    Sometimes when I open Outlook it opens with the Inbox and Task list and folders windows (as I want it to) but, even when I click on a message to open it, the Outlook window stays on top and I have to minimize it in order to read the message.

  • 5. BCM Import Problem
    Hi all. I have a problem importing some data from an old database to a new one, so lokk here what I've done: 1. Exported all the data from database 1 (D1) 2. Created a new database D2 on a server, configured all the clients to use this new one, and imported the data from .bcm backup of D1 to D2 3.

Can you customize reports with user defined fields?

I have been unable to customize my reports to match user defined fields.  If 
MS understands that we all need to customize fields for specific company they 
must have a way to customize our reports using fields we create.

3.Printing Specific Report w/User Defined Fields

how do i print out a modified report using the custom columns? 

I have accounts set up. (We're a landscape architecture firm).  I've set up 
various user defined fileds to indicate which type of business each account 
is (architect, 
engineer, planner, etc.) i realize you can do this in the "area of interest" 
box, but there are far too many to list and some firms fall under several 

I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, but as a trial, i went into a 
couple of my accounts who i know are architects. at the top of the screen, i 
went to the "show" menu, clicked on user defined fields, and then put an "x" 
next to the Architect field.

Now i want to print out a report which would include only architects. 
I cilick on reports, accounts, by category, and then when i go to print out 
the report, under "modify report", custom columns and click the box 

This pulls together a list of ALL the accounts with a check mark next to all 
the architects.  however, the $64,000 question is:
is there a way to print up ONLY the architects under this report using the 
user defined fields? 

i know that's the long winded version of asking that question but if you 
have any info that would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks so much!

4.customize view, sort by user-defined fields in item (not folder)

Last year, using Outlook from office XP, I created a user-defined field 
called "Christmas Cards" it was a simple yes/no filed. Since then I've 
upgraded to Outlook 2003. 
All I want to do is create a list view of contacts showning the user-defined 
filed "Christmas Cards" - so I can print labels and know who I sent card to 
last year!
However when I select 'customize current view' I am only offered 
"User-defined fields in folder" and during the upgrade my field has become a 
"user-defined field in item" and therefore is not offered under the customize 
current view tab.

or point me to a relivant web page?
Charlie do I customize contact display to include a user-defined field

I need to create a second Mobile Phone field, Mobile Phone 2.  I went to the 
"All Fields" and then in the "Select From" drop down, I selected "Phone 
Number Fields".  I created a new field named "Mobile Phone 2" and it placed 
in the "user defined fields" category (I'm ok with that) and saved the 
contact.  I am trying to get the Mobile PH 2 field to show up on the 
"general" view for the contact and ideally be able to select it as on of the 
Phone Number fields.  Is that possible?  If not how can display a 
user-defined field in the general view?  Thanks in advance.
