Oulook custom task field losing data

pts.

Hi all - I'm kind of stumped on this one. I have a customer that decided to create a new field in Tasks in Outlook 2003, they named the field Council and proceeded to start typing in names in the field. When she closed outlook and relaunched it, the field was empty. I reproduced this behavior on sever machines. We run Outlook 2003, sp1 in cached mode (If I take it out of cached mode I can't even see the task lists...) Any thoughts?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We use Outlook 2003 SP1 in non-cached mode. I tried this and my new Custom field disappeared entirely when I exited and relaunched Outlook. However, I went back in to customize the view (again); under “Select available fields from” I chose my new Custom field from “User-defined fields in folder.” Thereafter, the Custom field remained visible, complete with all info entered in it, including after exiting and relaunching Outlook. Worth a try.

    *sigh* of course today the stupid thing is working flawlessly on my computer. I tried removing the field and then readding it (after closing outlook) and it still isn't working.

    Sorry tried to replicate your problem and the field was still there after a restart. We run sp1 in cache exchange mode. No problems default installation.
