note icon for tasks in Outlook 2003?

How can I add a note icon or some other indicator for tasks in Outlook 2003? Right now, I can't tell which tasks have notes and which don't since there is no indication of this in the typical task layout.

How can I add some sort of indication or icon to show that there is a note associated with the task?

In the Tasks view right click on any "heading" (e.g. Subject, Due Date) and choose 'Field Chooser'
From the 'Field Choose' drag the NOTES heading to a position in the row of "headings".

Unfortunately the only "format" for the NOTES field is "text" so the best you can see if the first few words of the note if one exists.

And in the "Outlook Today" view there is no method of viewing the notes field on tasks. But if you click on the heading "Tasks" it will take you to the Tasks view where you can make the above suggested changes.

Thanks for an insightful question.  I have lots of notes attached to my tasks because I use a PDA but there isn't an easy way to get at them in Outlook is there?!
