    outlook 2007 calendar search

    OK, a little progress. I can now find what I was looking for - with your " subject:* " etc suggestions. Is there somewhere can I find instructions about using search (and other Outlook features)? Could save me (and you) a lot of time! Outlook can do a lot of amazing things but the complexity...

    outlook 2007 calendar search

    Amnesia! Just saw an earlier post from Jan 2019. It seems that most of the time I am not looking for words/letters that trigger a total listing of all items in calendar just every 10-11 months! Someone with more authority should just tell me to get over it. Stephen

    outlook 2007 calendar search

    My last name is X, doctor's last name is X. Looking for past appointments in the calendar for X yields all entries in calendar including entries that do not contain X in them. I suspect this is because my calendar name contains X? Or maybe not. Is there some search function that can be changed...

    Again an error: Typing "phen," the last letters of my first name renders "no matches for 'phen"

    Outlook 2007 Calendar instant search problem. Windows 7

    I will try again. I try to do a simple search by typing "step" after indexing in the Day/Week/Month view. The results show up with 1798 items and the Current View becomes All Appointments. I do not try to narrow the search or check body. The instant search works as long as I do not enter the...

    Outlook 2007 Calendar instant search problem. Windows 7

    I am not quite sure of your question: Each of the different sections of Outlook has a search dialog box (with the magnifying glass icon) at the top of the window. That is what I understand as the 'instant search.' All sections of the Instant Search work excepting the Calendar. That works EXCEPT...

    Outlook 2007 Calendar instant search problem. Windows 7

    The Calendar Instant Search seems to work for all words/letter combinations except for any letters that start with my first or last name which then renders 200 including a warning that I should "narrow my search." Clicking on the warning yield 1798 items AND indicates that the Current View is...

    Reboot of frozen windows7 results in changed outlook 2007 settings

    Well, my mistake. Just noticed that the top of the application (toolbar space?) said "safe mode". Closed program, re-opened it and seems to be OK, except for the fonts in email and maybe elsewhere.

    Reboot of frozen windows7 results in changed outlook 2007 settings

    Computer refused to come back to life after sleeping. Forced reboot twice to get back to normal(?). There was error message (do not remember exact warning) starting up Outlook. Now font settings have changed in most of parts. Emails do not load all info (graphics) when reading in either mode...

    Outlook 2007: Address Cards allow entering text! Why?

    Thank you! It never ceases to amaze me how complicated and obscure Outlook is. I come from InfoCentral, if you know what that is/was, which was complicated in its own way but ultimately accessible and malleable to ones way of working.

    Outlook 2007: Address Cards allow entering text! Why?

    I have contacts showing up as Address Cards as a default view. I can enter text on any of the cards which then shows up on the contact dialog box. Why is that? Can I configure Outlook to prevent that? When I enter text in this mode it is only by accident. If I want to change something in a...

    stop calendar date reverting to today

    Not persistent. View is Business card. I reset view (and did other poking around) and still reverts to alphabetic order if I go to Calendar or Mail, etc when I come back to Contacts. So, some other gremlin seems to be lurking?

    stop calendar date reverting to today

    Yes, I have it open and I do use it a little - never thought of using it to navigate between dates. Creature of (bad) habit. Will try that. I have the same complaint about contacts reverting to alphabetic order, but I suspect if I ask a similar question about that I will get a similar answer, so...
