    convert ANSI pst to unicode pst file

    Hello,

    I have a old pst file which is ANSI format. As it has a size limit of 2 GB, I want to convert ANSI PST to unicode PST File just as my outlok 2010 pst file. How can I do that easily?

    Thank you.

    Hi,Arran

    For that,you can create a PST file in Unicode format and then move all items from the PST file in ANSI format to the new file manually.

    Or, you can also use VBA to covert it. Here is a sample you can try:

    Private Sub ConvertANSIToUnicode()
    Dim objSourceFileFolders As Outlook.Folders
    Dim objFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Dim objNewPSTFileFolder As Outlook.Folder

    'Create a new PST file in Unicode format in your preferred local folder
    Outlook.Application.Session.AddStoreEx "E:\NewPST1.pst", olStoreUnicode
    Set objNewPSTFileFolder = Session.Folders.GetLast()

    'Get all the folders of the source PST file which is in old ANSI format
    'Change the "Personal" to the display name of your own PST file
    Set objSourceFileFolders = Outlook.Application.Session.Folders("Personal").Fo lders

    For Each objFolder In objSourceFileFolders
    objFolder.CopyTo objNewPSTFileFolder
    Next
    End Sub

    More details here:

    hope it heps.
