Calendar and Tasks
Is it possible to have the tasks show up on the calendar?
No. Only beside it.
you can drag a task to the calendar if you need to assign a time to it.

I would like to move my Outlook files to a new P IV
computer. I believe that the file Outlook.pst will
include the email boxes, calendar and schedule, but I
don't know how to move either the POP3 accounts (I have
quite a few), settings, or the email rules (such as which
box to move what email into). I would like to have to
avoid setting this all up from scratch, so I hope someone
there has a solution.
I am also considering going back to Outlook Express for my
email, since I use the contacts and calendar function in
Outlook extensively to coordinate with my PocketPC. Does

I think I have found in other posts but I want to ask directly just in case
someone else has other info...
Can MSP concatenate each task in a report with its summary tasks? Without
this, I don't know what part of the project each task pertains to. (Example,
does "Buy space" pertain to the April or May set of tasks?) If I add a
breadcrumb to each task in the entry view, not only is this time consuming
but I also can't read the entry view as well as before.
This limitation severly cuts down on the usefulness of the reports for me.
In article <FFB3AE7E-881E...On calendars why can't I see busy/free data and why can't I use OO
When trying to schedule a meeting for anyone in/on my network I can't see
busy/free data because it specifies it cannot be retrieved. It only recently
started this in the last few weeks. How can that be fixed? Also, this past
week I noticed that I can no longer use the Out of Office Assistant. I get a
message stating that 'Your out of office settings cannot be displayed,
because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.' As far as I
can tell, the server is up and running.

I have a question regarding CRM task and Outlook Task on CRM v1.2, here
is the scenario:
"User A uses "CRM Task" on Outlook Sales Client to create a task and
assign to User B
User B updates the task on Outlook only and reply (or assign) back to
Will the updated task (from the Outlook side) be the same updated task
on the CRM if we don't use Online or Offline feature?"
Because what happen is my user (user A) showed me an error message
stating that there is an error synchronized task (from Outlook) to CRM task.

Hi. I want to assign an XML string to an XML attribute. This XML string must
undergo "escape" conversion so that the < and & symbols are converted in to
Does the .Net library have a conversion method that does this? Note that I

...Using Publisher for long reports
I write long reports (50 pages) in which layout and style are very important.
I'm thinking of switching from Word to Publisher since Word's management of
pictures and layout drives me wild.
Can anyone advise me if Publisher might be the right choice?
Does anyone have some long document templates they could show me?
It sounds like Publisher would be perfect for you since you indication that
the layout is important. I can't help with a sample tho because (1) the
longest I've done is about 24 pages and (2) my newsletters contain personal

I'm trying to switch over to OL2007 from Thunderbird. I have several email accounts, some IMAP, some POP3. It really gripes me the way OL2007 handles multiple accounts. Sending an email from any of my accounts defaults to having been sent from a default account. What's so hard about composing an email from within a particular "Inbox" and having the email appear to have been sent from that account?? Instead, unless I remember to change it manually each and every time, OL2007 will cause the email will appear to have been sent from another address entirely.
For example I w...Outlook opens, then hangs

...Use more than one timer event on a form?
I have a form on which I have set a timer event in order to display the
current date and time. The timer interval is set to 1000 and works as I want
it to. However, I also have a need to refresh a query on the form (actually
on a sub-form) at a regular interval; but not as often as the current time is
updated. So... my question is, is it possible to have more than one timer
event for a form/sub-form & how would I go about that, and if it's not
possible is there another way of going about what I'm trying to achieve?
Thanks very much

...Which outlook to get
Which outlook do I need to use email accounts.
I have outlook 2000 but understand that will not work with the new pop3
accounts. Would outlook 2003 be ok instead of paying for 2007.
I am only trying to use it like I did outlook express. Since hotmail
changed to the new windows live mail I cannot use outlook express to
see my three email accounts in different folders (inboxs).
I have a hotmail , gmail and verizon accounts
And I dont like the new Windows Live mail that was supposed to replace
Thanks for any suggestions

I am trying to apply a custom number format that returns the following
If the number is less than -1 it is formatted as (?#)
If the number is greather than +1 is is formatted as +?#
If it is between -1 and 1 the result is text saying "Unchanged"
But when I apply the following custom format--> [>1]+?#;[<-1] (?#); "Unch"
I get a strange result for numbers between -1 and 1. I get -Unch. I can't
figure out why it puts the - in front of the text.

You can't. Outlook uses one inbox for received mails but you can move the

"Fred" <firstname.lastname@example.org...Using/Editing Rules while Offline
We're running Exchange 2000 on an SBS2000 server and a using with Outlook
2003 on a laptop needs to have his calendar shared and edited so we moved
from a .PST file to an .OST file. Calendar problem solved.
New problem: when he is away from the office his Rules do not run and he
can't access them. Outlook just says he needs to connect to Exchange first.
Problem remains even when I move incoming mail to a .PST file, leaving the
..OST (attempting to retain Calendar sharing, etc).
Is this do-able? Or do we need to go with a 3rd-party rules add-in? Or.....?
