UDF in this item; view problem; upgrade from 2003 to 2010



I have Office 2010 beta. I exported my Outlook 2003 to a .pst file, then
imported to Outlook 2010 beta. Most everything works well.

I would like to view ALL of my old "UDF in this item"s in the view mode.

I have created a new view, HOWEVER, it will not show any of my OLD "UDF's in
this item." I am able to add any Office pre-assigned drop down items.

Is there a way to view my UDF in this item, without going to each individual
I was able in 2003 version to sort & view all of them.

Did I incorrectly import?

You never transfer Outlook data using export and import. Use one of the
correct methods we post here daily if you want your data to remain intact.

Re: "Did I incorrectly import?"

You neither exported or imported incorrectly. What you have discovered,
however, is that PST2PST import/export does not carry forward the
"User-Defined Fields In Folder" which is what is used for views (this is
true for all versions of Outlook)

If you know all your UDF's - simply add them to your folder making sure
that you re-add using the "exact" same UDF name AND <Field Type> as
originally defined.

If you don't know all your UDF's - then you might find ContactGenie Toolkit
of interest
(there are functions specifically related to user-defined fields)
