On the XP/Office 97/Outlook 2003 Pc, I copied the Outlook folder from this path:
C:\Documents and Settings\XXX\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook>
The files in that folder are as follows:

I expected to find a NK2 address autocomplete file. Any idea where I can find it and import it into Office 2007?

    Did you make sure to enable viewing of 'hidden file and folders'?

    You are looking for the Outlook.NK2 file (or what name the Outlook profile was called).

    Accepted Solution

    Send an e-mail to someone from the user's account from Outlook and then look for the NK2 from a command prompt:

    dir *.nk2 /s /a

    That will show you the folder and name to use.
