Question about Palm Zire 31 Handheld
When I close Outlook 2000 after having opened a Note for edit or read-only, I get the following error messages: "Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid." -and- "The note will close and your changes will not be saved." Oddly, the changes, if any, are saved. But, the message is annoying. When I researched this message, Microsoft has a KB note (KB842942) regarding Outlook 2003 and a Live Meeting Add-in. The only thing close is that I recently ran, thus configured, NetMeeting - all of which aftermy Palm stuff had been installed. Oh, I also logged onto a WebEx meeting, which installed something, too. Is there a way to correct this, if it's Palm related, w/o having to uninstall and re-install all of this stuff? Thanks!
I had this exact same issue. Here was my solution:
As you know, notes are named using the first line in your note, and special character rules apply to the name of your note. In my case I was creating a note like "New/Used Machines" and detailing my notes within. The forward slash is a BAD character to use, so the solution was to just change the slash to a dash so that my note is now named "New-Used Machines", and poof. Problem resolved.
Bottom line, stick to alphanumeric characters and maybe the dash in naming your notes, and the problem will go away...
Microsoft should fix this because it would be so simple to give the user a meaningful warning message, and prevent you using invalid characters in the name.

Tips for a great answer:
Enable Log-On Screen
Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.
To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".
In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".
In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.
Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.
Change Log-On Screen Background Color
To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".
In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".
Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".
Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.
Write down these values somewhere.
Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".
In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.
In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).
The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.
Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

The underlying reason why Outlook displays this "data file" check is very simple. There is a single flag in the header of the data file that is a Boolean value (True or False). While you use Outlook the value of this flag is constantly changing as the data file
is updated. When the update begins the value is changed to False and
then when the update completes the value is changed back to True
(implying the update is finished and successful).
the key to the problem is the shut down process because once the
Outlook.exe process is exited this flag value cannot be changed. If the
Outlook.exe process was terminated prematurely or a 3rd party add-in did
not properly set the flag value to True then the flag value can be left
at False. If you start Outlook with a data file where the value of the
flag is False you are guaranteed to see the "data file" check. If the
value of the flag is True then you will not see the "data file" check.
Right now, there are a few known common causes for this issue:
- Shutting down Windows before the Outlook.exe process has exited
- 3rd party add-ins improperly "closing" the data file
- Outlook crashing
- Non-Outlook process accessing the data file
Regarding the post advised by Rod, I would like to explain more detailed:
you shut down Outlook, the Outlook window goes away, but the
Outlook.exe process can continue to run for some time. That's why you
can see Outlook.exe sitting in Task Manager for a few minutes after
closing the Outlook window. If you shut down Windows while the
Outlook.exe process is still running Windows will not wait for the
Outlook.exe process to exit. So, you increase the likelihood of
encountering the "data file check" issue the next time you start Outlook
(because the Outlook.exe process was not able to "close" your data
file(s) completely before Windows was shut down).
On the other hand, if you leave Outlook running when you shut down Windows the Outlook.exe process will continue to run and exit on its own. When Windows is shut down, it sends messages to all visible window frames telling them to quit, and will wait for those programs to quit before shutting down. Not until all processes with open windows have exited will Windows finally shut down. This is somewhat counter-intuitive to most people as traditional training has always advised manually closing applications before shutting down Windows.
