  1. Mickle22 - yep, totally agree, lot's of cleanup required with this method, but I haven't found anything better either. I expect Microsoft quit supporting their migration tool because it required too much support for an app they give away for free. Oh, and once the notes are in OneNote 2016, you then have to share them to yourself to get them to show up on OneDrive so you can access them from other devices.
  2. Nothing is ever easy is it. I might have spoke a little too soon about how successful I was with using the Evernote2Onenote utility. If you want to get your newly imported notebooks up to OneDrive so you can access your notes from multiple devices, there's some hoops you need to jump through. I'm still working on this, but it's the whole transfer your notes from OneNote 2016 to OneNote for Windows issue (lot's of fun google reads on that). So not out of the woods yet.
  3. Like Jason above, I have tried everything I can think of to get the (unsupported) Microsoft OneNote importer to work and had no success. I finally have had some success using another tool mentioned in another thread - Stefans Tools Evernote2Onenote utility (Evernote2Onenote - Stefans Tools (stefankueng.com)). It does have some significant limitations, especially regarding notes with multiple tags - read the release notes carefully. I was able to get this to work by installing the OneNote desktop app (aka OneNote 2016, not the OneNote for Windows app) and the legacy Evernote app. When you run the Evernote2Onenote utility you may get a message "Could not find the ENScript.exe file" and will need to manually select this in the next dialog box. For me, this file was found in the C:Program Files (x86)/Evernote/Evernote Legacy directory. I was able to import my Evernote notebooks successfully using this utility, however I do have a lot of cleanup work to do to remove the duplicate notes due to the multiple tag limitation (I do not want to mess with my Evernote structure if I later decide OneNote isn't going to cut it for me). Jason, this might be worth a shot for you, your mileage may vary. --Doug
  4. I am having the same problem as Jason above. I was able to successfully import a notebook to Onenote once, deleted the notebook from Onenote (don't ask why), and have been unable to re-import it. I've gone to every synced device and deleted every local copies of the notebook I can find, but still get unexpected error message. Has anybody found a workaround for this? --Doug
