    I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

    Hello referee07;

    Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

    To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

    In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

    Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

    Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

    Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

    Hope this helps!

    Dave

    I_T_Doctor, thanks for the info. Too bad Microsoft doesn't make this any easier.
