    then select Personal Folders , make sure that you also select Include Sub Folders.
    Then click NExt,
    chose the location

    then in 2007:

    then chose the location of the file

    In Outlook 2003, go file > new > PST file and choose to make it compatible with Office 97-2002.
    Then Export the original PST file to your desktop.
    Then import this file into the 97-2002 PST file.
    THEN you can export the 97-2002 PST file to the other computer, and import it there into Outlook 2000.
