I want to include in my agenda only things that are TODO, or are
scheduled and not marked DONE, or have a deadline and are not marked
DONE.  This is how agenda worked a year ago before I went on maternity
leave, and now something has changed and I am seeing lots of DONE
tasks which had a deadline -780 days ago.

I have tried removing all org customisations relating to the agenda
and todo list, and have read the agenda part of the manual, but I
can't get this to work.

You can use:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-done t)
(setq org-agenda-skip-deadline-if-done t)
(setq org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-done t)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


thank you for the quick reply.  I do have those variables set.  I have
now commented one by one every line in my org setup and customisation
and found that the problem only occurs when customize includes the

'(org-todo-keywords (quote ((sequence "TODO" "DONE" "|" "CANCELLED"))))

I think the vertical bar placement is your problem, from the manual:

"The vertical bar separates the TODO keywords (states that need action)
from the DONE states (which need no further action)."

Try this:

'((sequence "TODO" "|" "DONE" "CANCELLED"))


It works!  Thank you, and John who was almost as quick in his reply :)
