Transferring a Notebook

Discussion in 'Microsoft OneNote' started by Lori Schoettler, Mar 6, 2010.

    I am trying to transfer my data from a laptop to a netbook.

    Is it possible to move an entire notebook? I have tried several "save as"
    and they haven't worked.

    Is there a way to move an entire Noteboook in one fell-swoop

    Ironically, Onenote is what "pushed me" into moving to a small netbook
    rather than my usual laptop. It is smaller and more meeting friendly.

    Can you please HELP ME??????????

    1. A notebook is a FOLDER, not a file (containing the sections of that
    notebook as *.one files). So you have to copy a folder, named as your
    notebook.

    2. To find your notebook hold your mouse pointer over the name of your
    notebook in the navigation bar at the left. Write it down.

    3. Close OneNote

    4. Use Windows explorer to copy that folder to your netbook over the
    network or an USB stick

    5. The target folder on your netbook has to be the standard folder for
    notebooks in Onenote. It depends on the OS. So look into Tools, Options,
    Save for that standard folder. Copy your notebook folder into that folder.

    6. Open OneNote on the netbook and open the copied notebook using File,
    Open.
