Displaying only the task complete on this day

I am using Outlook97.

When viewing my calendar in day/week/month view, I would like the 'tasks' to display the tasks complete on the day that I am viewing.
(Not the in Day/Week/Month view, the tasklist displays on the same page).

ie If I click on Tuesday of last week, then the tasklist should show only tasks that were complete on tuesday of last week.

Is this possible, if so how?

Thanks.

This would be impossible to accomplish without VBA programming.  You are talking about the day selected in the Calendar displaying only the Tasks that were completed for that day?  This is definitely not a feature built into OL97.
You may be able to come closer to it with OL2003 but you will still need third-party apps or a VBA macro to accomplish this.

Hi fowler,
With all due respect to slink, I believe in OL97 you have the ability to customize and filter the view. While looking at the tasks, click on view, customize current view in the menu. Are there choices to select the sort, fields  and filters here?

Maybe I am reading the question wrong.  It sounds like there is a desire to click on a calendar day and display the TASKS completed on that day.  Does OL97 or any version have a built-in method for crossing functions in this way?
Maybe the desire is to display only completed calendar items.  That should be no problem with a filter applied.

Thanks guys,

Yes, I have looked at the filter options, in the task menu (remember that the calendar displays both the daily calendar, and the tasklist by default). I am not able to filter the tasks displayed to display only those completed on the date displayed.

I can make the tasks filiter to display on those completed on the 'current' day (as in today's date), but not based on anything displayed in the calendar.

Well Fowler, Maybe time to look into other programs such as Microsoft Project or Planview to help with the task in question (sorry for the pun)
