How to properly transfer an outlook.pst file?
For years I have struggled with "transferring" Outlook's .pst file, e.g.,
when doing a complete re-install of Windows or when a client buys a new PC
and wants their Outlook data transferred from their backup files. Invariably
something gets botched up and this usually means I have to spend hours
trying to resolve the mess created. I am assuming there must be a proper way
to do this and obviously I'm not doing it. What I'm hoping for is that
someone will provide a step-by-step procedure that WORKS.
My general practice has been to install Office, open Outlook and cre...Deleting old email account from Outlook

Does anyone know how to save the user settings for MS outlook 2003?
Thanks to all who reply,
The reason I would like to be able to save the user settings is so I'll be
able to restore these settings should I need to in case I had to do a clean
install of WinXP and office 2003 either on the same computer of on another
newly bought computer.

I vaguely recall an article I read that mentioned I could

How do you change the look of Notes from full-screen to a

Sounds like you dragged it too big or maximized it. Can you double-click the

Hope this helps!

I have designed a form in Excel and the data that is inputted i want to be
able to save in a separate worksheet. The problem i am having is that
eveytime i record the macro, it over writes the same row each time (if that
makes sense). For example if i copied every cell in the form and paste them
into the database Row 1, i then want the new piece of information inputted
into the form to go into Row 2 and then Row 3 etc.... But it keeps going
into Row 1, it wouldnt move down the rows.
Hopefully this makes sense to someone and someone can give me some advise.

not possible, it seems) or from outside, that the combo
