In Outlook Japanese language edition, when you create a user-defined formula field that includes Japanese fields in an Outlook view control, it may cause unexpected results.

You may receive an access violation error, or when you try to edit the formula it disappears.


These problems are caused by an error in miscounting the length of a Japanese field name. An end bracket (]) is written at the wrong position and causes these problems.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
