Installing a new hard drive--and Windows XP and Office 2007--left behind my

custom "Daily Record" Entry Type in Outlook's Journal. I was able to find

some notes about personalizing Journal entries that sound vaguely familiar.

(Create a new Journaling key called Daily Record in regedit) but I'm confused

about what parameters need to be set and how they should be set. I now have

"DescriptID" as REG_DWORD and Large Icon as Type REG_SZ and Data [17] but

"Daily Record" does not appear in my Journal "Entry Type" drop-down list.

What am I doing wrong?

Is this what you are trying to do?

Yes. Precisely. And that's the article I found a copy of and it's what I

might have used to set up a custom entry type before I reinstalled Windows XP

and Outlook 2007 on a new, clean hard drive. Adding the new key is fairly

straightforward, but how to set the Description and Large Icon and their

appropriate values is not so clear. Apparently I didn't do it correctly,

becaue the new Entry Type doesn't appear as an option in the drop-down.
