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.

Available in Basic, Professional, and Enterprise versions. Supports Outlook 2000-2007 Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000.

This morning I have opened my MS Outlook. And I was very upset,because something must have happened my emails. But fortunately I used the Internet and perceived there the interesting program - viewer outlook pst. I tried to use it and the utility determined my trouble quite easy and completely free as I kept in mind. It restored my emails and helped me friends too.

Thanks for the list!

For custom calendar printing the Calendar Printing Assistant works nicely. Except that i cant change colors & add pictures. The solution i went with is to Convert Outlook Calendar to Word
. Enjoy!
