    Outlook Calendar (2002)

    When in Outlook Calendar, would like a keyboard shortcut for "Today's Date" such as Control and t or Alt and T. Currently, there is a button on the second toolbar labeled "Today" with the o underlined and I have to press the Alt and o keys twice to access that button but it will not take me to the current day.

    Thought about setting up a macro as I have done in the past in Word and Excel, however, Outlook Calendar asks that I set up the macro using visual basic language, which I am not familiar with.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Thanks!!

    I don't have access to 2002 right now, what does Ctrl-G do in 2002? FWIW there doesn't seem to be a "Goto Today" keystroke in 2003.

    Outlook is very limited in the ways you can assign shortcut keys. Your best "quick and dirty" workaround is to find a letter that isn't used anywhere else (like X) and customize the existing button so that X, rather than O, is the accelerator key. To do that, right-click to the right of the toolbar area and choose Customize..., then right-click the button and add the X to the caption and move the & from before the O to before the X. Then close the Customize dialog. Does it work?

    Hi there!

    Thank you for your response. The Control and G takes you to a requested date and not necessarily "today's date". Can you tell me what "FWIW " means?

    Also, another person sent me a fix which is the following. I changed the access letter to the button from Alt and O to Alt and X and it works!!

    Thanks again!!

    FWIW = For What It's Worth, AFAIK (As Far As I Know)

    I think you'll be happier with Jefferson's Alt-X fix, but FWIW, when you enter Ctrl-G, you can type a date or the word "today" in the date box to go to the target day.

    Hans answered your second question. We use some chat-room*/bulletin board abbreviations in the Lounge, a few more are:

    HTH - hope this helps
    YMMV - your mileage may vary
    IM<H>O - in my <humble> opinion

    * but please don't use chat room spelling contractions, those are annoying 2 us, u kno? And we prefer to use the Lounge smilies rather than the chat abbreviations such as ROFL, when available.

    And, finally, ... welcome to the Lounge! <img src=/S/fanfare.gif border=0 alt=fanfare width=31 height=23>

    Yes, I really like the other fix because now I have the Alt and T keyboard shortcut I wanted all along!

    Again, thanks for all your help and welcome!!
