    Can I export my 2003 notes into OneNote 2007? Any other way of showing my
    'old' notes from OneNote 2003 in my new software (2007?)

    If you open the notebooks in ON2010 they will automatically be
    converted.

    Pls note: This is a one-way-street. There is no way to downgrade the
    notebooks once they are in the new format.
    So make sure that you have backups in case you would want to further
    work with ON2003.

    I believe you can convert from 2010 format back to 2007 format -- and
    vice versa:

    File | Info | Settings (for each Notebook) | Properties

    You will get a warning, I believe, that if you go from 2010 format to
    2007 format you may lose special properties that are available only in
    2010 format. This is similar to the warning in Word 07 -- where going
    from .docx file format to .doc produces a similar warning.

    Absolutely correct!!
    Thanks for pointing to this, David.

    Most serious typo of mine. {grrrrhhh}
    As the question was on ON2007 I wrote on the situation *there*.
    However, by mistake I typed "210".

    Thanks again

    Guys, the original question was about converting from 2003 to 2007. In
    that situation, the conversion is one-way, at least according to the
    info I had at the time I converted my data over. Converting between
    2010 and 2007 may be a two-way street, but the 2003->2007 move is one
    way only. Therefore, I recommend making a COMPLETE backup of
    everything in your OneNote files BEFORE doing any conversion from 2003
    format, just in case.

    As the saying goes:

    "Blessed are the pessimists, for they hath made backups!" :)
