    No good exporting default? (I dont have 2013) does 2013 not use .pst files?

    Export to file:
    Comma separated values
    .pst
    Tab seperated (dos/windows)?

    I use Sync PST for Outlook. Allows me to load two pst files and copy (between the two either way) only what I want to e.x. contacts/email/calendar etc

    Backup the contacts as .pst file from office 2007 by exporting it. Go to File/Export , click on Export to a file, then pick, pick outlook Data File, click next, when the box comes up, highlight Contacts, click next, name the file Contacts.pst and put it in a folder like in Downloads where you can find it
    copy the file to a usb drive and put it on the new machine
    then go into office 2013 and again click File/open& export
    click Import/Export
    pick Import from another program file
    highlight Outlook Data File
    click on Browse and find the pst file you created and click next, click Finish and it should import your contacts

    I imported my contacts.to outlook 2013 and the file got messed up. I then re-imported the file and Outlook created a new file! Outlook insists on using the original messed up file for address book etc. I can't erase or eliminate the first file. How can I either move the data from the second file to the first one or have Outlook use the second file?
