OL2000 disabling inplace editing for contact lists and task lists, etc


Pedro CR


Can someone please help me with this one:
I manage a small SBS2000 instalation (20 users) running outlook 2000 with
exchange 2000.
Outlook 2000 has the annoying feature that whenever you click on an item in
a task list or contact list and start typing, you modify the contens of the
item (without noticing).
This happens often in the company and has recently resulted in inadvertedly
destructing critical information contained in public contacts and tasks

I would like to know if there is a way to disable this in place editing
feature, making changes to items only possible if you double click on them
and openng the window with the item info.

Thank you in advance for your help




It's a view setting...go to View | Current View | Customize Current View,
click Other Settings, and clear the checkbox for "Allow In-Cell Editing".
