    I have changed OSs. Went from XP to Windows 2000 as is more stable for my press publishing needs. I copied my .pst contact list from msoutlook to a disk with the thought of copying it into msoutlook in wk2000 however I can't find the .pst file to copy it into. Could someone help me? I searched for .pst files but to no avail.
    thanks

    I am not too familiar with Outlook but, if you create a new contact. ( a dud one ), this should create a PST file. Once it is created, search for it, then replace it with the one you have on disk.

    Just a thought!!!

    First make sure to show hidden files under folder options.

    C:\Documents and Settings\[Name of profile]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\[blah blah.pst]

    Thankyou. The reason I couldn't find the .pst file was because it was hidden. Once i found it I was able to copy and past successfully.

    If you still cannot find it. Try from a Command Prompt typing: DIR \*.PST /S

    As Search sometimes acts flaky.
