    Calendar time display (Outlook 2003)

    My work version of Outlook 2003 shows time formats in 24 hour clock. I can find no way to change this to 12 hour am/pm view. I dislike the 24 hour setting. My windows settings are set to 12 hour view. Is this a server side setting in Outlook? We have an Oracle server rather than exchange server and are just in the process of migrating from Netscape.
    Thanks

    It takes the same setting as Control Panel | Regional Settings | Time Display.

    Re: Calendar time display (Outlook 2003)

    Hi John,
    Hate to disagree but my regional settings are set to 12 hour display, that is why I thought it may be server side. We are on Oracle server and piloting Outlook 2003. So far I am not impressed with the build. Anyway thanks for the reply - but there must be more to it than the Windows setting.

    Re: Calendar time display (Outlook 2003)

    I take no offense at your disagreement, but in my XP OS and Office 2003 installation I can change the Outlook Calendar hours view Hour Display to 24 hour by setting Control Panel | Regional and Language Options | Customize | Time tab setting to H:mm:ss tt (using the capital 'H' turns it into 24 hour), and back to 12 hour display by resetting the same dialog to h:mm:ss tt (lower case 'h' turns it to 12 hour). (I didn't check, I think the ' tt' may be unnecessary for 24 hour view.)

    In a brief search, I couldn't find anything in the MSKB or the 2003 ORK that indicates any other issue, local setting, or server-side setting for the time display. Perhaps there is an installation option or enforceable server side setting that another Lounger knows of. I hope someone can get your problem solved.

    Hi John,
    Thought I would try changing the regional settings to 24 hour clock then back again to see if this made a difference and it now works. It may be that the initial instalation of Outlook did not pick up the settings correctly and just needed some help or Windows 2000 may have been confused with the Regional setting. I have had a similar problem before with regional settings not being set properly on Windows installs and needing a refresh.
    Thanks for your help. Once again, the simplist solution proves to be the correct one. (Which I find happens very often in IT!)
    Have a great day,
    JOTO

    Ah, sweet mystery of Microsoft. There are other settings that don't reliably stick with Outlook unless you close and reopen it, this may be another of those that worked for me immediately, but not for you until you kicked the tires and slammed the doors.

    PS, I don't like Outlook 2003 that much either, I don't know what the fuss is about. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
