I was thrilled to find the TaskPad view, but found this post looking for a way to filter viewed tasks by the day I have _selected_. Think "digital tickler file".
Thanks to Duane Nutley's post (http://dnutley.wordpress.com/2008/01...e-interesting/) I can offer the following solution that worked for me on 2003:
1. Make sure you are in the Calendar in Outlook.
2. Click on the View menu.
3. Click on TaskPad View (make sure you can see all items in your list. You may need to click on the double arrow at the bottom of the menu to achieve this).
4. Click on Active Tasks for Selected Days.
Hope this is as useful for you all as it was for me...
