Print preview locks up outlook

  • 1. Outlook 2003 two page monthly printing
    Forgive me if this is redundant, but I've been searching all over the net for a way to print a two-page one month view from Outlook 2003 that does not compress the weekends or cut a day out of the week (I need to print all 7 days for a church calendar). Help! (This works with my Franklin-Covey plug-in, but my secretary, who keeps the church calendar, does not have or need this plug-in.)
  • 2. Outlook recurrence pattern not available in Windows Mobile?
    I have several recurring appointments that occur on the first Sunday of the month, for example. If I set up a recurring appointment in Outlook this way, then when it synchronizes to my Windows Mobile 5 smartphone (Pantech PN820) then the recurrence instead says something like "Day 2 of every month." Well obviously, day 2 is not always a Sunday, so it ends up being wrong after the first month. My only options are: Day 2 of every month Every March 2 Once Every Sunday What gives? Is there a workaround to actually set up a recurrence like this, other than adding the appointments individually?
  • 3. Can't see Suggested Times Pane
    Hi I have Outlook 2007 clients with an Exchange 2003 SP2 mail server. I am trying to schedule a meeting, but can't see the Suggested Times Pane. Does it need turning on somewhere? TJ
  • 4. Meeting Invitations Appear as Regular e-mail Messages
    I am getting meeting invites being sent to me from a client. They use Outlook through MS Exchange. When I receive them in Outlook they appear as regular text e-mails. When I receive them in another contact manager (Goldmine) they appear as meeting invitations and I get the options to accept, reject, etc. Anyone with any clues as to why Outlook to Outlook does not work?

  • 5. Label colors don't show
    Hi In Outlook 2003 my label colors don't show in any views, even though views have been reset. However, if I copy the calendar to another folder they do show. This suggests it is due to some property of my Personal folders. Sorry to ask, but my IT support doesn't support Outlook, only Outlook Express! Cheers

Using Office 2007.  When trying to print preview in calendar,  outlook locks 
up and I can't exit.  Same if try just to print.  All works fine with other 
modules.  Ran repair program from CD with no change.  Any ideas?

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.
