Find a file called preferences.dat on the old system. Make sure it belongs to onenote (it's a generic file name). If you can find it, copy to the same or comparible location on the other one.

well, it appears to change the .dat file from 105kb to 502kb but after restarting Onenote it seems to not bring anything over.  I am moving it to a new profile (name) in XP.  Could that be anything???

OK - here is the issue.  If you copy the .dat file over, the OneNote app must be closed and not running.  If you just copy and paste while running, you will get no indication this process cannot be completed (file in use message).  But once I shut it all down and then pasted the .dat file things worked great!

Thanks
