    Hi all,
    I heavily use Outlook Notes.
    I have almost 100 of them.
    Is there an automatic way to transfer all of them to Onenote?

    Thank you

    Jochen

    You'll have to cut 'n paste. And if you use Windows Phone 8.x, Outlook Notes don't sync with that either. Thanks Microsoft. Oddly enough, with or without Siri, my iPhone handles Notes with my Hosted Exchange account better than my Windows Phone 8.x. Voice initiated notes on my WP go into OneNote, with my recording attached. On my iPhone, they go into the Notes app, recording-free, which syncs OTA with Notes in Outlook — perfect, if I need to do something more with the info in a Note, I can cut ’n paste it to a new home.

    Cut 'n paste is ok. Normally. But not for 100+ notes.
    I found another solution:

    http://blog.team-studer.com/jon/2012/09/02/importing-outlook-2010-notes-into-onenote-2010-gtd/

    The macro is supposed to create a folder on your c:drive “MyOutlookNotes".
    That didn't work for me.
    So I created it manually and after that it worked like a charm.

    Beware: should you already use another macro inside Outlook, it may disappear, when you cut ’n paste this one. At least that happened with me. (I never created a macro before and don't know the editor at all.) So it may be a good idea to save your old macro first and implement it again when you are finished with this one.
