Outlook 2007 - Databinding Problems - Outlook Today

Q: Outlook 2007 - Databinding Problems - Outlook Today

Hello. I'm having an issue with Outlook 2007, as part of Office 2007 Ultimate. In the past week or so, I've started to have a strange issue when launching Outlook 2007. I have resolved the issue with a work-around, but thought that I'd post here for suggestions.

System:
OS: Windows Vista Premium 64-bit
App: Outlook 2007 as part of Office 2007 Ultimate

Issue:
Outlook 2007 configured to start in Outlook Today. When launching Outlook, receive warning that Outlook did not start properly the last time it was launched and asks if desired to start in Safe Mode. Choice not found to make any difference in Outlook launch.

Sometimes, Outlook launches properly from this point.
Sometimes, Outlook launches and hangs wtih "Databinding" showing in lower-left corner of Outlook; Outlook will eventually "un-hang" and seems to work properly.
Sometimes, Outlook launches and hangs with "Loading Dataset" showing in lower-left corner of Outlook; Outlook will eventually "un-hang" and seems to work properly.
Have not been able to determine any course of events that determines which of the three occurs.

As a work-around, disabled "Start in Outlook Today" and issue no longer occurs; Outlook launches without problem or hang.

I've searched all through Technet and MSDN resources, but have not been able to locate any article referencing this issue.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or thoughts to resolve this rather annoying "opportunity"!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I have recently been having a strange problem with Outlook that I haven't encountered before and that reinstalling Office doesn't seem to fix. Whenever I load Outlook it loads as normal but never completely loads Outlook Today. It just sits unresponsively using 100% CPU power continually whilst "Databinding". Last week it was working fine and it has only been this week (after an error with shutting it down during a system shutdown). I have tried reinstalling Office and that has no effect on this problem. I have also run the .pst file repairer and that had no effect either. I also tired running it without the Avast and Zonealarm plugins and that had no effect either. It is rather annoying being unable to check my email with Outlook (although I can just about use it to do all my normal programs whilst Outlook is running - just slower). I have run out of ideas of how to fix this problem so I am wondering if any of you have any more ideas on how to fix it. I have left Outlook running for a couple of days at it still does not complete the databinding procedure.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All I have a problem with Outlook 2007. Whenever I load Outlook it appears to load program as normal but never completes. The program open and then It just sits unresponsively whilst using massive CPU power in the bottom left of the window it says "Databinding". Then thats all it does Freezez, I then have to use taskmanager just to shut it down.

I`ve looked on the web (googled the issue) and tried different ways to fix this from the repair tool for the pst, reinstalling office, disabling the today page in the registry. I`ve even hurled abusive comments at the screen and all to no avail.

I use outlook for my work being a sole trader its great the way i can get so many tools under one title. I`ve got big headaches with this problem. Any help that anyone could offer to get this fixed would be greatly received.

Many thanks

A:outlook 2007 Databinding freeze / crash on startup

I had a user with these same issues you described and had me scratching my head until I started looking at the event logs of the pc and figured out the problem was with indexing. I went into Addins, malware, registry, and recreating the users mailbox to finally figure this silly problem. Hoe this helps.
Turn off indexing on particular hard disk drive
Open up “My Computer”. Or open “Windows Explorer” and then expand Computer tree.
Right click on the hard drive to disable indexing (i.e (C drive letter).
Select Properties on the contextual menu.
Click on General tab if it’s not already selected.
Untick (unselect) the check box for Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching option.
Click OK, and wait for the index removal process to complete, which may take a few minutes.
Repeat the steps for other hard drives if applicable.
Disable the Indexing Service in Windows XP
Open “Control Panel”, select “Administrator Tools”, and open Services applet. Alternatively, type services.msc in the Rn text box from Start menu, and then hit Enter.
Scroll down and locate Indexing Service service, and then double click on it.
Click on Stop button to immediately stop the indexing service if the service status shows “Running.
Under the “Startup Type”, select Disabled to permanently disable the indexing service so that it won’t run again.
Click OK.

I have been reading all the Outlook 2007 'cannot send' comments, but my issue is a new wrinkle. Using my Gmail IPOP function, I have been successfully receiving and sending emails for 4 months with my Outlook 2007. However, starting today, when I try to send a new email or reply to an existing email, the mail goes to my Outbox just fine. But inside my Outbox, the mail is not in italics as it always was before. Hence it never leaves the Outbox.
If have already run SCANPST 3 times, until there are no more errors.
But every time I try to send a new email or reply to an old email, the emails inside my Outbox are still not in italics: so cannot be sent.
Any ideas what is the problem, please?

Good evening,
I hope that I'm reporting my problem in the correct forum,
if not, please direct me to the correct one. 
 
I use:
MS OUTLOOK 2007 (12.0.6680.5000)
XP Prof 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
 
Both AVG IS 2014 and Bandwidth Meter Pro show that e-mail arrives,
but what comes in today, I only get to see tomorrow.
 
My PC has been infected with a trojan - which I'd not detected soon enough -
in 2013 I'd neglected to let AVG IS 2013 do regular virus scans.
 
With MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware Pro (paid version),
it looks as if I've managed to kill off (most of) the effects of the trojan -
except for this nuisance effect in OUTLOOK 2007:
 
Rogue internet traffic (as reported on the graphs of Bandwidth Meter Pro)
has been reduced VERY much - what remains still looks suspicious, but could be from other sources. 
 
TCPView reports 64 occurrences of "avgemcx.exe"
all at PID 3540, Protocol UDP, and local address ranging from 1096 to 65518.
No other unaccounted-for programs reported there.
 
This PC has been donated to me - the installation disks are not available.
 
I've downloaded DSS.com and Combofix and could generate reports when needed.
 
Thanks for advice which may help solve my problem

I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
 

A:Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!

"Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the specified folder location."

I backed up my .pst (and archive) files, uninstalled Outlook, re-started Windows, and re-installed Outlook. The problem persisted.

I can click on Inbox in the file list on the left of the Outlook screen - works fine. The problem is more of an annoyance than a major problem, but I'm uneasy that something's not working proprerly - Outlook's too important to me for odd, unexplained things to be happening!

I was wondering if anyone has seen this and has the fix for it. I'm running Outlook 2003 under Windows XP. When starting Outlook, I will momentarily see pending calendar items and tasks on the Outlook Today panel but it then goes blank. In addition, the Save Changes function on Outlook Today customization seems to be ignored. I'm the administrator of my local PC. I've tried the Detect and Repair option with no luck. Following a Microsoft tech letter, I renamed outlwvw.dll and had the system reinstall the dll - again no change.

If anyone knows what is wrong I'll be very grateful. Many thanks.

A:Importing Distribution list from Outlook 2007 to outlook 2007

The only advise I have is to give you incite into the cvs file.

It is the equivalent of a XML markup, but a file a programmer likes to deal with better. It's laid out in what is known as comma delimited formatting. That means, when the file is being read by a program, it stops at the comma's. Everything before the comma is the current entry. Everything after the comma is the next entry, and before etc. The read stops when no more commas are found, and the last entry is taken.

Comma delimited format should allow for the cross platform exchange. If it doesn't try using the XML format instead.

Hope I helped.

Recently I experienced a HDD failure on my system disk where my OS and Outlook 2000 was installed. I lost the e-mails in my inbox since Outlook stores its 'Outlook Today' pst file in 'C:\Documents and Settings\<PROFILE>\Local settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook'. So next time the drive or C: crashes or I need to reinstall Windows I want all incoming e-mails to be located on a disk which I always keep backed up. BUT it is not possible to change the path of the Outlook standard .pst file. So I got a tip from google that I could delete the .pst file and then when Outlook restarts I can redirect the .pst file and browse to a prefered location or prefered file. So I did and that worked, BUT the problem is; I now get 'Outlook Today' twice in the 'Folder List'. It looks like I have two .pst files open but both of them refers to the same file. If I try to close one or the other it tells me that I can't close a .pst file where contacts, calender and so on resides.

How do I get rid of one of them ???

PS. If you wonder why I use OL2000 it is because I like this version. Fast installation and no extras. Wanna keep it simple. ;-)
 

A:I see 'Outlook Today' twice in Outlook 2000

Hi trueanswer

Create a new .pst file in Outlook 2000 and make it the Default Delivery Location.
Close Outlook and restart for the changes to go into effect.

You should then be able to close the other Personal Folders.
If a ghost folder remains, close and restart Outlook 2000 to see if that makes a difference.

If restarting still reveals a ghost folder that will not close, do you have Outlook 2000 setup in Corporate Workgroup mode?

On (2), go to your Accounts and tweek the email user-id to make in invalid.
Also make sure you SAVE a copy of all outgoing email.
This will stop your ability to send and you can then watch to see if your correspondents STILL have bogus email.

When I composed a new email with Outook 2003, I could change the font, the size and colour of my text. However, I've recently installed Outook 2007 and whenever I compose, or reply, to an email, the editing buttong (copy, paste, cut, bold, itallic, underline, size, centre text, etc etc) are all 'grey' (i.e. I cannot click on them to alter them).

I have tried changing my email format from "HTML" to "PLAIN TEXT" and "RICH TEXT", neither of which helped my problem.

I changed and tried new messeges by changing the format to Rich and HTML from both the "Tools" option in the main window and the actual message from the 'New Messege --> Options" menu.

Do I have to change the format then completely restart Outlook? I shouldn't think so. However on all four occasions I've tried (Rich and HTML on the main 'Tools' and on individual message) the editing / formatting options were still inexecutionably 'grey'.

I then went to "Help --> Office Diagnostics" to run a check.

Nothing has been solved.

Secondly, the program often changes the "end time" of an appointment to the following day. This is just driving me craqzy. I enter the start time, then how long the appointment will last, save it, and then discover that the program has changed the ending time to the following day. It seems to do it on a random basis, I can't see any rhyme or reason to when it changes it and when it doesn't.

The critical folders are folders that were created manually. They were used to store email messages that came in that were important. They were simply dragged from the Inbox and put into that folder. There were also folders within that folder. I'm not sure if these folders and subfolders were in the Inbox or not. They may not have been.

The way I imported it was by going to TOOLS>ACCOUNT SETTINGS>DATA FILES tab>and pointed to the old PST file.

I also pointed to the archive.pst file as well, but later went to FILE>ARCHIVE and pointed to the old archive.pst file in there. Bot ways did not reveal the folders that are needed.

Is Outlook 2007 not able to read all data from Outlook 2003 pst files, or is there a fix for this?

Please advise.
 

A:Move from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007 not successful; not reading certain folders

I purchased a new Notebook with Office 2007 installed and copied over my Outlook 2000 pst file. I also had manually created folders for filing important emails. Mine were sub folders within the Inbox folder. Everything copied over, but I could not see the manual folders at first until I double clicked the Inbox folder in the side panel and then they spilled out. I would look for them in that panel and double click anything there starting with Inbox, Sent etc. Also try doing a search for any subject or address of an email you may have saved.

When copying over the pst file I think everything is copied. Appears you did not just copy contacts for example, but the complete pst file. I think the folders are there as Sub Folders, just hidden within one of the main folders such as Inbox.

Hi,
I joined this forum in hopes that someone can possibly help me with a problem. I've search many pages of issues listed on the forum, but don't come across my detailed problem.

Today, Outlook is going haywire, when I use my mouse to click on a email to view in the right pane, it opens up to full screen, then if I X out of that email it sometimes shuts down Outlook all together. If I click on a file folders + sign to expand it, it just flashes and won't stay open until you click it several times. I run three different email addresses on Outlook and when I switch to one or another it goes nuts. It's a;most like my mouse has gone faulty???

Can't drag copy and paste when forwarding an email, like to highlight email address so they don't show up in the email. By right clicking and dragging, the words highlight, but when you let go of the right mouse button, everything unhighlights...

I'm running AVG Pro and have ran a scan, nothing, I've ran my Advance System Care and nothing and ran the Windows internal diagnostics, but no help.

Any help would be great, for I don't have time or money to put in the repair shop...If you need more info to be able to help, just asked me!

Thanks,
John Young

I am a self-employed business development manager and have recently gone from Windows office 2003 to 2007, running on XP Professional. I use Outlook as a simple CRM system (customer relationship management) I follow closely customer contact by relying on the the Journal application which stores itself on the Activities folder - along with all emails and attachments.

Since changing to 2007 the system no longer operates - It is difficult to open a Journal and it does not attach itself to the activities folder. Also emails are no longer attached.

Is there any hope of restoring these vital features? I am actually losing data which is very bad news. Any ideas?

VERY Scunnerd1

I have multiple email profiles I use for work and personal. My Dell Inspiron Laptop running Vista has problems quitting Outlook. Very often when I quit Outlook it closes but the Windows Task Manager still shows it is running (even after waiting 10 seconds). I then "end process" from the task manager and sometimes it opens the previous profile and doesn't give me the option to choose which profile I want to use.

My old desktop running XP didn't have this problem. I also had problems with the Business Contact Manager and followed directions to disable in Regsys.

Ideas to fix?

Please assist me. We are using the Windows 7 Professional operating system at work and included in that is the Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 email programme. I have queried this problem with the tech guys at work but they cannot resolve my problem. What I want to know is why the font, font size and font colour keeps on changing back to Arial 10 Black even though I have changed it to Arial Narrow 11 Blue? Sometimes it will only change back after 2 or 3 days but today it changed back on the same day.

If someone can help me please; I use windows Vista Home with MS Outlook 2007. I recently copied my PST file from my computer in Vancouver and have added it (imported it) to another computer in Toronto that used to belong to an old staff member. His outlook still had information in it i need to keep as i have taken over his position, so i simply exported my PST file on my computer and impoted it to his.

The problem: When i use the SEARCH mechanisim above the inbox to look for emails it will only find old information. It will find info quickly and properly for the the information of the last user only, even though my emails and info are in the inbox as well.

Example: There are say 700 emails in my inbox (i am trying to clean it up!) if 200 are his emails and 500 are mine, when i do a search for a specific piece of information it will only search his info and place results as such to that.

Resolution: I assume there is a simple fix as this seems to be an isolated problem as would apprecaite any help anyone can offer.

Thank you very much!

I've had 4 laptops in as many days come across my desk from customers lately with the same issue

Is anyone else experiencing this problem.

This has all happened since the update to AVG 2011

Steps I've taken...
1. Used the scanpst program that comes with office (this fixes the errors found in the pst file, but Outlook 2007 continues to report that outlook didn't shut down properly and is going to check the pst every time outlook is run)
2. Made sure Outlook wasn't running in the task manager before restarting the machine.
3. Re-installed both Outlook and created a new pst and user
4. Disabled the email scanner in AVG options
5. Outlook won't let me remove the AVG add in from the trust centre options

The only way I can get Outlook to work properly is to do a AVG custom install and deselect the Outlook Email add in option. Problem is that sort of defeats the purpose of having AVG in the first place. I know the quick way is to just install another anti-virus but I was just wondering if anyone has come across a fix for this ?

I found the problem lol.

In all seriousness, I'd try another Free Anti-Virus like Avast and see if the same issue arises.

Suddenly yesterday my copy of Outlook 2007 refuses to open because of some mso.dll file is incompatible with this version of Office. I have Office 2007 installed for Windows 7 Professional. This install of Office is working except for Outlook. I have the same copy of Office installed on my desktop using Windows 7 and that works just fine.

Anyone know how to fix this issue?

Did you get a new phone? I had the same thing happen with AT&T's Windows Mobile software installer. The fix is to uninstall the whole thing or use system restore to go back to a restore point prior to the problem's occurrence.

First, I apologize if this is a stupid request. I am not terribly computer savvy and do not have a lot of experience with Outlook. I use Outlook 2007 for my personal email which is served by Comcast and also for my gmail account. I was able to configure Outlook so that all of my mail came to the same inbox. This worked great for me. Last Thursday, while installing Windows XP Service Pack 3, my system was corrupted and it required the drive to be wiped clean. My IT person installed Outlook 2007 )part of Microsoft (part of Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007). I configured my Comcast accoutn and it works great. When I followed the same instruction for configuring the G Mail account that I used 2 weeks ago, I now have a much different outcome. There is a separate inbox, with all of the Google labels that I can't stand. Now, it will not allow me to delete any of the items, and it will not display all of the items. I keep getting a message that says "Cannot open this item. The Fold "all Mail" (or "Inbox") cannot be selected. This may be becasue of a limitation of your IMAP server or the folder may have been deleted or moved. I give up...... HELP!
 

A:Solved: Problems with Outlook 2007

Looks like you set it up with IMAP instead of POP. You need to make them use the same data file when you set up the account in Outlook. You could just delete the extra data file or PST file.

Outlook kept asking for my password and ignoring my correct answer. It was unusable. I deleted my account and reconfigured it and now it does connect. The problem now is it attempts to download hundreds of emails - takes quite awhile - nothing downloads at all - it then starts over downloading those same emails again - still nothing. The cycle just keeps repeating. I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows 7. Please help.

I would look into changing the default sending account, especially if you have multiple email accounts in Outlook.

Is there anything you can identify that differentiates addresses that work from those that don't? Maybe certain domains?
