    I recently purchased a new computer with Windows 7 and on my old computer
    with windows XP I loaded one note files on a DVD. I installed Microsoft
    Office home and student 2007 on my new computer (the same program as on my
    old computer). How do I put these files on my new computer. I can easily put
    the document files from DVD disc from my old computer to my new one. But I
    cannot figure out how to do it in One Note. I have searched the internet and
    the one note help program but with no luck.

    John,
    If I understood you correctly, what you want to do is to copy OneNote
    notebooks from the DVD to your new computer.
    You should look for *.one files (these are OneNote sections) and copy the
    folders which contain those files to your new computer (folders are OneNote
    notebooks).
    If you want to do this from within OneNote, follow these steps:
    1. Open the notebook you'd like to copy
    2. Go to File > Save as
    3. Browse to the location on your new computer that will contain the notebook
    4. Fill in the file name
    5. Select OneNote Single File package from Save as Type
    6. Select Current Notebook and click Save
    Then, by double clicking the file you just created, you will start the
    unpacking process. You will be prompted to fill in the name, where you will
    use the notebook and to confirm its location.

    I hope this helps.
