outlook 2003 is MIA I did a detect and repair in excel 03 and after that
outlook gives me error message; the operation failed due to an installation
problem. Restart outlook and try again. If problem persists, please
reinstall. Well my cd from original purchase will not load. The file on the
disk come up but it will not run set-up. error message; the installation
source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and
that you can access it. So I installed office pro 2007 trial version and
followed instructions hoping I would get outlook 2007 and be able to access
folders in otlook 03. But outlook 07 does not install and yes I read the
message on how to install outlook 07 and remove 03. I just ran office
diagnostic and it detected all 07 product for office 07(except outlook) and
only found outlook 03 not any other office 03 products which still work and I
did not remove them

Since Outlook 2007 won't install if Outlook 2003 remains on disk, you mist
uninstall OL 2003 first.

If you run the repair install from Add/Remove Programs, can you designate the
installation disk as the repair source? Do you have a folder called MSOCache
on your hard drive? Did you change hard drives at all between when this
worked and now?

What I want to find is my personal folder files which contain emails that I
need as well as contacts list. I uninstalled 07 and reinstalled all 03
products. Everything works now but all my saved emails in my personal
folders are mia. Can these be retrieved and how?

I did a search for .pst files to no avail. I did not change hard drives. It
quit working after a detect and repair in Excel 2003.

What do you see when you click File -> Open -> Outlook Data File and
tell it to look in %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook

If you see PST files there, that's probably where your data is.

Did you enable viewing hidden files and folders? The default location for
PSTs in a hidden folder. That folder is %UserProfile%\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook for Windows XP and
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Outlook for Windows Vista and 7.
