I have a network client who has 20 users, all either WinXP or 2K clients with an Exchange server. When they follow the path in Outlook 2000, "File>Open>Other User's Files...," the drop down menu displays only 10 of their 20 shared calendars. How can I configure Windows/Outlook to show all 20 calendars?  *Is it a registry tweak? A Windows setting? Where can I find the peramiters that govern how many Shared Calendars that are displayed when they open this menu?

I need Outlook 2000 to show at least 20 Shared Calendars in that window.

This is a important and demanding client and the task of satisfying them has fallen on my head. A little help, please. Anybody...

Haven't been able to locate a solution.  Here's a workaround suggestion though:

Why not add a subgroup to their outlook bar called "SharedCalendars" and put shortcut to each of the 20 calendars using say a First Initial.Lat Name Format for easy ID?  I would say that solution would be alot easier for the users than file > open > other user's > scroll.

And btw, if its important that it open in its own window, you can cause the shortcut to do that automatically.

Dug a bit futher and thought this may help solve the issue:

Backup your registry first and take a look at this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\yourversionnumber\Common\Open Find\Microsoft Outlook\Settings\File Open\File Name MRU

The value in it is (10).  Try making it (20)

That key or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\yourversionnumber\Common\Open Find\Microsoft Outlook\Settings\Open Personal Folders\File Name MRU

Thanks...

I'll try it out on my machine today. I don't usually use the service on our network (shared calendars, that is) and we don't have over ten users on our LAN but I'll see what it does. I have an appointment with that client next week, so I'll let you how it goes.

Thanks for digging.

I am trying to do this also but the reg hacks listed didn't work for me.  Anyone else have something to try?

Thanks!
