Hello All,

One of the folks in my office has a recurring problem. When she attempts to

print a calendar from Outlook, her computer freezes.

She is using Outlook 2003 on a computer running Windows XP Pro with SP 2.

The problem occurs with any printer, but does not occur with any other

software, or even when she prints other types of items, such as e-mail

messages, from Outlook.

Do any of y'all have any useful suggestions about how this difficulty might

be corrected, or - failing that - how I might diagnose the problem more

precisely?

I'd be grateful.

JPB

Find and delete outlprnt and see if it works.

See http://www.outlook-tips.net/beginner/filepath.htm if you need help

finding it.

Diane,

My thanks - and my apologies. It turns out I had the wrong information, so

I asked the wrong question. The user in question, doesn't have Outlook 2003,

she has Outlook 2007, which may explain why, when I searched for it, couldn't

find a file anywhere on her computer named "outlprnt."

I will re-post under an appropriate subject heading.

Thank you for your, help, and - again - my apologies for failing to state

the right question.

Sigh.

version doesn't matter - all versions make the file - it's a hidden/system

file and may only exist if you customize a print layout.

See http://www.outlook-tips.net/beginner/filepath.htmfor the location

Diane,

Right you are. This version has one also. I closed Outlook, found the

file, renamed it, restarted Outlook and - at least for the moment - the

printing problem was gone.

So, thank you kindly for your good advice.
