Outlook won't archive - PLEASE ANSWER THIS VERSION not previous post!

Sorry for posting this twice -- I forgot to tick the email notification box last time!

Outlook won't archive
I am trying to archive my standalone instal of Outlook 2003 on a networked PC running under Windows XP Pro, V.5.1, SP3.
However, when I click on it to archive, nothing happens. I am trying to archive all my inbox mail folders and items that are older than January 1, 2007.
I have been very naughty in letting this build up to a huge size by just browsing stuff in the reading pane and not filing stuff I want to keep over many years. there are now nearly 6,000 items here.
In all other respects, Outlook 2003 works fine.
Can anybody help me please?

You may want to back them up instead. Use the import/export option in the file section. Export as a .pst file and drop them on to disc.

Thanks, Mr. Bean. that's a practical suggestion I had not considered if it won't otherwise work. I do back it up anyway. But I really need the archiving to work the way it's designed to.
