SUMMARY

This article describes where Microsoft Outlook 97 Journal settings are stored in the Windows Registry.

MORE INFORMATION

In Outlook, you can set the Journal to automatically record items. To set these options follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. In Options, click the Journal tab.

On the Journal tab you have options to automatically record items and also record files from other Microsoft Office 97 programs. The settings in the are stored in the Windows Registry in several registry keys. These keys are located in the registry under:

   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\ 
                

Each key pertains to a specific Journal setting. For example, the settings for automatically recording Meeting responses is located in:

   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\ 
   Meeting Response
                

The settings for recording files from Microsoft Word are located in:

   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\ 
   Microsoft Word
                

In each key there is a "Name" value called "Enabled" with a "Data" value of either "0x00000001(1)" for on or "0x00000000(0) for off. If this key Name is missing, the setting is off. For example, if the Enabled Data value is set to 0x00000001 then Microsoft Word files are automatically added to the Journal.

Each key also contains a "Name" value called "AutoJournaled" which determines if the item shows up in the Journal Options as a user selectable setting. Setting the AutoJournaled Data value to 0x00000000(0) removes the Word from the Journal options.

The following examples demonstrate how to turn on the Word setting, and how to remove Word as an option in the Journal.
