Outook 2007 started hanging up when I click on Tasks. All other features work fine, including Email, Calendar and Journal. I have used the Tasks feature without any issues for the past 2 years, but this problem only started happening today. I ran Office Diagnostics - nothing. I then ran Office Repair through Add/Remove Programs - nothing. I then tried starting up in Safe Mode to disable all add-ins - no difference. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Any advice? Should I remove and re-install Office? Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. I ran tests on all PST files and found errors, made repairs. Unfortunately, this didn't solve the problem.

I suspected that the OUTLOOK.PST file may be corrupt. So, I created a new PERSONAL.PST file and set as default. Suddenly I was able to access the TASK functions. Setting a new default PST made Outlook download all mail items again from server, but since mail had been archived this was not a problem.

I moved all necessary TASK and CALENDAR items from OUTLOOK.PST into the new PERSONAL.PST file. I had to reset the default PST back to OUTLOOK.PST in order to access JOURNAL items, which had been saved in a sub-folder. After moving all the items, I set the default to PERSONAL.PST and deleted OUTLOOK.PST.

When I started Outlook again, it couldn't find the old OUTLOOK.PST so I had to set the PERSONAL.PST folder as primary. Now, I can access the TASK functions, and everything seems to be running smoothly. Whew!
