Can't import NK2 into Outlook 2007

NK2 Import Error
Hi,
 
 I need to copy NK2 file from Outlook 2003 and import it into Outlook 20007.
 As usual, I copied Outlook.NK2 file (from Outlook 2003) into C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook in the new computer with Outlook 2007.

Then I ran outlook.exe /importnk2, but I get an error like above. I have tried to import this Outlook.nk2 file into two different computers, but to no avail.
 If I can't import NK2 into Outlook 2007 using /importnk2 switch, is there any other way?

Nirsoft have a good tool worth trying: http://nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_edit.html

You can export the current .nk2 contents and then import them into the new profile with this tool, we have used it quite a bit with good success.

Actually I use that NK2Edit program too.
When I run NK2Edit, it shows all the entries in Outlook.NK2 file, but it fails to import into Outlook 2007.

Is it a .PST file? I would try to run ScanPST and check for errors.

Or you could try reconfiguring the profile for that mailbox it sounds like there is some sort of corruption occurring.

I discovered that you don't import NK2 file into Outlook 2007. All I had to do was to copy NK2 file into C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook folder.

I discovered that in Outlook 2007, you can just copy NK2 file directly into the NK2 folder. Don't need to run ImportNK2 command.
