    As my edition of Office 2003 Beta expired, I uninstalled it as directed. I reinstalled Office XP but am unable to access my .pst file from the 2003 Beta version. I get an error message that it is not compatible with my version of Office and to contact my administrator. This .pst file holds all of my important information. How can i transfer it or adapt it to Office XP?
