Journal items cannot be deleted

Hello,
I'm trying to manually erase my items in the Outlook '97 journal. This works fine OK for all items except for the Itemtypes "Microsoft Word". If I try to delete the 7908 items that are in there I get the message: "Some items could not be deleted they were either moved or already deleted, or access is denied". And no item is deleted.

I already checked all open files and closed all programs and other workstations but it doesn't work.

Anyone had this before?

Tanks in Advance,
Jiri

Does autoarchive work on those items you're having trouble deleting?  You might want to try it:

>>Tools>>Options>>Journal Options>>Autoarchive Journal Entries

You can then set options for how long you want items to stay in the journal.

I suspect some of the items you're trying to delete are long gone and outlook is having trouble resolving that.

I seem to remember having problems deleting journal entries and the problem seemed to be that I was trying delete too many at a time and had to go through selecting about 1 or 2 thousand at a time.

Tedious and a pain in the butt, but I got there in the end
