OneNote 2010 Syncing

    So I've had a huge headache trying to sync a preexisting onenote notebook on
    my tablet to a desktop (and have the version stored on the desktop be the
    main version) ... here is the info for anyone else:

    I tried at first to share my tablet's onenote notebook by:

    share->share this notebook 2.)share on: NETWORK and 3. Network Location: a
    path on the desktop (it was a shared folder with all the right permissions)

    THIS DID NOT WORK.

    some of the various errors:
    user-mapped section open
    some sections could not be synced
    onenote cannot access the notebook cache file

    SOLUTION:
    It should be made clearer that you should create a local notebook on the
    server using its onenote, share it there, then open it from satellite
    computers.

    It took a few days of figuring to sync my tablet's onenote with the desktop.
    (I had created the notebook on the tablet first). to make it work I had to:

    change the notebook location back to the local (tablet) location, close
    notebook, then copy and upload the files to the desktop. Open up the
    desktop's onenote, open the onenote notebook, share it (at the local desktop
    location). Then on the tablet, I had to open up one note, then "open
    notebook", find the newly shared onenote notebook on the network share from
    the desktop, select it. and ouila, it works. At this point it helps to close
    the old non synched one.

    Of course I could have just used my tablet as a the server, but then I'd
    have to open up the desktop to have it sync properly instead of the more
    intuitive, open up my laptop and have it sync to my desktop for backup.

    When I have decided to share a notebook that I created on a local computer,
    all I did was close the notebook on that computer, then use Windows Explorer
    to copy its folder to the shared drive, then open the notebook from the new
    location.

    Alternatively, I think I've used "change location" in "properties" too, and
    that also seemed to work for me.

    Oops, I use ON2007, not ON2010 - disregard.

    Not necessarily !

    I don't believe the underlying procedure has changed (just too dangerous).

    1. I agree with you in so far as the best way relocating a notebook is
    closing all using OneNote instances and THEN moving it by Windows means.

    2. I disagree with the description it would be necessary to create a
    notebook with OneNote on the the same computer.
    I created my 1st notebook "original" on a share on my desktop over the
    network, using my tablet pc.

    Right!

    Exactly.
    In so far everything is as it used to be,

    Rightyright!

    Indeed it does not matter at all, *where* a notebook was created and
    *how*.

    A notebook is a notebook! <g>
    There is nothing *inside* a notebook related to the origin.

    However, the dialogs in ON2007 (and in ON2007 as well) appearing on
    creating a new notebook are seriously misleading!!
