I assume if I'm out of OUtlook, then I can just copy the file over to the default directory?

thanks!

I'm all set.  FOUND the nk2 file, and was able to make a copy of it renamed to another profile, and then those addresses were available to THAT profile.  Thanks!
