  • 1. Upload of 'calendar' fails
    I am not working through an Exchange server - just my Outlook 2007 on my PC. I am signed into Office Online properly but have never yet been able to publish my calendar. It acts as if it is starting but then pops up two or three windows too fast for me to read, and finishes with the error message "The upload of "Calendar" failed. The next upload attempt occurs with the next send/receive." I have tried going into Account Settings and walking through the Change Account on my published calendar, which removes it, but then the problem happens again. I tried creating a new, blank calendar and got the same issue. When I look at Office Online, there are calendars there but they have a size of 0 - in other words the calendar is created but not uploaded. I have deleted them from Office Online, but that does not help either. I would appreciate any insights. Thanks!
  • 2. how do I reduce the font size of calendar appoints to fit print
    when I print out a month of calendar some of the appointment details are cut off - is there a way of either reducing the font size or getting all the detail printed?
  • 3. Duplicates and other errors using Outlook distro lists in meeting
    Running Outlook 2003 on XP. Lately, I've noticed that when I use a distro list I've created in my Outlook contacts, some of the attendees show up in the meeting request more than once (they are only in the distro once). Also, have had it happen that the entire distro list when invited as required attendees will also appear as optional. What could be causing this?
  • 4. privacy in old items.
    Hi to evereyone My problem is that we are using the outlook calendar months ago for personal and for work and now we have to share our calendars within work-teams. And if we share the calendar we share everything in the old items, work and personal. The question is if there is any possibility to choose what old items to share, we only want to let see the work items and hide the personal ones. Without marking all old items as private. Or if it is possible to share the calendar by categories. Thanks to every one!!!
  • 5. How can I find entries in a previous year's calendar?
    My calendar only shows 2008/9.

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.
