I have exported my outlook 2003 pst files to my desktop and have now tried to
copy them or move them to my outlook 2002 home pc. I recieve an error message
that states that the pst file is not compatible with this personal folders
service. Is it an issue going from outlook 2003 to 2002? and how to I move
pst files from outlook 2003 to 2002? Both computers are running XP
Professional.

This is one of the many reasons you should never export Outlook data: you
have no control over the file format.
PST files in Outlook 2003 are not compatible with earlier versions. You must
first create a PST file in the previous "Outlook 97-2002" format while still
in Outlook 2003, then copy the data you need into that file.
