XP-ert, not

I have a new XP-Pro machine with Outlook (not Express) 2002 and am transfering my old Outlook 2000 files to it.

I've succeeded with the emails, archives, folders, address book, dictionary, etc., but I'm unsure about the contacts nickname file.

In OL 2000 it's a .NICK file, and OL 2002 help says it is also in ME, NT4 and 2000 but, oddly, does not say what it is in XP! It says the .NICK file in Win2000 is in Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, and I imagine it's the same in XP.

But in that directory I find no .NICK file, rather a .NK2 file, nor do I find one on c:\ at all.

Does anyone know if this .NK2 file is my contacts nickname file?

Thanks for your expertise.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
