    instances of recurring calendar items (XP SR1)

    When I have something to be done, I'll type it into the outlook calendar at the date/time it needs to be done. If it's something that needs to be repeated, perhaps on a monthly schedule, I use Recurrence... to schedule it.

    Once I've done the thing the first time and dismissed its reminder, I can't find out how to find the date of the next instance. I also don't seem to be able to produce a list of the dates on which this thing is scheduled to happen (or for that matter, has already been done).

    How can I get this information? This seems like such basic information that it's hard to believe there aren't instructions in help on getting it.

    I'm putting these "things" into outlook as appointments but if some other kind of calendar item works better it shouldn't be hard to change.

    Thanks

    Personally, I tend to default my calendar to Month View - just for the kind of issues you are talking about. HTH

    Thanks.

    I suppose that means the reason I couldn't find out how to see the instances of an appointment was that Outlook doesn't have a way to do this.
