In a Win 2003 domain, I'm moving a user who (from Win XP, Office 97 and Outlook 2003) to (XP, Office 2007).

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'?
Alan HardistyCommented:
You are looking for the Outlook.NK2 file (or what name the Outlook profile was called).
Adam LeinssCommented:
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.
