I need to develop a large number of recurring tasks for a client and would naturally prefer to do the work at my office.  Does anyone know of a way to move them to the client's computer?  The Outlook 2003 export routine says it doesn't do recurring tasks. (Thanks MS)

Greetings, lcs0500 !

Tasks are stored in the PST file. So if you want to export the tasks, you need to export the PST file.

Best wishes!

Hi lcs0500,

The simplest solution is to create a PST file for the client and create all the tasks in it.  That will keep them separate from all other tasks.  On the client's computer open the PST file and then select all the tasks (open the task folder and use CTRL+A), then simply drag and drop them to the client's task folder.

Cheers!
