    Premature Anniversary Date in Outlook (2002 (10.2627.3501) SP-1)

    When I schedule anniversaries or birthdays with Outlook they sometimes appear either the day before the scheduled date or range across the day before and the intended date. How do I correct this? Or, what have I done wrong?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    "All day" events can shift an hour when daylight savings kicks in, or if the time zone is changed, particularly if Outlook is sync'd with a Palm or other program that doesn't handle times the exact same way as Outlook. If you look more closely and discover that, for example, the birthday runs from 11:00PM to 11:00PM the next day, that's your best bet as to the cause. Not sure of the fastest way to fix it.

    Thanks for the response. I agree with your analysis if I had personally scheduled the event, however, birthdays and anniversaries are provided by Microsoft as part of the contact record and recorded as a date without any mention of a time. One would asume that Microsoft in their wisdom would have accounted for variances in daylight savings time. Even so, why would they map a single date into a two day event?

    What I find hard to believe is that I'm the only one experiencing this problem, although, admitedly it is not the end-of-the-world.

    Well... I use Palm for calendaring, so I'll plead "no idea." <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I realize this is an old post but... I had the problem too with OL2k. I was hoping it had been fixed in XP.

    Are either of you changing (moving across) time zones? That could be one possibility.

    Are you setting these up as All Day Events without a specific hour timeframe? I don't have the problem described in either OL2000 or OL 2002 with neither MS installed US Holidays nor Anniversaries I have created when I set them up as All Day Events.

    Actually I did a search on this forum and found that it's a common problem with birthdays etc when one changes time zone. That's what did happen to me when I moved from one to another. Now I have the new issue of figuing out how to handle stuff working in one time zone and living in another. I want appointments to STAY in the time zone I set them in for a change <G>.
