    O98 Recurring Appointment

    I'm using o98 C/w (8.5.6614.0) Is is possible to make a recurring appointment based on another appointment? Namely I have an appointment that occurs on the 3rd Monday monthly (this is OK) but another appointment occurs on the Thursday before that Monday - can I set this up?

    I'm not sure if I completely understand - Do you want to schedule this same meeting to also occur every Thursday or do you want to schedule a completely different meeting to occur based on when the original meeting occurs?

    Re: O98 Recurring Appointment

    I want to schedule a completely different meeting to occur based on when the original meeting occurs. I'll explain a bit more: the "main" appointment (& reminder) occurs on the 3rd Monday every month [this bit is easy]; the appointment leading up to the Monday meeting occurs on the Thursday immediately prior to the Monday. The main problem is that in some months this is the 3rd Thursday and in others the 2nd - hence why the scheduling is based on the Monday.

    Yep, this will require some VBScript code to generate the appointment. This kind of programming, unfortunately, is not my strong point.

    Many thanks to you preed & MaryJ for the prompt responses, they were appreciated. I'll leave the scripting and VBA alone as I am not sure how to.
