    We recently changed to Outlook 2007 but our new network managers installed it with a very irritating default folder view. Every time I create a new folder, or go into an old one I haven't used since the switch, I want to Customise the View by: a. removing the same six fields b.adding one back in, c. formatting the date d.removing the grouping. I would like to create a macro to do this but because there is no record feature I don't know where to start. I have tried visiting Sue Moshe's site, but there are no sample codes for anything like this.

    There's no need to create a macro to do what you want - under the View menus, View | Arrange By | Current view | Define views, name the customized View you have designed and save it as a named custom View. Then use the same dialog to Apply this view to each new folder for which you want it.

    You also can rapidly switch views using the "Advanced" toolbar, a motley assortment of less useful controls. (It's called Advanced in Outlook 2003, but it might have a different name in Outlook 2007.)

    Thanks, those were both a great help. I created my own defined view and then added editd the Advanced toolbar to contain 'Current View' which means I can switch the view to my own design in two straightforward clicks. I tried adapting the installed view 'Messages' but that wasn't really successful, there are too many complicating factors, so own defined view is definitely the way forward.
