I have a user who was migrated to Office 2010, but hates it. The migration was more than 3 months ago and now this person is going back to 2003.

Is there a way to extract the auto-complete information in Outlook 2010 and import it into an NK2 file for Outlook 2003?

Personally I don't know of any way BUT ... nk2 is the nickname file and comprises predicitive addresses from the previously sent emails.

See http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_26499582.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+build+chri+nk2

But from my subsequent invest I would suggest NK2Edit is easier than the macro ... but i'll leave it to you.  Of course if you require further help with it then get back here to make the request.

BTW, I wasn't clear but the theory is move the mails back to olk2000 and once that is done run the routine/app to recreate the nickname file.

I would try and get it done with NK2Edit as well (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_edit.html).  Under Outlook 2010 nk2 files are no longer used and replaced by "autocomplete streams", with the info stored in a DAT file in the users profile area. The NK2Edit utility will allow you to "save as" the Outlook 2010 nickname info to a NK2 file though.  Then you can take that to the Outlook 2003 system, and either copy it over the default NK2 file, or import the data into it using NK2Edit.
