  • 1. can't add new appointments on my desktop
    I am at an impasse with outlook. For some reason my outlook 2003 will no longer allow me to add new appointments (nor contacts to my address book) or edit existing data. The "new" button is no longer highlighted so I can't click it and when I right click the "add" option is also not available for me to use. Addtionally, outlook will not allow me to back-up my existing data. any ideas as why this is happening? I am wondering if this is happening because I never bothered to register my outlook or if there is something else afoot. Also, I am concerned that any new data I added on my phone will be lost when I sync it to the desktop. help - any thoughts? I am not getting any error messages and I have tried to repair and reboot but to no avail.
  • 2. How do I get gridlines back to black in Outlook calendar?
    I highlighted the first row of numbers on one Micorsoft Office Outlook calendar and accidentally hit the backspace button. All the gridlines throughout all of my Microsoft Office Outlook calendars now have a white line (no gridline) next to every single number. Undo wasn't available. The remainder of the gridlines are there in black. I have rebooted, reinstalled Office and updated Office 2003. I can't get that part of the gridline to change back to black. Easy mistake to easy fix found.
  • 3. make appointments in a shared calendar you have subscribed to
    I published my calendar in the internet. Initially my wife could see it and on attempting to make an appointment in it an email request was sent to me which I could accept or decline. Perfect. After some fiddling now if my wife tries to make an appointment in my published calendar she gets the message "you cannot make changes to this read-only folder" Araggh! I have tried unpublishing and republishing the calendar but to no avail
  • 4. lost my calendar
    My calendar is not showing as a calendar, it is only showing as what looks like a spreadsheet, appointments only. How can I set it back to Calendar Thanks Steve

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.
