Transferring Andriod 'NOTES' from old Xperia Z to XZ.

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me with this because it is driving me mad at the moment.

 

I'm trying to transfer my Notes I have stored on my old Xperia Z running Andriod 5.1 (Lollipop) to 7.0 (Nougat). But for the life of me I don't see or can find a way of doing it!

 

My notes are very important to me and I must find a way to get them off, so can anyone please shine some light on this problem for me?

 

There's no Notes program on the new version for some reason or other which is a real shame because I found it one of the most useful Apps out there. Plain and simple worked very well!

 

Mike.

Many thanks for that fellow Tolkien fan! Slightly smiling Face

 

Still having no joy though.

I ran 'Total Commander' varying the seacrh criteria of (com.sonyericsson.notes) but with no success.

 

I've emailed each 'Note' to myself as a last resort which will be a pain in the rear to bring into a new program of some sort.

If that's the only way, what App would you recommend I should use bearing in mind I want something simple and long lasting over more than just one generation of OS?

 

Mike.

Problem is notes app is not used anymore so you can only export its data somewhere as Rickard said in that topic. I think exporting to email is the only option, I don't have a phone at hand with the old notes app to check but you should be able to export from the app itself.

Yes it looks like it because you can't export all of them on mass! Crying Face

 

You can send them one at a time using the normal Andriod options like here for example.

Oh well I guess I'll have to live with it and do it the hard way, so much for technology.

 

Many thanks for your help anyway and have a good Sunday! Slightly smiling Face
