    TaskPad in Calendar (XP)

    I want the Taskpad in the calendar to only show the tasks that are due today. I opened the Calendar and went to View>TaskPad View and clicked Today's Tasks but it still shows tasks that are due on other days. I unchecked Include Tasks With No Due Date
    but that did not help either.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    It should have worked, try it again and this time OK out and close and restart Outlook. If it still doesn't take, try this: right click on the Taskpad header next to the Calendar, and then select Customize Current View | Filter and set the Filter to Tasks Due Today.

    Post back if this doesn't help.

    Thanks for the response.

    Restarted and no change.

    When I go to the Filter I do not see an option for that.
    Where do I find that?

    But, maybe the original problem is that I do not understand what it means by Today's Tasks.
    I assumed that meant tasks due today. Could it mean something else?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what Today's Tasks means, my guess is that it means any task with a Start date on or after, and a Due date on or before, today.

    Does the attached graphic help with setting the Filter?

    OK I get it now.
    Actually, thanks to your help by directing me to the Customize Current View, I found another view I like - sort by Due Date.
    Thanks for the help.
