We have a need to print the daily calendar in a certain way in our company.  The To-Do bar lists exactly what we want.  How do we print the To-Do bar or a calendar just like it that includes:
The time of the meeting
Color Coding that we assign

Hello KimMcNally,

You can use Calendar Printing Assistant for Outlook 2007, an add-on for people who need an easy way to print and customise their Outlook 2007 calendar information from To Do bar.

If no joy, take a screenshot of the To Do bar.  Save it to a graphic editor.  Print from the editor.

Hope this helps!

Have you tried the several option listed under "Send a Calendar via E-mail..." It has several formating options that fit your description. I played with it a bit and like the different views it can produce. Then I can either email it out or simply print it.

Not sure how you have it configured, but if you print the Daily View Calendar, it includes MUCH of the same things and coloring.....

You can go to Define Styles and COPY the Daily Style....then EDIT that COPY.
In the editable areas are Tasks and the drop down includes the To-Do-Bar.

That is close, it has the color coding, but doesn't actually list the time in the subject line.  What she had in office 2003 had the time actually in the subject line.

Hmmm, unclear what you are trying to do then?
Outlook 2003 didn't have a To-Do Bar?  the Daily print looks almost identical to the 2007 Daily.

Have you tried printing the Today Screen (by clicking at the very top level of Outlook you see the Today Screen).

Sorry if I have been unclear.  In office 2003 she was able to print out something that looked like this- I am attaching the file

I see.  I think the confusion is that as you can see for the Board Welcome Reception at 6:30, the time is not inherently in the subject line of the event.  It is my belief that those other 2 calendar items had the time on the subject line because they were not starting at a 30 minute interval.  Outlook 2003 automatically put it in the subject when the time was not within the 30 minute interval.

Outlook 2007 does not appear to do that by default and I am not finding it in the options.

I actually had to put a call into Microsoft and they came back and told me what I am trying to accomplish cannot be done.  :-(

Thank you all for your help, however.
