You should copy the file from the 2007 computer under: %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook

The nk2 file must be the same name as your 2013 profile

Then go to Start -> Run -> outlook.exe /importnk2

Roaming, If you go to Start -> Run -> and type %appdata%\microsoft\outlook it will take you to:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\microsoft\outlook
