Chapter 3. Program Insights > A Primer on Views and Print Styles

3.4. A Primer on Views and Print Styles

Views are one of the key program elements of Outlook. Views display the contents of a folder in a defined way. There are five basic view styles; some are graphical layouts (for example, Calendar's Day/Week/Month views); others are structured as tables in the traditional row and column format. Print Styles are a close cousin to views, and define how an individual item, or the contents of a folder, is printed.

Understanding views is important. Using the right view for a given data set allows you to focus on the records you need to see, in an order that brings important details to the surface, in a format or layout that's conducive to what you're trying to accomplish. And when you can't find an appropriate view for the task at hand, understanding the options available for a view allows you to create a new, customized view that displays the information you need to see, how you need to see it.
