appointments from tasks - advanced filter/view

Dear Experts,
you can create appointment in calendar from task (by draggisk task to calendar).
If you create such appointent, does the appointment object contains some reference to the source task?
can you for example prepare and SQL filter (view) showing only those tasks which have a corresponding appointment in calendar?
thanks

Yep, you can. Using MS Office for project management is an enhancement found in 2010. Have a peek: http://gigaom.com/2009/09/23/5-outlook-2010-productivity-enhancements/

Unfortunately I cannot find what I need in the arcticle you provided, cityqat.
Can you please be more specific?

or maybe other Expert could help?
I need a way to display tasks (maybe using SQL filter) from which there are no appointments created in Calendar.

Otherwise I will follow Julian123 advice.

thanks!

Hi, ja-rek.

What do you have in mind when you say "display tasks"?  As Julian123 said, we can use VBA to search the calendar for tasks with subjects matching those of tasks.  There's no built-in way of displaying that in Outlook though.  In other words, we can't filter your task list to show just those tasks with calendar appointments.  We could display that info in a dialog-box, send it to Excel, or something like that.  

Julian123 also pointed out an obvious flaw in this kind of search.  All we can match on is the subject.  That's going to provide inaccurate results since it's entirely possible that there will be appointments with subjects that match tasks even though that appointment wasn't created by dragging and dropping the task to the calendar.

Perhaps if you could share what you need to accomplish we could recommend a solution.
