How do I import the email address auto complete entries (from a .NK2 file) into a different Outlook 2003 profile?

I have created a new Outlook 2003 profile and have set Outlook 2003 to prompt the users for which Outlook profile should be used.

This way, two users can check their own Outlook email by simply selecting their respective Outlook user profile when they launch Outlook.

The problem is, the new Outlook profile doesn't have any of the email address auto complete entries. Therefore, whenever someone types in the first few letters of an email address, the email address doesn't auto complete.

The operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 3.

How can I import the email address auto complete entries (from one user's Outlook 2003 profile [in a  .NK2 file]) into this other Outlook 2003 profile?

just change the name of the NK2 file to exactly match the PST file name.
It'd be a good idea to do the other files in the same folder as the NK2 file (.SRS etc.)

You will need to make a copy of the .n2k file and name it the same as the profile name.

or you use a program like nk2edit

sorry, i didn't quite read the OP.

Copy all files from the %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook folder into itself, then rename the copied files to match the name of the second outlook profile.

You don't need to import the .NK2 file - you can copy it from the old Outlook Profile to the new Outlook Profile and if necessary, rename the file to match the name of the new Outlook Profile.  Make sure Outlook is closed before replacing the file.

The regular path for the .NK2 file is:

C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
