OL2K Not AutoRecording Journal Entries

In OL 97 the recording of document usage (duration of work performed in Word, Excel, etc.) was seamless and automatic.  I've just upgraded to OL2K (but not the rest of Office 2K) and I have attempted unsuccessfully to get this app to track what I'm working on.  Is there some fix other than the obvious help menu options? or does OL2K not track Office 97 document usage?  Do I need to install the remaining Office 2K products/

As far as I've heard, Outlook 2000 does not journal Office 97 apps.

Choose Tools > Options

On the Preferences TAB (Default) there is click the Journal Options button.

This should bring you up a Window with three checkbox areas: Automatically Record These Items, For These Contacts, and Also Record Files From.

The Also Record Files From checkbox area should list your Office products.

Sounds like a killer "Uncle Bill" planned obsolescence scheme ala Sony.

Need to upgrade the entire package due to non-backward compatibility, Huh?

As far as I've seen from the newsgroup support I do... you need the whole suite (Office 2000) for the journalling to work.

According to Mico$oft you have not given them enought money to use Outlook $2K.  Look at this article from them :

The award goes to "celtics".  Post your comment as an answer and receive your points.

Thanks for the MS doc I pulled it down and, of course, it told me what I wanted to know...  To bad OL2K is so cool.  Guess I'll have to sink the coin into the rest of the O2K package so I can track my billable time.

Again, thanks for the assistance.

Have a great Holiday!
