Can you be a bit more specific please? Do you mean you couldn't find the file? Do you have sufficient permission on the file you selected?

The fix turned out to be
1) Uninstall all Office 2007 components
2) Uninstall Office 2003
3) Reinstall Office 2003.
4) Update Office 2003

The Outlook file was seen with no problem after Step 3.
Thanks
