    Outlook (XP 2002)

    After a while, the locations of meetings builds up with numerous multiples, entered or typed differently. Is there a way to edit these to tidy them up ?

    Re: Outlook (XP 2002)

    I'm unsure of your precise problem.

    I assume that locations are typed by users, and there is variation?
    I'd have assumed that the problem went away after meetings had passed <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    They can be editted the long way by double-clicking any meeting and changing them - but I'm still assuming that that isn't your question.

    So far as I know there is no global find-replace as is in Word or Excel.

    The best I could think of is to view your calendar in one of the 'table' views (e.g. active appointments), and also set it to accept edits (View > Current View > Customize Current View >Other > allow in-cell editting).

    With suitable sorting by location column you should be able to do a fairly rapid edit. One of the recent posts talked through how to do a global edit - but in this case, a simple cut-and-paste may be enough.

    Andrew, I think the poster means the drop down of past locations that build in the Location Selector in the Appointment Window, see partial attachment. I myself don't know a way to clean these up, perhaps someone else does.

    Thanks John - I'd never noticed that feature. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    ... and all my tried and true methods that work with other dropdowns don't with this one - but you knew that.

    I'm not still 100% that my guess about the Poster's question is right, but that's how I read it. Then I messed about for a while trying to delete some of mine without success and said "to heck with it". So there may be an answer, if I have the right question, but I sure don't know it!

    I had thought these were stored in the registry, but Find didn't turn up any of mine. Turns out it's encoded. Also turns out you can't edit it, only delete the key so that your list starts fresh. I'd suggest searching for article 300579 on support.microsoft.com to get the details. The key is Current_Usersoftwaremicrosoftoffice10.0outlookpref erenceslocationMRU and it will be recreated when you next create an appointment with a location.
