I have an exchage server 2003 and outlook 2003.  I set up public calendar folder with tasks.  I can't print the tasks with the calendar it gives me the message "The taskpad cannot be printed because there is not an associated Tasks Folder or you may not have permission to view it."  Everyone has owner permission and I can print each individually but not together.  Anyone know how to fix this???

You don't have a taskpad associated with a public folder calendar, so you will need to go to PAGE SETUP->DAILY STYLE->uncheck TaskPad box.

This functionality works with the default calendar and task folder in your default deliver point (mailbox or PST file) in outlook, not on a public folder.

But, I want to print the public calender with the public tasks.  Your saying I can't do that?

Well, I'm saying you can't do it the way you are trying to do it, on a public folder there is no association between the task and calendar folder allowing it to perform this request.  This method only works with priv folders or pst files.

However, here is an alternative which I think gives you the results you are looking for:

Thanks travel, that is exactly what I am looking for.  How do I set that up, the home page that is?  Do you have instructions on how to do that?  I don't have to create a website, do I?  Can I just have it on a network drive on the server?

You save the HTML code that is linked to at http://www.poremsky.com/p/calendar.htm and save it to your desktop, or to a server share, or wherever.  It really doesn't matter.

Modify the last section of the HTML code so that it points to the appropriate public folders instead of your default Calendar and Tasks.

For example, change this line: <PARAM NAME="Folder" VALUE="Calendar">
to : <PARAM NAME="Folder" VALUE="\\Public Folders\All Public Folders\My Printable Calendar">
(obviously change this to point to the actual calendar you are trying to print)

Change the <PARAM NAME="Folder" VALUE="Tasks"> line in the same manner.

Save the file

Now either create a new folder in your mailbox or pst file, right click, choose properties, go to homepage tab, browse to the HTML file we just modified, then check box to display this folder as a web page.
