Office 2013 Upgrade

I am upgrading from Office 2003 to Office 2013. I am installing the 32 bit version.  I am on a Windows 7 machine.     From what I have read, I will have to uninstall Office 2003.   And it sounds like I can export pst files and import them into the new Office 2013 (or convert them).    What about calendar?  Rules and events?   Those should convert as well from the pst file?

Any ideas appreciated so I don't get into this and miss something critical.  I will have several users upset, but I am doing my machine first for testing.

First, back up your documents and email files (PST files).

Yes. Uninstall Office 2003 first.

Install Office 2013 and it should use your PST files just fine including mail, calendar and contacts.

I went from Office 2010 to Office 2013 with nothing at all lost.
