AH-HA!!!!!! I saw the "Export to a file" and stopped. Shows my genius.
But that leads to another question.
Exported a file. Assume a database with two fields - subject and body. Export feature works but truncates the body. Thus,
Body: We the people of the United States ...
One part of my problem is EXportimg a database from Outlook. Can't find how to do it. To be sure we're talking about the same thing, be patient . . .
In Outlook, in the Folder List (left pane), I have "Personal Folders." Under "Personal Folders" is "Database Items," and under "Database...
I can find how to copy a pst and I can copy/paste notes. I haven't found how to copy/paste or export all entries in just one folder? in the database. Almost 700 entries so I have no interest in copy/paste each entry in the folder.
Email client is Thunderbird or eM.
How do I (can I?) send an Outlook Database to someone NOT running Outlook? I can find how to export/import Notes but not how to Export/Import a database. Does the receiver of the database need a database app to open it?
Compatibility mode was off.
Profile??? That reminds me. Every time I reboot and open Outlook, I get a box asking me to choose a profile. Always choose the same one. Could a different profile solve the problem? Is there a way to select a profile without reboot?
New windows user? Don't know how.
Well, I finally checked the video card driver . . . I think. I updated the driver on everything that looked suspiciously video-like. In every case, I got "Windows could find no newer driver" or something similar. Rebooted the PC. Colors dropdown still empty. Lines between days in week view...
FWIW, the lines between days (not on each side of the current day) are apparently white. I can see color gaps on the horizontal lines (separating hours) where the day separator lines should be. Hope that's clear. Colors on all other apps appear right. I would suspect a...
did that. Still empty. I'm also interested in the lack of separation between days. On the old PC, in Week view, I had a clear gray? line between every day. On the new PC, no lines. There are lines bracketing the CURRENT day, but none between the other days.
Moved Outlook to a new PC. Works very well except for the calendar. Hope I can explain it properly.
On the old PC, when the weekly calendar was displayed, I had two colors - one for work hours with a white background and one for off hours with a gray? background. On the new PC, all 24 hours...
Thanks for all the help. I'll try that and see what happens.

Under "Send/Receive Groups, I see all email is to be sent to Personal Folders>Inbox. How do I change that to a different folder?
Junk Mail - how do I send that to a different folder?
Well, I think I'm making progress. Email still doesn't update but once a day. OTOH, F9 DOES update. This is good. But that leads to a second problem. My Inbox (that's Inbox in the left column) now shows 15 unread messages but the list of messages on the right pane just shows 11. Where are...
Searched here but didn't find the answer.
For years Outlook has updated my email periodically. Don't know if it was every 30 minutes or every hour, but it updated. F9 would give me a manual update. In the last couple of months, updates are apparently done once a day at night. F9...
