Microsoft Outlook 2010 saves the autocomplete data as a hidden message in the mailbox store. In previous versions of Outlook, that autocomplete was in the NK2 file in the users profile folder.  You can use a tool called MFCMAPI.exe to export that hidden message to a file, & then use Outlook 2010 to import that back in. So, I don't think that will help you since it probably wouldn't work in Outlook 2007.

Here's MS's KB on that:

So, you might want to go with a third party tool by Nirsoft called NK2 Edit:

I found another way to do this:
1.  Copy the 2007 NK2 file to the user's profile folder on the server (%appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook)
2.  Rename so it matches their Outlook profile name, such as Outlook.NK2 or Default Outlook Profile.NK2
3.  Shadow the user on the server, start outlook from either RUN or a command prompt by typing this in:  
        outlook /importnk2

If access to RUN or the command prompt is restricted for users in your environment, you'd have to customize an outlook shortcut for them to start Outlook using that switch. The target path for the shortcut would be:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\outlook.exe" /importnk2

Open in new window
