Folder List View Save?

Using Outlook 2003 on Win 2k Server.

I prefer to use the Folder List view for my Personal Folders.  I'm having a
problem with Outlook remembering which folders were expanded when I close
and later reopen Outlook.

For example, if I have this folder hierarchy under  Personal Folders:

Let's say that I don't want to take up the screen space to show the
subfolders under "C".  I collapse that folder, and it now looks like this:

I then exit Outlook, shut the PC off and go home.  The next day, I start
everything up, and its still showing the subfolders under "C".  Obviously
this is a very simple example.  I have a client folder which goes as deep as
8 levels.  Seems like every time I expand down to a low level, then collapse
it back, the next time I go to Outlook it will still show that expanded

What's the trick to get Outlook to remember how you left your folder view?

Automating List Price Changes
We run a custom manufacturing business with over 2,000 parts in inventory. Each part is created with one of 10 different types of metals. In addition to the metal, there are costs for labor, natural gas, and overhead. Each part uses a different amount of metal and has a list price associated with it (Cards--> Inventory --> Item) in the Item Maintenance window. I am looking for a method to update list prices of parts based on a change in the underlying metal price, labor rate, overhead, or to increase/decrease profit margin. Changing each part individually is not an option with ove...

Views on multiple folders
In Outlook 2003 and Exchange Server. Hi, We’re dealing with a medium-high amount of folders in some shared mailboxes. I’d like to create two extra views for my co-workers for each folder. The two views are independent of the folder so i just have to navigate through the folder tree and creating the new views and make it public for the folder. My question is: .. where are really these views stored?? I guess on the server so I'm asking myself about the consequences in tearms of memory or performance of each user modyfing each view eventually on each folder. The serve...

Subform to mimick a list box
I am using Access 2003, and I need to conditionally format a list box. I know I cannot do that, so I've created a subform to make look like a list box and have applied conditional formatting to it. I have a checkbox in the subform so that when you click in any of the 3 fields in the subform/list, it will change that checkbox and then apply conditional formatting to all the fields (the conditional format is contingent upon that checkbox being checked or not). The conditional format just makes it "highlight" each field by changing the back and foreground colors. The proble...

Sharing Personal folders (.pst) across Windows installations in Outlook2000

Permissions Corruption on a Public Folder
Windows 2000 / Exchange 2000 / Outlook 2003 We're seeing consistent "corruption" of permissions a public folder. The public folder has permission blown wide open (default is "owner"). Everything is fine for a few days, then suddenly no one can add anything. They get: "The item could not save. The folder has been deleted or moved, or you do not have permissions..." etc. The folder hasn't been deleted or moved, and permissions haven't been touched -- they're still wide open. I fixed this once by creating a new folder and programatically ...
