    Exporting your Sims.net Diary to Outlook 2003

    I'm sure some of you do this already but I've not seen anyone post up much information about it. One of the major issues with the Sims.net diary is the limited printing functions. I always get asked if its possible to print a Diary in a similar format to MS Outlook (month view etc). The solution I came up with is to export the diary as a csv and import this into an Outlook Calendar. It works pretty well and means all the nice print templates will be available.

    I have written a simple guide and included a report definition on how to import into Outlook and Print as desired. The guide assumes some basic knowledge of outlook but i believe its fairly easy to follow. I havent had it proof read by a school yet so if you have any issues with the guide let me know:

    Download

    One important thing to note is that the CSV exports to S:\sims\ you may want to change this based on your LA/School standards or change the Def's so that Export location is chosen at runtime.

    I can't seem to download the link http://damondo.artists.mpfspromotion...ry2Outlook.zip. Please could you check it out and let me know when it can be downloaded.

    many thanks
