    More Advanced Advanced Advanced Find?? (OL 2000)

    Hi,
    What do I have to do to access the "more advanced" button on the Advanced tab in the Advanced Find dialogue???
    I can't find anything to make this button available (it's greyed out?)
    Thanks in anticipation.

    I think I figured out how to sorta use it...Go to the Advanced tab. Near the bottom, click on Field (under Define More Criteria) and select what you would like to search for under that. You can define Conditions, then click on Add to List. I didn't try searching for anything, but I'm guessing it'll work...exactly how, I'm not sure. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Hope this helps!

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> if so, they should be very prepared, i think it's been that way in at least 2 versions.

    It's available in OL2002. Ok, so that's no help to you at this instant, but select something on either the Messages or More Choices tab & see if that doesnt open it up.

    have you ever seen the more advanced button enabled? if so, which choices on the other tabs cause it to be enabled?

    Click Tools | Advanced Find, dialog opens.

    In OL 02, the Advanced tab is enabled.

    In OL 00, i would enter something in the subject line... anything.

    I am assuming the dialog looks the same in 02 as 00

    I SEE said the blind carpenter, as he picked up his hammer and saw.

    The button even disappears in the Find Files version of the dialog...

    I just can't wait to see what they use it for - something that took 6 or 7 years to implement!!! ;-)

    I believe it's an email tracking feature that they're going to implement. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Perhaps you recall receiving a chain email stating that for every person you send the email to, Mr. Gates will send you $206.32 (or whatever the number was). When you click the button, you'll be able to see the names of all the people you sent that email to, and every person THEY sent it to, in a hierarchical fashion.

    Well, when More Advanced is ready, your check will be, too! -- maybe that's why it's taking them so long to get the button to work... <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    Now, back to Scuttlebutt where I belong!
