    Outlook Views (OL2003)

    I need a good primer on making my folder views the same without having to edit each one. I've gone through the customize this folder option as well as the define views, apply.

    Curses, that is my own question which was related to OWA and our IP security group blocks access to the site so I can't see the thread in question. I'll fire up a modem connection to the internet later to see the details or wait until I get home to follow up.

    Thanks and happy, peaceful holidays!!

    Re: Outlook Views (OL2003)

    Unfortunately the only part of those instructions that I could get to work was starting Outlook with the cleanviews commandline option..... this did indeed strip the customized views but I could not get the apply this view to the next folder.... I am back to customizing each folder in turn which is a pain.

    Re: Outlook Views (OL2003)

    Regarding customizing each folder, it seems quickest to define a new view (e.g., MyColumnHeaders) in one folder, and then use the drop-down in the Advanced toolbar to apply that view to each other folder. There might be a way to apply it to several at once, using VBA, but I'm not highly confident based on past experiments with Views and VBA...
