We want to import into OneNote 2016 our notes in Outlook 2010.  We have successfully exported the notes into ascii file but importing them into OneNote not successful.  Though we can transfer them using send to print from Outlook to OneNote, the result is not the desired one.  This step brings in the notes as an image in OneNote.  What we want it to have those note as a document entered, words and letters not  an image. If it cannot be done, is there some  sort VBA for Onenote 2016 that can perform this?

Have you tried simply opening the .ONE files?  That worked for me. I was on One Note 2010 and just opened in One Note 2013 and then later in One Note 2016 and it all worked. I have all my One Notes looking like they should.

We already exported from outlook 2010 to ascii file.   Now we need to import this file to OneNote 2016.

How can we import to on2016?

Sorry about my confusion.

Try this. You can export Outlook Notes. The standard format is Unicode .MSG file. But you can also export as TEXT. From there, import or past into One Note should be fairly easy.

The export is done; how do we import? (that "easy" part is what we are trying to do)

What can you open the ASCII file in (besides One Note). Can you open in Word, Word Pad, or Notepad?  Then paste into One Note.

You can also print to OneNote. Here's the KB article for OneNote 2016.

Also, there's Send to OneNote.

And finally, you can use the "Repair" option, by going to the "Program and features" section.

We think we have not transfer out need clearly.  

Let us explain what we want:
We would like to transfer the data in note of Outlook 2010 to OneNote 2016, but we would like the data to be imported per notes.  We already tried send, print, copy/paste and the results is not what is wanted.

That said, below is an image of a "what-if" result if we get to transfer the notes; how we would like them be in OneNote 2016:

You will probably have to write some code to do this. There is no native way except manually to copy and paste per Outlook Note to a comparable One Note item.

Yes that is what we thought; thus the question contents, "If it cannot be done, is there some  sort VBA for Onenote 2016 that can perform this?"

Do you know of any we can go for?

I did some search and did not anything that will do this for you. You will need to contract for some custom code to do this.

Hey Rayluvs, have you tried a simple copy/paste? It brings each note in looking like a message that you can then double click to reveal the contents.
OR Export to a csv file, format the ss and save as an XLSX and then insert the spreadsheet. That will bring the contents in as an editable Excel SS
