Print preview locks up outlook

  • 1. Converting multiple appointments to recurring one
    I would like to copy all my meetings to a new machine. I exported all the meetings to Excel, and imported it to the new machine. All occurring meetings now appear as multiple one-time meetings. I do not have access to the old machine, so I can not redo the export (or copy the PST or similar solutions). Is there some script/tool that would go over the meetings, detect identical meetings, and create recurring ones from them? I can write one, but as as it seems a common issue I hope someone has done it already Thanks
  • 2. Appointments sent by email
    I use Outlook 2003 at the office and at home. When I send an appointment from my work based computer to my home computer via email, the email opens with text instead of being an appointment that can be accepted. The text is the routing information, html codes for the body text, codes that would normally instruct the calendar to update the new appointment.
  • 3. Posting to Multiple Calendars
    Hello All, A user want to know if they can do the following: Is it possible to post to one calendar and have that post automatically propogate to other designated calendars, both one's own calendar and other users? So if Jane Doe creates an appointment on her calendar that appointment also appears on John Smith's, without John Smith having to Accept the appointment. Let me know if you have other questions for clarification. Thanks,
  • 4. .vcs file inline attachment
    I am generating a .vcs file from a web application. The user downloads it, and can import it into his outlook. In the specification of vCalendar, there is a property called ATTACH, that allows to embed a binary file (encoded in base64) inside the .vcs file. I would like to know if Outlook supports this ATTACH property, because I haven't been able to get it to work, and I can not figure out if this is because the .vcs file is not correctly formatted or Outlook does not support this property. The generated .vcs, without the inline attachment is successfully imported into outlook. Thanks, Juan Pablo
  • 5. Can not create new calendar entry
    I am having an issue with a user unable to create new calendar entries in MS Outlook. If she clicks on New - Appointment, or double clicks on a time slot in the calendar, notning happens. Here's what I've tried so far: Launched Outlook with /cleanprofile, /cleanreminder and /clenafreebusy switches to no avail. Recreted the users Outlook profile to no avail. User is on MS Outlook 2003, Windows XP and her milbox is on a 2003 Exchange Server. I got the user to access her mailbox through Outlook web access and she has no issues updating here calendar here. So it looks like an issue with either Outlook on her system on her windows profile. Has anyone seen this issue before and knows a quick fix. The reason I ask is that the user is in a satellite office and reinstalling Outlook or creating a new Windows profile, which would be my next steps would be a bit tricky for me to do. Any feedback on this is much appreicated. Thanks in advance, Will.

find and delete outlprnt (see 
it)  - if that doesn't help, try the calendar printing assistant.  it's 
linked at  http://www.**--****.com/ 
templates are worth trying too.

Thanks Diane, you made the fix easy.  I had to work a little to get the 
calendar set back up to print correctly for a daytimer senior pocket format, 
but it works.

I don't know if you'll run into this problem again, but you might want to 
make a copy of the outlprnt file in case you have problems in the future - 
restoring it could save you some time.

2.Outlook 2010 Beta Lock ups

Just installed Office Professional 2010.  Outlook keeps locking up.  I can 
get it to start, although slow but once I click on a folder is just churns 
away and nothing happens.  I have to then shut it down and restart it.  I 
have a number of pst files.  I have tried removing them and starting with out 
them but that did not solve the problem.  It locks even when clicking on 
tasks.  Not sure how to resolve it.

3.Hanging and lock ups

Running Office 2003 sp2 and having problems with Outlook 2003
Locks up randomly when I write, receive, read, delete, or sent e-mails.  
Like this morning. I had 3 lock-ups, one that required a re-boot of the 
machine, in 17 minutes.  But now I have been working for 20 minutes without 
problems.  Sometimes, I will minimize it, and forget about it, and in an hour 
I will switch to it, and it will have crashed, and I didn even realize.
