    Hoping to confirm what appears to be the case, that the format of the line entries in OUTLOOK.HOL (or OUTLOOK.TXT for older versions) cannot include a date range, but just a single day?
    Code:
    [Country or Description] ###
    Event or holiday description, yyyy/mm/dd
    Event or holiday description, yyyy/mm/dd
    Event or holiday description, yyyy/mm/dd
    Thanks!

    Yes, as far as I know each holiday has to be specified separately. So you can't specify Christmas Day and Boxing Day as a 2-day range.

    Thanks, I thought that was the case. Fortunately not too awkward since you can duplicate lines and edit slightly...

    Can you put anything else in the file? A category or free/busy state?

    No, it's just meant to update the list of holidays - each version of Outlook comes with a list that extends just a year or so into the future at the moment of release, so it's soon outdated. The file serves no other purpose.
