Restore Outlook 2003
I had a problem with my HD which required reformatting the drive.
Fortunately, I did have my outlook.pst file backed-up. I have now
reinstalled Windows XP Pro and MS Office 2003. When I entered Outlook, I did
not see my email messages or contacts. So, I copied my backed-up copy of
outlook.pst to the outlook directory (beneath the My Documents directory)
and clicked File/Open/Outlook Data File. Then they appeared in separate
places on my screen. I have several questions at this point.
1. Have I proceeded correctly so far in trying to get back to my original
state before the HD problem?
2....File in Use problem
I'm revisiting some VBS scripts that I wrote several years ago to generate
resumes for me (via Word macros) and would like some guidance on a couple of
errors I am getting. I'll post about the two errors separately so that each
has its own thread.
My VBS script is pretty simple:

MsgBox "Too many arguments; expecting none."

How to install OWA2003 in one another server, separate of the server of the

You can't. OWA is now integrated into Exchange and cannot be separated like
you could with Exchange 5.5 installing only OWA.

A client of mine wrote me the following IM's earlier regarding his boss's
email account. It appears that there hasn't been any change in
configurations on the server and that it was just noticed today/very
recently. While I'm not an Exchange2003 expert, I have used it a little and
never ran across any clients that have used it before until now. Does
anyone have any suggestions at what route to take when reading this? I
admit this discussion with me and the client seems to be broad, but I was
trying to gather as much info as possible to troubleshoot:
I have created a chart that has multiple data.
Goal - 2000000
Present - 4,500,000
January - 450,000
I have the column stacked on top of each other.
BUT THE PROBLEM IS that if someone is reading the graph they think that
presently we are at 6,500,000. Because the goal is below it @ 2,000,000 and
it adds the presently on top of it.
I need them to over lap each other. So the numbers on the left are correct.
I have used a stacked column graph.
Don't stack the columns then. Use Cluster column chart type instead.
Set the overlap value to 100.

Here is my issue:
My company has a remote office in Montana. We have 2 Cisco 501 Pix
connecting the sites via VPN. The 2003 Servers from WA can see the
Montana office with no problem as can all the Workstations. The 2
windows 2000 SP4 Servers however can not see the 2003 server in Montana
or vice versa. When pinging the servers from either side it does reolve
to the correct IP however the ping drops. Every other IP connects fine.
Something in the 2000 servers are blocking the connection over the VPN
any ideas would be great...

I was noticing that my computer would take an inordinately long time (like
10 minutes) to complete its shutdown from time to time. I've finally
isolated the problem-- it only occurs when OUTLOOK.EXE is still shown as a
running process in the Task Manager. (Note that the APPLICATION is not
running, just the process, showing 16,788 KB.)
I've tried using the END PROCESS command, but to no avail. (I get the
warning message, and click YES, but nothing happens.) How can I find out
what's causing this, and how do I stop it from happening? There doesn't
seem to be any rhyme...Help .... problems with exchange ...

...How to rebuild public folders in Exchange 2003
I have run into a problem with a migration from Exchange
2000 to Exchange 2003. The public folders appear to be
messed up. This stems back to a migration from 5.5 to
2000. At this point the public folders are empty. I
would like to rebuild them, but am looking for the best
approach to do this. I have seen article 822444, but it
also references rebuilding the public folders.
...Sort Inbox items by Unread in Outlook 2003 doesn't work
I customized my inbox view to sort items by unread. Unfortunately, the
messages are not sorted have read and unread messages intermixed in my inbox
(sorted by date). I wanted unread messages first then read messages
afterwards. The primary sort would be unread ascending (descending didn't
work either) and secondary sort would be by date. The group by is none
since unread was not an option and automatically group according to this
arrangement is turned off (tried with it on & didn't work either). The
inbox shows that it is arranged by custom.
Any suggestions on how to fix this...Tab Index Problem
I am trying to set the tab index values for my form controls. The
problem is that even though I enter a certain value for a particular
tab index, it is not saved. It seems to be automatically reassigned.
I have tried starting from the end and assigning a high number to
those controls so that the lower indeces are available. The tab index
values for the controls throughout the form are still being reassigned
How can I get the index values that I assign to stay?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Instead of trying to set the tab index, open VIEW > TAB ORDER and drag and

get to explain the differences. thnx
It's probably not worth the price of the upgrade.
There's really not much more that you can do with 2003
that you can't do in 2000.

Every time Microsoft does a new improved version of Office it ruins what few
features it had before that worked. Going to Office 2003 (from 2000)makes a
real mess of almost all of Office (it ruined what formatting I had in
WORD -- the numbering goes to some default that MS thinks I *should*
want). It also makes it impossible for me to find people (not CONTACTS,
these are FRIENDS) I had in my address book in Outlook. For example I used
to be able to type in my friends' nicknames, but that doesn't work in 2003
