    Tasks not appearing! (Outlook 2000 SP3 (9.0.6627)

    I appear to have a problem with the Tasks function within my Outlook (running on a Windows XP (v2002 SP2). Outlook version is also "Internet Mail Only - Security Update) ".

    For some reason, after Outlook has been open for about an hour or so (sometimes longer) my Tasks stop appearing. I am also unable to amend any Tasks that have already been displayed, as even if I change the Reminder date and time, the Task does not disappear.

    I have looked the problem up on the Microsoft Help & Support site, and found the following article......

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;195964

    Although running the "outlook /cleanreminders" command as suggested by the article solves the problem temporarily, after about another hour or so, the same problems with the Tasks occur again.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is it actually a Windows or Windows Security issue? My Office 2000 Updates are all UTD.

    Would be extremely grateful for any assistance/guidance.

    A couple of things you could try:

    Run scanpst.exe (AKA the inbox Repair Tool) on your PST(s).

    Examine your views to see if you have a filter or View set that doesn't include all Tasks.

    This isn't likely to be a Windows Security issue.

    Thank you....

    How do you run the Inbox Repair Tool on my PST?

    Also, how do you check to see if a view is affecting your Tasks?

    See <!post=this post on scanpst.exe,508482>this post on scanpst.exe<!/post>; once the process dialog opens, browse to your PST(s) and start the process. It may take some time, depending on the PST file size. If you are not sure where your PST is, Search for '*.PST' through Windows Explorer making sure to set "Search Hidden Files and Folders" on.

    I don't have access to Outlook 2000 and the dialogs have changed somewhat, but you should be able to find a menu like View | Current View | Define Views; explore all the options under the dialog see if there are any filters or grouping set; if so turn them off, and Apply the View.
