Exporting Journal entries to Excel

Postby TGlzYSBXaGl0ZQ » Sat, 08 Nov 2008 13:25:01 GMT

I am trying to figure out if there is a character limit in the journal entry. 
I have just started using Journal entries for my contacts - I need to be able 
to export them to Excel to present as a report, but when I do - the Notes 
section (the meat of the Journal) is cut off - I don't see consistency in 
where my notes are cut off - I've tried expanding the cell in Excel, 
selecting Wrap text, etc and it appears that it's not grabbing my entire Note 
from the Outlook Journal. Any ideas?

I think it exports up to 255 characters.

3.Journal Entries (viewing journal entries)

Hi all,

I use Journal Entries in Outlook all the time, but I am having issues 
viewing these Entries in Outlook 2007.

I create a Journal Entry against a Contact and Close & Save it.  When I 
choose to view all my Entries (I open Contact, click on the Activities tab, 
which defaults to "Show All Items".  For whatever reason, it does not Display 
my Journal Entries.

I know that the Entries are there as I either create a dumby entry and all 
of a sudden it shows all of my Entries, or sometimes I close Outlook and 
re-open it, and once again, it shows all of my Entries.

I then close a Contact and when I clilck the Activities tab again, no 
Entries are Displayed.

Can anyone assist me with this prob?


4.Duplication in journal entries / journal entries not tracked

Hi all,
I use Outlook 2003 as a client for Exchange Server and the my problem
* I double click the entry from the journal
* A new window opens with the link to the e-mail message
* I double click in this link in order to open the e-mail
* I click in Mail in the Navigation Pane
* I click again in Journal in the Navigation Pane and the entry is
I can repeat this procedure up to 6 times and the entry will repeat
itself in journal up to 6 times.

Another question:
Why some contacts keep their incoming messages tracked automatically in
Journal and others don't?
I've checked everything (Journal Options, e-mail addressess...) and
it's OK.
The curious thing about is that for those that Journal doesn't track
automatically their incoming messages, it tracks automatically the ones
that I send to them!.
Any help for these problems would be very appreciated
