We are trying to use Outlook 97  "contacts" for our company contact manager.  We need to keep track of notes ("Journals") for each contact, and at a previous posting in this forum I have discovered that we can't use journal entries because they do not share across the network.

Surely the Experts will ahve a work-around to cope with this problem. The functionality is so obvious that someone must have made a solution - why not Microsoft?

you can work around that with the export/import function of the personal folders. so you can track each journal-entrie with the contact itself.

What I want is to be able to view a journal under a contact, and be shure that not only my own, but also others entries in this journal is shown.

If I need to export/import every time to be shure all is there, it's no good. It has to be done automatically.

But it seems like the answers are getting closer, but are we there?

Were you using Exchange server.  I have this problem, and I am using a Win98 only network.

Yes we are using Exchange.

As it seems there is no solution to this problem we are thinking about using another type of software - Super Office!!
