To the group:

My sincerest apologies if this is not the correct group to post this question.

Outlook 2007

I have a user who needs to copy emails from their Inbox to various

subfolders. They need a method of marking the emails already copied. (They

use flags for other purposes so simply flagging the email is not an option -

unfortunately)

I tried to create a custom yes/no column field expecting a checkbox. Wrong.

Is it possible to create such a checkbox column field? And if not, any

suggestions for marking the emails would be greatly appreciated.

I am fairly literate in Access and Ecel VBA but have limited experience in

Outlook.

My most gracious thanks for any assistance.

Create a custom column how and where? If you just customize a view and add a

column to it the new column has to point to some field or other in each item

to show/have valid data. If the column isn't bound to any Outlook property

in the item it won't display a value or persist a value.

Thank you most kindly.

That makes a lot of sense and certainly explains why the yes/no field wasn't

my solution (and makes me wonder why I didn't recognize that myself).

I was doing just that - cutomize view/new column. (I have one that displays

the age of the email in days - not very hard to pull off.) I now have a much

better understanding of my options.

Again, my sincerest thanks.
