How do I automatically prompt to file a sent message?
As a former NOTES user, I've become accustomed to being able to both send and
file an email in "one" step. In Outlook the default is to file the sent item
in the "sent" folder, or the folder in which the original message resides.
I'd like the option of choosing any folder in which to file the sent message
to come up automatically when I send an email.
See http://www.outlookcode.com/d/code/setsavefolder.htm for sample VBA code
to do this.

I can find the total and maximum for each group using arrays.
1. What I like is the name of who has the highest value in each group.
2. If they are tied then all the names that are tied maximum.
3. If possible all the names in the group with a value over 2.

I recently upgraded to Outlook 2003 from 2000.
I believe 2000 used to choose email addresses based on the Full Name
2003 appears to choose based on the Email Display name.
Most of my email Display Names are just the email addresses.
What is the easiest way to copy the Full Name to the email Display
What do you mean by "choose email addresses?" The Display Name has varied
with each version of Outlook, but it is of no consequence. What makes you

well, an ascii file is a binary file... just the bits happen to be easily

Depends on what you mean by update. If it's just to add more data to the
bottom of an existing list, open both files, then select the data, Edit/Copy
it and Edit/Paste to the other workbook.
If that's not what you want, can you be more specific?
