  • Downgrade Office 2010 to 2007, need help getting NK2?

    I have a user that is moving computers. She was using Office 2010, and she will be using 2007. How do I get the auto-complete information from 2010 into a NK2 file, so office 2007 can recognize it?

      I know Outlook 2010 doesn't use NK2 files anymore. It still has the same feature though, i think they call it suggested contacts or something like that. But my user is going from Office 2010 to Office 2007. Surely there is a way to extract the "suggested contacts" from 2010 into a format that I can import into 2007. Or is it impossible to do this?

        at the moment, it doesn't seem possible... i've found an article that suggests it's stored here:

        C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Microsoft\UProof.
        in a file called custom.txt

        but i'm not certain.

          For Windows 7, it is "C:\Users\%USER%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\ CUSTOM.DIC"

          But that is just a 1KB file that contains a list of about 20 last names. Each last name looks like another user from the same exchange server. It doesn't include any email addresses and it doesn't contain the same amount of data as her NK2/Suggested Contacts do. So that file is probably not it.

            You can use this NK2 editor. It can hook into the auto complete cache in Outlook 2010 and you can save the entry's as well as modify them and port them to other user profiles.

              Why do you want the auto-complete stuff anyway?

                because it makes users feel all cosy and warm
                and because otherwise they'll tell you they can't send emails any more.

                  Lol....soooooo true.

                  Guys, forgive me for going slighty OT, but i'm going the other way, 2007 to 2010 and need to be able to either import the .nk2 file or at least get the users autofill database onto their 2010 profile in Exchange 2007.
                  Their argument is that their autofil is the only place they have with the record of the email address, without trawling through 1000's of message to find the right one.
                  i know, i know....but we're talking about users here......slightly lower down the intelligence chain from a single cell amoeba!
