Export view Outlook 2016

Andrews Dumith 41 Reputation points

Hello every one;

I am in a project to update Office 2016 to 2019.

One of my users asks if it is possible to export Outlook 2016 views and then import them into Outlook 2019

Thank you in advance.

    As the View is stored within the mailbox itself, it isn't lost when upgrading Outlook 2016 to Outlook 2019.

    Anyway, you can save the XML of a View programmatically or via MFCMAPI.
    See: View.XML property (Outlook)

    Hi @Andrews Dumith ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    If you want to update Office 2016 to 2019, I have done the update test in my computer. Based on my tests, the view settings will remain in outlook 2019, which is consistent with RobertSparnaaij. You don't have to worry about losing views, just do it!

    If you need to export view settings, as I know, there's no such way to export it. And I found a thread about this, please refer to: Outlook 2010: How to copy Microsoft Outlook custom views to backup or share.
    (Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.)

    Hope the above help!
