Calendar Printing Tools for Outlook

This is a collection of print tools for the Microsoft Outlook Calendar, Outlook Support and Email Support.

In order to use the Word templates you will need to change macro security in Word's Tools, Macros, Security... to Medium, then close Word and reopen it. Approve the macro dialog when you load the template. In Word 2007, macro settings are in Office icon (former File menu location), Word Options, Trust Center link on left, Trust Center Settings button on bottom.)

Even though the information on templates state they are for older versions of Outlook, these templates will work with all newer versions of Outlook and Word, including 2003 and 2007.

Note that Outlook 2007 suffers from a printing bug where events which extend into multiple weeks do not print properly. Install Outlook 2007 SP1 or use the Calendar Printing Assistant instead.

If you are having problems printing duplex calendars correctly in Outlook 2003, see Outlook 2003 Calendar Duplex Printing Bug for more information.

Find a conference room using Outlook

When you create a meeting request, it is typical and convenient to include the meeting location for the meeting or event. You can use the Address Book to find a conference room.

Note This feature requires you to use a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 account. Most home and personal accounts do not use Microsoft Exchange. For more information about Microsoft Exchange accounts and how to determine which version of Exchange your account connects to, see the links in the See Also section.

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Meeting Request.

Keyboard shortcut To create a new meeting request, press CTRL+SHIFT+Q.

  1. In the Subject box, type a description of the meeting or event.
3. To open the Address Book to see which rooms are available, next to the Location box, click Rooms.

If you don't see the Rooms button, you might have:

    • Opened an appointment instead of a meeting request.
    • Clicked New on the toolbar instead of opening a meeting request on the File menu. By default, when in Calendar, clicking New on the File menu opens an appointment.

In both cases, the Rooms button is not displayed until you add at least one other person. It makes the appointment into a meeting request. To change an appointment to a meeting request, on the Appointment tab, in the Show group, click Scheduling Assistant.

4. Complete the meeting request and send it.
