How to convert notes to text files in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2014-09-24

Generally, Microsoft Outlook users can save notes individually with copying notes and pasting to any Windows folder. The saved note is an .msg file, and hardly exported to other tools. Actually, we can save notes as text files in Microsoft Outlook, even save mass notes as one text file in Microsoft Outlook.

Note: In Microsoft Outlook 2013, you can select multiple notes at the same time, and save them as one text file.

Step 2: Click the File > Save As.

Step 3: In the popping up Save As dialog box,

(1) Specify a folder to save the text file into;

(2) Enter a name for the text file in the File name box;

(3) Click the Save as type box, and select the Text Only from the drop down list;

(4) Click the Save button.

Then the selected note is converted into one text file at once.

Note: If you choose multiple notes to convert to text file in Outlook 2010 and 2007, after converting, the content of the notes won’t be displayed in the text file.
