  • 1. Unalphabetizing listing of All Day Events
    My boss is having me enter several events as "All Day Event"(s) on certain calendar days. However, Outlook listing these events in alphabetical order on that day. Is there any way to stop it from doing this? We want to list them in a specific order.
  • 2. Set reminder for 1st occurrence in calendar only?
    Have Outlook 2007, running on Windows XP, no relevant add-ins. In previous versions of Outlook, I could set a recurring appointment and then go back and edit the first occurrence to set a reminder to fire. I did this because I teach classes that usually run 5 days and I only want a reminder that the class is coming up (not a reminder for each class day). Also, reminders couldn't be scheduled to fire prior to the preceding occurrence in the calendar (recurring item @ same time each day = reminder must fire after end of previous days' occurrence). In Outlook 2007, if I set a recurring appt. and then go edit the first occurrence, reminder box is grayed out and can't be set. It appears that a reminder can only be set on the series, not individual occurrences. This means that for a daily appointment, reminders can't be set 1 week in advance because Outlook says you can't set a reminder before the previous occurrence. Any workarounds? Is my interpretation of the Outlook 2007 functionality correct? Thanks! John B
  • 3. Appointment recurrance
    I have a user that when she schedules something in your calendar, she receives a recurrance for the same entry even if she didn't schedule it to be a recurring event. Even after hitting the remove recurrance button, the same appt. is showing on the same day, every week. Any way to prevent this from happening or any idea as to why this is happening. I was able to schedule something in my calendar with no problem..Thanks in advance

Is this possible. At the moment it tells me that it is read-only. thanks K

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.
