    Word 2000 Feature Gone (Word 2002)

    In Word 2000 there was an icon on the reviewing menue that would allow you to create a task in Outlook 2000 with your open word document as an attachment. I found this a handy feature for following up on document that I had not finished editing and wanted to be reminded later to do so. I cannot find this ability anywhere in Word 2002. Does anyone know if Microsoft dropped this?

    Thanks.

    Ron Searl.

    Ron,

    Didn't you hear? That functionality was deemed too useful for
    the average intelligent user, so the the toolbar was dumbed
    down to be more useful to the less-than average user with at
    least a 6th grade education but not exceeding a 7th grade
    education. You must be at least a high school grad...


    Well, you'll just have to add that button back to the toolbar:

    You can use that new drop-down thing (that's supposed to
    make it easier to add buttons to toolbars, but I have a college
    degree and find it just about useless) OR you can right click
    on the toolbar>Customize>Commands tab>All Commands.
    Scroll down to CreateTask. Drag and drop the icon on
    to the toolbar.

    No I guess I did not get the memo from Bill on that . <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> But thank you for the location to find the button. I had got through the command list twice but did not realize it started with "create". Maybe the college education thing is overrated. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Again thanks.
