    Outlook will not export

    When I try to export from Outlook (PST), after selecting 'export to a file' and clicking 'Next', nothing happens.

    I've done this many times in the past, without any problems.

    Environment: Office 2003 Professional SP3, Windows 7 Professional.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    In case anyone else has the problem in the future, I found the answer, with a bit of help from Google.

    It seems that, unless you change the option during installation, even basic import and export facilities are not enabled. There is actually no export option listed in the install, but there is a section of 'Import from Other Formats', which are not installed by default. I found that, if I installed these (apart from obvious ones like Lotus Notes that I knew I didn't need), the export feature was enabled and worked normally.

    Tricky stuff, Microsoft!
