Journals: Sharing Formatted Views

Posted on 1998-12-07

I am using the Journals in Outlook to create my weekly status reports.  I would like to send these out to my boss and coworkers.  I have successfully been able to share them through the e-mail, but they come up on everyone else's computers using their standard view rather than the one I created and assigned to them.

Is there a way for them to see my journals the way I intended them using my Defined View rather than their Default Defined View?

If not, is there a way to generate a tabular ASCII output rather than the paragraph format that is generated by default?  I like to group my journal entries by category, but the paragraphs don't seem to come up in any particular order.  I also haven't been able to locate the place where I can choose what information to include/exclude from the ASCII formatted text.

Thanks.

I called Microsoft and they said I can't do what I am trying to do as they don't save the Defined View along with the Journal entry.

Since Microsoft changed from concurrent licensing to named licenses, we don't all get access to all of the software; only accountants get Excel.

However, we all do get Word, and I might be able to use your idea to generate a similar structure through Word.  Since Microsoft is noted for putting all of their software in every product, I'm sure there is some trimmed-down version of Excel lurking in Word (along with the Flight Simulator!) that I can convert my journal entries into.

Thanks.
