I have been using the beta version of Office 2007 til it expired last month and during that time exported a back up of Outlook (contacts, calendar etc) to My Docs.
Not all that fussed with the '07 Office suite, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled Office 2002 but when I try to import the pst file to this earlier version of Outlook, it tellss me that it is not compatible and to contact the Administrator (me!).

If I cannot work around this somehow I intend laying on the railway tracks quite shortly as life without my files will no longer have any meaning to me!

I guess as a last resort I can download the latest trial of 2007 Office and see if that will let me re-import the backed up pst file but what a drama!

saving contacts, calendar, etc to my docs, doesn't mention the pst file.

fwiw:
i export the address book to a floppy, save dbx files to a usb stick and use them between oe and outlook.

Thanks. . but that was not my intent. . I was looking for a way to take the pst files from outlook 2007 back to outlook 2003. . . . looks like I will have to dig out the backup tapes. . .

it was simple.

you needed copy the pst before uninstalling outlook, not sure if you'll find the pst file on backup tapes.
