    Wrong path to item shortcuts in all Journals (98)

    Hi. I imported the .pst file from my WinXP laptop to my old WinNT4 tower PC. The WinNT4 PC now has all the contacts, notes, etc., but...

    Wherever an attached shortcut appears in a Journal that's associated with a Contact, that shortcut to the Contact doesn't work. The reason is because Outlook thinks the path to the .pst file is

    Cocuments and SettingsOwnerApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook
    (good for WinXP computer; not for WinNT4 computer)

    instead of

    C:WinntProfilesAdministratorApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook

    How do I get Outlook to point thru the correct path for attached shortcuts? Do I have to reinstall Outlook?

    I discovered that I could correct each problem Item shortcut by deleting it, then reinserting thye correct Item. However, I know the date range of the problem journals, so I sorted them by date and counted 82 that would need to corrected. It would be too laborious to change each one the way I just described. Isn't there a more automated way to change them *all* at the same time, instead of individually?

    Could you not just create a new
    Cocuments and SettingsOwnerApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook
    path and move your .pst there?
