    I had this problem in previous versions of Outlook but was hoping that my new Office 2010 version would fix this [s]problem[/s] feature but it doesn't.

    When I am looking at the calendar and have the top line showing dates that do not include the 1st of the month, Outlook Calendar will patiently wait 25 seconds and then jump up to the line that has the 1st of the month. I do not want it to do this; I want it to stay where I put it. This is very frustrating when I need to look a date range from the middle of one month to the middle of the next, as when planning vacations.

    I have searched this forum and through out the Outlook help system (ha!) but not even a mention of the problem/feature. How can I get Outlook Calendar to stay put?

    Sorry, no help here, but I agree that I hate it. If it is the end of the month, I want to see the next 4 weeks, not the last 4 weeks!

    I don't know of a way to make it stick... but here's a quick trick I use to see the weeks or days I want to see. I keep my To Do bar open and have it set to show me two months (right click and go to Options). When I click into my calendar for either Month or Week view, I just drag down through the couple of weeks that I want to see in those mini calendars that are in the To Do Bar.

    Talking

    I have a similar gripe. Most of the time I want to show the Calendar in 1 Month view with this week at the top.
    The following is a bit crude, but does the job (in Outlook 2003).
    It's a VB script which has the same effect as pressing the following buttons:-
    'Month, Scroll Down, Scroll Down, Today' whenever the Calendar folder is selected.

    On rebooting, Application_Startup() is run which initialises the necessary objects etc.
    When a folder is selected (from the Folder List), myOlExp_FolderSwitch() is run.
    The commented lines were used during code development to show the button names.
    These can be uncommented if you're interested in seeing how it works, or to change what it does.

    Under 'Tools -> Macros -> Visual Basic Editor',
    copy and paste the following code to 'Project1 -> Microsoft Office Outlook Objects -> ThisOutlookSession'.


    Code:
    Dim WithEvents myOlApp As Outlook.Application
    Public WithEvents myOlExp As Outlook.Explorer
            
    Sub Application_Startup()
        Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        Set myOlExp = myOlApp.ActiveExplorer
    End Sub
     
    Private Sub myOlExp_FolderSwitch()
        Set myOlExp = myOlApp.ActiveExplorer
        Set myOlView = myOlExp.CurrentView
        Select Case myOlExp.CurrentFolder.Name
            Case "Calendar"
                myOlView.GoToDate (DateAdd("d", 100, Now))
                Set myBars = myOlExp.CommandBars
                Set myBar = myBars("Standard")
                'MsgBox ("BAR " & myBar.Name)
                Set myCtrls = myBar.Controls
                Set myCtrl = myCtrls("Month")
                'MsgBox ("BUTTON " & myCtrl.Caption)
                myCtrl.Execute
                'MsgBox ("BAR " & myBar.Name)
                Set myCtrls = myBar.Controls
                Set myCtrl = myCtrls("Today")
                'MsgBox ("BUTTON " & myCtrl.Caption)
                myCtrl.Execute
            Case Else
        End Select
    End Sub
