I exported the messages and selected profile Outlook. It worked through all
the folders like I wanted but did not give me a file name. Where is the
export file that I can put on my other computer?

The data was exported to the PST file of the OL profile you chose.

Some OL-specific newsgroups:

news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.outlook
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.outlook.configuration
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.outlook.Contacts
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.outlook.General

The data went to the Outlook PST file.

Are you going to be using Outlook Express on the other PC or Outlook97/98/2000+

If you are going to be using Outlook Express, you don't want to use the Export function.
That is for switching mail programs, not for switching PCs. Instead see:
Backing Up, Recovering and Restoring Outlook Express versions 5 & 6 Files and Settings
