Default OL 2003 Cannot save a new task

Hi there,

I have a problem with my tasks in Ol2003. I will create and save a new task
and OL says following:

"Please save the task order by clicking Save Task Order on the Actions menu
in the "Tasks" folder. The viel must not be filtered or grouped for Save Task

Order to be available. Could not complete the operation. One or more
parameter values are not valid."

I am using XP and OL2003 with Exchange 2000 and the option "cached Exchange
I tried to create a new task-folder, copied all tasks to the new task folder
and it worked. but I cannot delete the old task folder, which one the system
is it a damaged task-foler-file on the exchange? in the db?
how can I repair a task folder on an exchange 2000 server?

thanks a lot

What happens if you choose Actions | Save Task Order as the prompt suggests?

Default I fixed this...better late than never

This seems to be linked to the "Save Task Order" process under the Action drop-down menu. I needed to create a "All" category under tasks (all the views had some filtering component, which disables the feature). In this "All" view, I was able to Save Task Order, and I'm now able to create and edit tasks again.

Hope this helps...
