    I need to save my MS Outlook Contacts from my PC at work (using Outlook 2003) to my PC at home (using Outlook 2000). I know how to use File> New> Outlook Data File> Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst)> OK to start, but that doesn't populate the new directory (or file or whatever it is) with the contacts.

    How do I copy/paste, translate, whatever the contacts into that new directory?
    Please reply to [email protected].

    Thanks and Merry Christmas! :)

    Go to you current Contacts.

    Hightlight them all - Ctrl-A

    Copy them to the buffer - Ctrl-C

    Go to the Contacts location in the new pst file

    Paste them back in again - Ctrl-V

    Thanks Bob. But this isn't working. I've managed to get my contacts from the PC at work. (They're currently on a memory stick and I'm saving them to my desktop. But my Outlook 2000 at home refuses to open the .pst file. (Remember, I'm trying to move my contacts from my Outlook 2003 at work to my Outlook 2000 at home.)
    If only I can make that last jump. I tried to import the file. I've copied and pasted. No workie.

    Any help would be appreciated.
