    Outlook 365 - How to create / copy a new contact from an existing one?

    Ahum....:oops::oops: Geee... I feel so stupid. Haven't asked anything, right? Didn't think such a simple thing (ctrl-c/v) would work, so I didn't give it a try. Tried to figure this out using anything in the toolbar, which is looking somewhat different from yours. (the only common word is...

    Outlook 365 - How to create / copy a new contact from an existing one?

    I would like to create a new contact from an existing one and make minor changes. Most remains the same, but a different mobile phone number and a different 'answerback'. It is meant to display a name (rather than a mobile phonenumber) when a notification thru SMS is being sent from that company...

    Calendar - Location: what happens when using my own way of entering locations

    Outlook > Calendar > Location: when entering a city there, it often offers a location (city) in a wrong format. No doubt the locations are retrieved from some sort of location tables within Office, but it regularly happens they have the wrong format. For example: CITY (just city only, no...

    Same email address, same person, names in so many ways

    Thanks a lot for the tip! Yes, I need to perform a search on the email address. That works fine. Also thanks for your tip as "to keep replies in the same folder with the original" i.e. tag the "When replying to a message that is not in the Inbox, save the reply in the same folder"-option under...

    Holidays in two languages

    Reverting on 1+3 As for 2: View Settings > Conditional Formatting > Add, let's say Holidays, add a colour to it, then Condition, from here it gets vague. I believe there is no such thing as to select some kind of 'general' category for public holidays. It seems one has to select each holiday...

    Holidays in two languages

    Office 365, Outlook Exchange, language pack installed (Dutch/English), File > Options > Calendar > Dutch selected. Three questions: 1) is there a way to have only 1 holiday entry displayed, depending on the language selected, either Dutch or English? (probably not, but just asking) 2) is there...

    Same email address, same person, names in so many ways

    Thanks for the above. Up front: right now, I merely checked 1 email address. This is because I wanted to check whether I had sent a specific attachment to that person on an earlier date. I then noticed the various ways the person was displayed in the "To" column, making it a somewhat difficult...

    Same email address, same person, names in so many ways

    I wonder whether there is solution of it: the same email address but the name is displayed in 7 ways... 1. first name, last name, no quotes, no email address 2. first name between quotes, no email address, like 'John' 3. first name and last name followed by email address between brackets, like...

    Tasks - how to display "snoozed" tasks and snooze-times?

    Hi Diane, Thank you so much. Indeed, the macro runs nice. One would expect a field to be available given the big number of fields available. Anyway, many thanks again! Best regards

    Tasks - how to display "snoozed" tasks and snooze-times?

    I've a number of 'repeating' tasks, like: record or do this or that. When done I set a new reminder date. Sometimes I snooze such tasks, i.e. I might postpone it a day, or one or two weeks. Have looked thru the available fields, but I believe there is no such thing as 'Snooze' or 'Postpone'...

    Newbie question: how to sync two Outlook -Exchange and IMAP- calendars?

    Am not sure ... in the 1st screenshot, the 3rd Outlook in that list is the 2nd one on Exchange basis. Right now the default account is tagged only, of course, but what happens with the calendar in the 1st one if I tag the 2nd one ?

    Newbie question: how to sync two Outlook -Exchange and IMAP- calendars?

    Many thanks! The 'holiday' thing is solved, again thanks. As for Calendars: I have a 365 subscription and within that a second Outlook account linked. I am deeply... sorry, but I was confused myself and provided wrong information, sorry again, ahum... :oops: This is the situation, share...

    Newbie question: how to sync two Outlook -Exchange and IMAP- calendars?

    Source is my Outlook 365 calendar (Exchange). Within Outlook there is a 2nd Outlook account (IMAP) and I want the contacts and calendar copied/synced from the 1st one. I am not entirely sure how to proceed. Don't want to mess things up. "My Calendars" looks like this. Ignore all the entries...

    Comma Separated Values.ADR and A file error has occurred in the translator

    @Theo - what Office version do you use? 365? I assume you are importing from an Excel .csv file ? In my case, when using Excel "File, Save As ... " (CSV UTF-8) or when using "File Export to .." CSV No matter what I tried: I always got semi colon separators. Even though the list separator is...

    Outlook on Android: after sharing / sending a news article, draft remains open. Why?

    It is just a minor thing, I know, but I am curious to know as to why, after sharing (i.e. sending) a link of news article, a draft of that same mail still remains open. Maybe the background is that it can be shared again, with someone else? Now, I need to separately close the mail item. Upon...

    Comma Separated Values.ADR and A file error has occurred in the translator

    Tried to import contacts .csv file. Usually this goes well. Have done this quite a few times before. This time I got errors... Either: "A file error has occurred in the translator while trying to establish a field map. Unexpected error (998) occurred." or "A file error has occurred in the...

    Outlook - hidden contacts?

    Vainly searched for it: is it possible to 'hide' contacts from the active contact list? Background: It may be that contacts should be deleted, but there is quite some info in the Notes-fields that should not be deleted. That should show up when searching on specific details, i.e. details are...

    Advanced search - can I use booleans

    Ahum... Forget it... today it worked. Really puzzled as to why it didn't work yesterday: I used the very same method/search criteria. Even after first deleting the existing search folder(s). BTW I tried with: just 'domain', 'domain.com' and with '@domain', also I tried with just one entry...
