  • 1. background color in outlook calendar
    i want to change the background color in my outlook calendar. is there any way or can i download something to do that? thanks,
  • 2. Non work hours
    I have searched around help a bit and haven?t been able to find an answer to this. I thought someone down there might know. I have my working hours on my calendar set from 7:30 to 3:30. I thought this would make me look ? busy? to anyone trying to schedule me for a meeting before 7:30. I imagined I would be ?blocked out? just as if I had a meeting. But it doesn?t? seem to. I know I could probably just create a recurring appointment with busy time starting at 3:30 every afternoon and ending at 7:30 a.m. the next day. But it seems like there should be an easier (more automatic ? it is pretty easy) way. Any thoughts?
  • 3. calendaring & contacts
    I am unable to set an appointment. It takes the appointment info in the designated box and then when I click to exit the appointment the appointment information disappears, but if I go to find and enter the information it is there but just not visible on the calendar. This is also happening when I create new contacts. The highlighted box with the contacts name in bold and in alphabetic order disappears and the contacts ends up before the a's and without a contact name, it's just a gray blank box but if I double-click the info appears but when I close the contact it's gray again with no name in the area. Thanks!
  • 4. Import CSV File into Calendar
    I am attemping to import a csv file into my personal folder calendar using Outlook XP. I've gone through the wizard mapped all fields needed. The wizard acts as if it has imported the data but the data does not appear on my calendar. Every peice of evidence I have seen on the web implies this should work. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? Please let me know if I have not included enough information.
  • 5. unread items in the calender folder
    Has anyone seen unread items in the calender folder? my user has outlook 2000 and I have already checked to see if it is profile based and its not? Any have any idea's, I would be greatful. Thanks, Steve Homick

up and I can't exit.  Same if try just to print.  All works fine with other

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.
