Sharing Tasks in the 2007 versions of Project and Outlook


I would like to export and work on my Project 07 tasks in Outlook 07.  I am 
aware of how I can export them but this does not keep the link with Project.

Could anyone tell me if there is a way of doing this in Microsoft or if 
there is an add-in I could purchase.

Word 2007 macros
I used to make macros in 2003 with the suffix of .MAIN. This allowed me to copy individual macros from one template to another, one computer to another. If I failed to use the .MAIN, I was given only the choice of NEWMACROS to copy. Of course, if the destination also had NEWMACROS, they'd be overwritten. Now I am trying to do the same with 2007. I created 4 macros with .MAIN suffix and put them on the Quick Access Toolbar (with a view to putting the same macros on three different computers). However, whichever macro I click on, they are all the same macro. If I run...

Assign a task from a Public Folder to another user
Hello, I am trying to organize a large scale tasks tickler system where everyone can view the master task list and where senior managers can can assign tasks to subordinates. My first approach was to create the task folder in a public folder. Much to my dismay there doesn't seem to be any way to assign the task to another user and still monitor the task in the master public folder task list. First there was no "assign task" command on the toolbar. After adding the "assign task" icon I discovered that the task was added to my personal task list vice the master task li...

Everytime I try, the installation fails with the error "Microsoft Home and Student 2007 encountered an error during setup." I tried unchecking everything during setup except OneNote.

Word 2007 TOCs Bookmarks

Sharing Calendar, can you share contacts too?
We have an administrative secretary, who maintains 3 high level administrator's calendars... we use outlook 2003 with exchange 2003, she opens their shared calendars and edits them... Maybe I'm overlooking a really simple answer... but is there a way she could similarly edit their personal address books (they all use palm pilots and want their own individual contact lists).... Any ideas appreciated... Thanks! Sure, just need to delegate rights to those folders and she can "Open Other user's Folder" and choose Contacts. "Ken Montgomery" <KenMontg...

Appointment activity
Hi, why is it that when you remove future appointment from Outlook calendar it also removes activity (like it should), however when you remove past appointments from Outlook it doesn´t remove activity from activity list. It doesn´t matter if both are not closed activities. Past appointments are not in sync with linked activity? I dont know the technical reason, but I can think of a good functional reason why this behaviour would exist. Appointments in the future have not yet been there. If they are cancelled, then they should be cancelled in CRM as well because the event w...

Shared Workbook Query
Hi, I have set up a shared workbook for 20+ users. I am aware that share workbooks in Excel (I have version 2002) have limited functionality an that you cannot for example merge cells. However, if there are merged cells in another worksheet and someon wants to copy across text (which includes merged cells) into the share workbook it removes the merged formatting. At present I have to take the share off the workbook and then cop across the data (which includes merged cells) then reshare the workboo so that the formatting is maintained. Is there any other way around this problem so that peo...

Comparing Versions
Hi, I looked around the Microsoft Office Suite website a bit today, and I found a page that compared PREVIOUS versions against each other in sort of a table format. Here's the link : I like this format, but I cannot find a page that includes 2007 in the mix. There's of course links about why I should try the 2007 version but it's not a table, so I'm not readily able to see the benefits of 2007 over 2003 over other older versions. 1) Does anyone here have a link to a side-by-side comparison table for P...

Sharing Outlook between profiles?
I am running a 2k server (no exchange server) and need the laptops that connect into the domain to be able to view and send emails when connected, and when disconnected. The laptops have just been reloaded after using Novell. The advantage of the novell client was that it used the same local profile for connecting into the domain, and when using the workstation only. With the 2k server however, it uses one profile for the domain, and one for the local workstation. This is where Outlook 2000 is falling over... Please help... ...

Excel 2007
I am not really sure what to call this or if it's even possible, can you freeze a row, then while scrolling down have the frozen row be replaced by another row that will be frozen and so on? For example: I freeze row 5 which has column headers. As I scroll down the spreadsheet I reach row 100, which has different column headers. Can the headers be replaced so now row 100 is frozen? But at the same time once I scroll back up above row 100 it would resort back to the headers in row 5.... Put the disparate data on sheet2 stew wrote: > I am not really sure what to...

Office 2000 Using Outlook 2003
Has anyone had a problem with using Office 2000 and Outlook 2003. One of our users, when trying to e-mail a document directly from word, is getting an error message that word cannot load the e-mail envelope. The user can go to file, send as attachment and it works. It just won't work when you try to send it from the word document. That is correct. That functionality only works when Word and Outlook are the same version. A mail merge from within Word doesn't work anymore either and selecting Word as the e-mail editor isn't possible as well. -- Roady [MVP] www.sparnaaij....
