    Updating Outlook Tasks (2002)

    Using Outlook 2000 SR-1 (9.0.0.3821)
    Project Workgroup 2002
    Windows 2000 SR-2

    Problem: When receiving a message from Project to update Outlook tasks, unable to open the message. Error message in Outlook as follows:

    Microsoft Project - Title of Error Message
    An error occurred during initialization
    The attachment contained in the message you are trying to open could not be retrieved successfully.

    One bypass we know of is to only open the attachment, this allows you to view the task and put it into Outlook tasks. However, the Date and From fields are blank and only the To field is filled in which does not allow you to respond.

    Can anyone provide a permenant fix?

    Re: Updating Outlook Tasks (2002)

    Sorry, I cant help with this as I am not using 2002. I tried looking in the MS Knowledgebase but did not find anything.

    Anyone else want to give this a try?

    Do you get an error number with this?
    Regards,

    Thanks for your reply.

    No error number provided, just an error box with the title 'Microsoft Project'.

    I've also tried looking at the Knowledge Base, the only article I could find close to my problem was setting up the workgroup to send Project tasks to Outlook tasks.

    I have followed Microsoft's instructions step-by-step, I have also reinstalled Outlook and Project Workgroup. I am still not having any success.

    Thanks.

    Any luck with your issue. We linked a thread over on the Outlook board to see if any Outlook experts can help.
