    Sorting Tasks Alphabetically (Outlook 2000, Professional)

    I know this is unusual, but I would like to sort my tasks alphabetically in Outlook (I have Office 2000). Any ideas on how to do this? There wasn't anything in the help.

    Assuming your view is one of the lists, you can sort the list on any column by clicking in its header. Clicking the header a second time will reverse the sort order.

    Thanks, Hans. I should've been more specific- I'd like them to sort alphabetically in the "Outlook Today" view. It seems like you can sort by date, priority, etc., but not alphabetically.

    Thanks again for any tips.

    I'm sorry, I don't know how to do that. Hopefully somebody else will...

    The only tip I can offer is to click on the Tasks header, which then takes you through to the Tasks pane. Sort alphabetically and print. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> <img src=/S/flags/NewZealand.gif border=0 alt=NewZealand width=30 height=18>

    Just a quick follow up form my previous post. I found and article in the Knowledge Base re customising Outlook Today, and it stated that you needed to be familiar with C/C++.
    If this is of interest then I can post you the link.
