task view changed in to do bar

outlook 2007 froze when i closed it after i made a number of changes to my 
contacts.  when i rebooted and opened outlook, the task view in my to-do bar 
had changed from the "to-do list" to the "next 7 days" view (which i had 
customized earlier in the day).  i cannot find any way to change the task 
view that appears in the to-do bar back to the to-do list.  i have seen one 
or 2 posts on other forums where users have reported the same problem, but no 
resolution.  does anyone know of a solution?  thanks!

Outlook changing attached file name
When I record a voice file as an .mp3 file and attach it to an Email the person receiving the attachment sees the file name as UNTITLED.BIN. If they leave a copy on the server and then access the server without using Outlook the file name remains voice.mp3. If the file "UNTITLED.BIN" is renamed back to "VOICE.MP3" it gets associated back to a media program and plays fine. To make the original file we are using a software program called mp3 recorder and using the PC's sound card and microphone. Using the .mp3 format rather than the ..wav cuts way down on file size and t...

Sroll Box within Scroll Bar
If I highlight a range in a work sheet to have row height increased and say range is from A1-A400. The scroll box within the scroll bar resizes for that range. If my spreadsheet however turns out to be only 50 rows(after entering data) not 400 the bar will still be sized to go from row 1 at the top to Row 400 at bottom(It can obvously go past that but the scroll box is sized for 400). I would like it to go back to its to size for the actual size of the data in the spreadsheet. I have tried to delete the rows from 50-400 but it has no effect.

CFileDialog & Details View Problem
I am attempting to set the view of the CFileDialog's ListCtrl to "Details" (LVS_REPORT) as its default. I get a pointer to the List and set the style with ModifyStyle(). Upon loading my CFileDialog, the Details view shows up, but it is missing all the columns. If I right click in the List window suddenly the columns will show up (along with a menu). If I change folders the columns disappear again (the ListCtrl is destroyed...). Also, if I pragmatically start adding columns myself, the rows are visible (but features such as sorting and icons are not available). On MSDN under...

On POS (not RMS) Instructions for Changing Noninventory Item, Price, Cost and Volume
We drop ship noninventory items to customers, and when the price, cost, or capacity of an item changes, we want to change it so it is reflected accurately on invoices. However, when we attempt to change the cost, price, and description, a message pops up stating "The item description is already in use." Of course it's already in use, we just want to edit it. Nothing else has changed, same Item Number, same Department, same Category; we're just not permitted to edit it. For example, if the Item Description were "Coke," and we attempt to change the Item Descriptio...

Concatenate Tasks With Summary Tasks in Reports
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.

Bar Graph bars from opposite direction
I am graphing a few numbers in a bar graph. Typically, the bottom of the bar is "0", or the minimum value, and it goes UP to my data point. I would like the bar to come from the maximum direction. I guess it starts at Infinity, and goes 'down' to my data point. I already know "Reverse Order" exists, but that justs flips the graph upside down. (And the bars will start at 0 still) I know I could do some tricks and work-arounds to meet my needs....but just want to make sure there's not a quick way to do it. example: (bar graph of values "5", "...

Requisition Management
I've run into a situation many times where a user creates a purchase requisition (BP 3.0) and submits to the next approver. Then I am notified that the user no longer reports to that person and that PR needs to be re-routed to their new boss. At that point, I go in Requsition Management Approval Hierarchies and place the user under their new manager. Is there anything that can be done in order for the existing PR to be routed to the new approver? I find that Req Management has very little flexibility when it comes to changes like this.

Updating tasks with VBA script
I've built a scheduling tool which uses Access to create the tasks. Once the tasks are generated, they're sent to Outlook. My problem is the tasks are grouped in categories and if a due date is changed it needs to move all the following tasks by x number of days. (My keyfield ie- 57-41, then 57-42, etc. is stored in the contacts field) I had planned to first pull the data back to Access to see what dates changed. Off of that data, I'd delete the following tasks and reinsert them with the modified dates. I would prefer to do this in Outlook but do not know the Outlook object mod...
