Jay, you are a genius among forum would-be-solution-providers; I'm tired of

people plainly offering would-be solutions and even if they did suggest the

right thing, why not include the how-to. The Printing Assistant (a.k.a.

CPAO) is junk; the only hope for it is editing xml, which is *NOT* for

ordinary people:

<SpanningAllDayArea MaxSize="96"
<AllDayAppointment Height="32"
<Content Orientation="Fill" FontSize="8pt" TextWrapping="Wrap"
<ContentElement Source="Subject" /
<ContentElement Source="CategorySymbols"/
</Content
</AllDayAppointment
</SpanningAllDayArea
I've tried all kinds of values for Height (e.g. auto or *), just using 32

for now (instead of 16), which forces all alldayappointments to have two

lines of space and TextWrapping works (i.e. simply removing the "No" from in

front of "Wrap" did the trick).

The fill color is another issue (i.e. haven't figured out how to get the

category colors as the fill color); so, for now, just including the colored

dot in the content area).

I'm better off just printing the Outlook 2007 calendar in monthly view

without the weekends and I pretty much get what I want (but the long subjects

get truncated, but at least more to preview without the weekends getting in

the way), as the other option is crappy old-school looking macros for Word or

Excel and CPAO, which is *JUNK*.

We don't have time to "do the homework" for everything or everyone. If its

something we've done for ourselves, then we'll have the specific solution,

otherwise we try to point people in the right direction and hope they can

figure it out on their own.

I was able to use the Height="32" change below this line to get "Subject" Events to word wrap nicely!!!. - Sorry dont know the proper terms. Wish they all didn't have to default to 32 pixels high :confused: : [

This leaves less room for other appointments. - I had to shrink the text to compensate. : ]

______

<AllDayAppointment Height="32" Margin="2,1,2,0" Style="SingleAppointment"
<Bar Visibility="Collapsed" Orientation="Left" Width="5" BorderThickness="0,0,1,0"
<ConditionalFormat Condition="BusyStatus eq 'Free'" Visibility="Visible" Style="SingleAppointmentBarFree"/
<ConditionalFormat Condition="BusyStatus eq 'Tentative'" Visibility="Visible" Style="SingleAppointmentBarTentative"/
<ConditionalFormat Condition="BusyStatus eq 'OutOfOffice'" Visibility="Visible" Style="SingleAppointmentBarOOF"/
</Bar
<Content Orientation="Fill" Margin="2,0,2,0" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Separator="116" SeparatorFontFamily="WingDings" FontSize="6pt" TextWrapping="Wrap"
<ContentElement Source="Subject" FontWeight="Bold"/>

Changing the margin settings should help a little too - the margin # are in this order: top, right, bottom, left. Margin="1,0,1,0" would give you a little less padding top and bottom and no padding let and right.
