    Export and Import (Office 2003 sp 1)

    I have been trying to export my .pst file from my desktop to the laptop, that is using export and import. I can manage export but when I come to import into my laptop, I receive the message
    "you do not have permissions to perform this task"
    Should I be using some form of synchronisation,? and if so how do I do that?

    Is the intermediary format a PST? If so, can you use File>Open>Outlook Data File to open the newly created PST alongside your existing one? If not, what kind of error message do you get?

    yes Is am using .pst.
    I seem unable to export to a CD, so I exported the .pst file to the hard drive in a different directory, then copied that using Nero to a CD. But when I try to import to the laptop, I receive the message " I do not have permission to access this file"
    All I want to do is to synchronise between the desktop and laptop. I am sure I have dont this before, but just cannot get it to work now.
    I am wireless networked, is there a better way? Nancye thanks

    All I do is copy the pst to a removable media and then copy it to a junk folder on the new machine. I then import to my NEW pst file that was made when I set the new machine. This way I do NOT have to fight the file in use or ownership errors.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
