Hi there, not sure if anyone will know this one, but hope you don't mind me asking.

I'm using the Calendar on MS Office Outlook 2003. When I'm creating a new appointment, the box for 'Location' allows me to access 10 previous entries, so I don't have to write them out again. I presume these are saved by an Autocomplete process.

I would like Outlook Calendar to save more than 10 locations. But I can't find anywhere to adjust the number of previous entries saved by Autocomplete.

It may be impossible, but I'm hopeful that there is a way if someone could just tell me where it is!

I've tried looking up advice using Google, etc, but I just get information about autocomplete for writing email addresses, which is not what I'm asking.

Any ideas?

cheers,
Tim

Would be happy to be told otherwise, but AFAIK it isn't possible.

The list in question is a MRU (Most Recently Used) list called LocationMRU, that is stored in the registry at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Preferences\LocationMRU

Your not the first to want this functionality either,
