Transferring Data from Windows 7 to XP Pro

I have a desktop with XP Pro as its O/S and a laptop with Windows 7, both of which are networked. I want to import into XP Pro the contents of Outlook, Outlook Express, Word and Excel from Windows 7. How can I do this please? I can no longer find extensions dbx and .pst in Windows 7 for Outlook Express and Outlook. I haven’t searched for the others, as I suspect they same will apply.

Let's deal with the Word and Excel files first. The operating system isn't involved here - they are both Microsoft Office applications, so provided you have Office installed on both machines you can open and edit the files in either of the two Windows versions.
Ditto for Outlook, it's an MS Office programme too. You can export the contacts list, for instance, from one machine's Outlook to a file, and then import the file to the other machine over the network. Again, nothing will happen unless you have MS Office installed on the Desktop machine.
Outlook Express is no longer in existence.
