======================================================================
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:
 
 - Microsoft Outlook 98
 - Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SYMPTOMS
========
 
Shortly after startup, Microsoft Outlook 98 may fail with a generic Dr.
Watson error in Outlook.exe.
 
CAUSE
=====
 
There is a problem in either the Offitems.log file or the Outitems.log
file.
 
RESOLUTION
==========
 
Rename and rebuild the problem file.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
Outlook journalizes information about your use of various files in two log
files. Offitems.log contains information on Microsoft Office program files
such as Word and Excel. Outitems.log contains information on Outlook items
like Mail and Tasks. These log files are normally stored in the c:\Windows
or c:\Winnt folder.
 
To Determine the Problem File
-----------------------------
 
1. Quit Outlook and rename the Offitems.log file.
 
2. Restart Outlook and wait at least 30 seconds for the error to appear.
   If the error does not appear, the problem has been isolated.
 
3. If the error reappears, quit Outlook and rename the Outitems.log file.
 
4. Restart Outlook and wait at least 30 seconds for the error to appear.
 
NOTE: Renaming these two files will result in the loss of the journal
history contained in them. If you isolate the problem to only one of the
files, you can rename the good file back to recover its history data.
 
To Customize the Journal Feature
--------------------------------
 
1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
 
2. On the Preferences tab, click Journal Options.
 
3. In Journal Options, click to select the Outlook items
   and Office files you wish to track for the selected Contacts.
