The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

Very Interesting problem I ran into on the help desk here where I work. We have upgraded to Office XP Pro. We use MS Exchange Server 5.5. Several have now complained of receivng a meeting request or appointment message, accepting it and having it not post once but TWICE in their calendar.

We had this previously with Outlook 97 and 2000. And there are settings to determine this. Here is what we did in 2002.

1.) Opened Tools and selected Options.
2.)Selected Email Options.
3.) Clicked Advanced email options and removed the check from the box "In folders other than Inbox save replies."
4.) Clicked ok and had them Click Tracking Options.
5.) Uncheck the box " Save posts and replies."

Now in Outlook 97 and 2000 these areas would stop the duplication process on the Calendar. Not so in XP. We are stymied by this latest development.

We have been over TechNet and Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Found one article on Blackberry use with a .dll on the Exchange server but do not feel this is relevant even though they do use a Blackberry email device.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
Thanks.

I have a client who is having a strange problemn with Outlook. They are connected via Exchange. I had to remove over 3000 duplicate calendar items. Everything seems fine for about a week, then the duplicates start creeping back in. After the 2nd week there is about 700 back. SO I user my duplicate remover program, and we are fine for another week. After running it, I can logon from a diff pc and see that the dupes are gone. Why would they come back in to exchange. No other user is having this issue. Also, sometimes if we add a recurring appt, it disappears the next day. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I just started working with Macros in Excel on Monday. I've been figuring out what I need to do, searching for threads/blocks and adapting them to my needs. However, since I don't know the basics, I frequently come to dead ends. I apologize for my ignorance, but I have to start somewhere and I need to get this project finished. I have a few parts, and I've included code that I've put together/adapted adjacent to my explination.
I have a workbook with a series of worksheets
The first sheet is a Job List and the list has columns for each type of permit that can be selected for each job.
The idea would be to put an X or some indicator in a column if a certain permit is necessary for the job associated with that row.
Each subsequent sheet is one of the types of permits.
Some jobs need multiple permits.
I would like a macro that, whenever anyone adds a job, it automatically updates the necessary worksheets with the job name.
So if Job Blue needs Permit X and Permit Y, the macro will only add the Job Name “Blue” to worksheets X and Y but not Z.

Or

I've created a formula that recognizes if a cell on the job list sheet has been marked and takes the job name from column A. A macro that could recognize when the formula changes results and subsequently autofills the formula underneath the last cell would also work. I've included what I have been putting together.

I have the following, however the line indicated doesn't work:

Hello,
Setup: Outlook 2002 in a domain to an Exchange server.

We have a shared calendar to which everyone can view and add events. If an employee takes a day off, they put an all-day event in the shared calendar that shows them as being off that day, thereby allowing everyone else to know who is in and who is not. Normally, everyone can see those events with no problem when viewing a single day. The problem occurred on Friday when 13 people took the day off. If anyone had their screen resolution set to 800x600 (which most people do), then they could only see the first 10 all-day events with no scroll bars available to see the other three. The only way for them to view the other three is to change their screen res to 1024x768 and then close and reopen Outlook. Problem is, most people have 15" LCD monitors, so using 1024x768 is not acceptable, especially considering that some need 640x480 to view their screen.

As you might imagine, I am having a devil of a time finding anything online about this and how to change it. I have scoured through Outlook, ms.com, slipstick.com, and this board to find an answer, but I have found nothing helpful. I am hoping that their is some sort of registry tweak or something to make this go bye-bye.

If anyone has any idea at all on how to fix this, please oh please won't you help?!? And would someone please think of the children!

I am running Outlook 2003 on a Dell Laptop with WIndows XP. For the longest time, my Calendar has been automatically deleting almost all events older than 3 or 4 weeks. I have turned off the AutoArchiving function all together, but it still happens. I also have tried looking for any old calendar events in my Archive.PST file, but there does not seem to be anything in these files worthwhile.

So, how do I stop this from happening and where do my old events end up going, if not to the Archive.pst folder?

Thanks,

I have Outlook connected to exchange and recently some of the calendars events are off by one hour. This occur almost immediately after I was able to use my iPad to check calendar events via Activesync. I also have my Android phone connected to Exchange as well. Funny thing is only Outlook is effected. All calendars events appear correct on iPad, Android and OWA.

A:2003 Excel to Outlook Calendar appoinment VB macro creates duplicates appointments

Hi jayJay,

I'm not going to look through the whole code but what I think happens is that sinec you run the macro every time it will just add an appoitment, I think an options should be added, something like an extra column namen DONE and when the macro is run the cell in the column DONE should be given a value True() or a 1 to indicate it as done, so that when you run the macro again the column DONE cells where the valkue is not True() or is not 1 (dependign on waht you choose) is carried out.
This way you will avoid duplication.
Just an idea, happy coding.

Last week I had a registry corruption that forced me to revert to a registry copy from right after I installed Win2k. (I back up my data regularly, but I'd gotten careless about backing up the registry. Learned my lesson the hard way. I have a current ERD now...)

I've gotten most apps running OK again, but I've run into a problem with Outlook. I use it only for the calendar functions. I can open the calendar and all my existing appointments are there and OK. I can delete existing appointments. But if I try to enter a new appointment, or save changes to existing appointments, I get an error: "The item could not be saved to the folder. The folder has been deleted or removed, or you do not have permission."

Since I can access and delete appointments, obviously there are no folder access problems. I searched on the MS KB and on the web, and everything I could find referencing this error message says "you've exceeded the max mailbox size, go delete some mail." I don't use Outlook mail, and my calendar file is tiny, so that's not it.

I'm guessing there's some problem with the registry. It's also possible I outsmarted myself when I recovered from the registry crash. I had to recreate my login ID, but when I did, W2k assigned me to the folder "Gary.W2k" in Documents and Settings. (Actually I think it had done this before, and this time it created "Gary.W2k.000.")

Hello. All of my events in my Yahoo calendar have disappeared. I've gone 3 weeks now without access. I have a business account with Yahoo so they have "escalated" the issue, which I now understand is a joke since their front line people are outsourced and give me the same scripted "working on it" BS every time I call and today advised me that they have no method of communication with their escalation team. I have given up on them fixing it. I thought it was a sync issue with my iPhone/iPad however I cannot even pull up the data on the yahoo site under my login via my Windows XP or Windows 10 laptops. My business and personal life are failing as a result of this. All events in my life are stored on their servers and unfortunately, because I assumed that because my data was housed with one of the largest ISP's in existence, therefore THIS could never happen...I never did back up the data anywhere else.

My events only show up in the top half of the day in the monthly view so I can only get two events to show. The arrow points to more messages but it seems like I should be able to fit three events at least.

A:How can I have more than two events show up in my monthly calendar?

If you talking about Outlook calendar, it seems like this parameter depends on your window size. Third item shows up when your windows is about 730 pixels high (standard scaling), fourth - 900 pixels high. You can minimize ribbon (little arrow in the top right corner of the window) or change resolution to get more useful space on the screen, but looks like that's about it.

Hi,

I've been experiencing a problem with the Windows 10 Calendar app - it shows duplicate events.
I'm using a Microsoft account (Outlook.com) and have it configured on the computer. Mail app Works ok and syncs. Calendar App shows duplicate events. If I access the same calendar on Outlook.com the calendar shows OK with no duplicates. On another computer with the same Setup the calendar does not show duplicates, Works as expected so this seems a problem confined to this one computer only.

This Windows 10 instalation is about a month old (installed from scratch - no upgrade from 8) and has all published MS updates instaled and also all app updates.

Have tried to uninstall the Calendar app, rebooted, reinstall the app, but duplicates persist.

Any ideas? Thank you.

I changed the password to my Microsoft account a couple of days ago and now Facebook events won't sync to my Windows Phone, nor my Surface 2, nor in the online microsoft calendar application.

It shows old events but new ones doesn't pop up. I've tried various settings in the apps and in my Microsoft account settings online. I've tried removing the connection between my FB account and my MS account and reconnecting. I've tried removing the FB account from my phone and resyncronizing (couldn't find such an option on the Surface) but it changes nothing. Facebook events is enabled in the calendar settings on both devices and if I try to manually export my FB calendar to my microsoft calendar it tells me it cannot sync the same account twice.

So according to settings everything should work but nothing works at all!

Just installed Win10 yesterday, and taking a first look at the Calendar app. Unless I have overlooked something, this app has a flaw that makes it almost not worth using.

I'm using the app to display my Google Calendar events, a month at a time. In many cases, I have enough events scheduled for a single day that they won't all fit in the cell in Month View. Is there really no way to display all the events for a given date (including the ones that don't fit) in Month View? (For example, in the Calendar app on my phone, it is usually the case that not all the events for a given date show in the grid, but tapping the date in question displays a pop-up that shows them all). This app just runs them off the bottom of the cell. It doesn't even alert you to the fact that there are additional events for that date that it isn't displaying!

Dare I hope I'm missing something here?

/John

A:Calendar: Multiple events in month view

I guess nobody shares my angst for the perceived shortcomings of the Calendar app.

All the same, thought I'd mention that I installed an app from the Store called One Calendar that seems to be free, and does not suffer from the above-stated problem (when viewing in Month View, if there are 'n' events that don't fit in the grid, One Calendar displays a little '+n' at the top of the cell, alerting you to the fact that there's more you're not seeing; then clicking on the cell brings up the Day View, so you can see it all).

All's well that ends well.

I suspect that I am not able to do what I would like to but will ask the questions just in case...
I use the Ms calendar on my Lumia 920 which in turn updates the online version at the Ms Live website as well as the Windows Live calendar accessed via my email client.
All good so far.
Problems started when I gave the wife access to my calendar but she keeps forgetting to check it before making appointments for us (which conflict with important things like my golf).
I thought there was a way of having the calendar create an automatic email whenever I added a new event and have that email sent to the wife to alert her to my latest meeting/tee time.
Checked all places where I would have expected to find an option to make the wife a recipient of alert emails but have failed. Seems I can send an update/new event alert to myself but to nobody else.
Can somebody confirm that to be the case. (If I have selected the wrong category for this posting then apologies.)
Thanks in advance.

What if you add your wife in the entry you make in your agenda ("add someone" required or better optional) in that case she will get an e-mail (to except) and this entry will also be in your wives calendar.
Not sure if this is the right category but I also do not know which category should fit better.:)

I created an event using the voice recognition in Cortana on my Lumia 930. Fine. Worked beautifully, but it didn't sync with my live.com calendar or Outlook so I created it again manually later. Then I wanted to delete the event Cortana created ... and I couldn't. I have restarted the handset, checked within the 'Reminders' section of Cortana's menu, and tried to delete it within the Calendar app. I still seem unable to remove this rogue event.
I contacted Microsoft support (or their hopeless UK representatives B2X with their slogan 'Chat with an expert', which is just a joke) and was first told to 'enable deletion of Cortana items within the Cortana menu'. There is no such option. Then they told me to delete it from live.com. It doesn't sync with live.com, which is how I came to create the second event. Finally I was told that the only way to remove the rogue 'Cortana events' would be to do a factory reset on my, which seems a little over the top.
There has to be a better way.

Welcome to the forums @CParah . Sorry to hear that your drive bit the dust, I know what a pain that can be!

I don't think there's a way to do what you are asking unfortunately. I'm guessing you're storing calendar information locally, rather than using an Exchange/Office365/Google server? There are some free options to store your calendar information on a cloud server so that you can just sync to recover the data (and access it on your phone, etc...). Not much help now, but may help you out should it happen again in the future.

Have you still got the hard drive? There are data recovery tools that may help you get back some data, but perhaps you have already tried this.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using Outlook.com and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her Outlook.com account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her Outlook.com account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.

If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Re: Outlook 2003
Is there is a way to designate a Shared Outlook Calendar (that is used as our company-wide calendar) as an individual's default calendar. We are set up with a Microsoft XP Exchange Server.
The goal is to have the company-wide calendar download to a Blackberry Curve as the user's default calendar. Right now he sees his own calendar which he does not need. We have the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed on his network computer.
Thank you.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

Should I upgrade my IE5.5 to IE6.0, and my OE5.0 to OE6.0? If so, what is the best way to do this?

I use Hotmail. I've been getting a lot of duplicates when I open Hotmail in Outlook Express. Pursuant to one bit of advise, I close out the Hotmail account in OE and then reopened it. That kept the duplicates away for a while, but they are now back. (Only some of the emails in my Hotmail Inbox show up as duplicates in my OE Hotmail Inbox; but when there are duplicates, that happens to all the emails in the Hotmail Inbox at that time. And once it happens, it seems to do it regularly thereafter.)

One reason for my question is that maybe I'll get rid of the duplicate problem by upgrading. Another is that maybe there are improvements in IE6.0 and OE6.0 that I should be taking advantage of. But maybe there are good reasons not to upgrade. I just don't know enough and that is why I am asking.

I have Windows 98SE.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Some months ago I upgraded my Win 8.1 Surface Pro 3 to Win 10 and decided to start using Microsoft One Drive including my Lumia 950. I had always used POP 3 accounts in Outlook and followed the guidance from this website to establish an Outlook exchange Active x account. This successfully established the email (2) account and things seem to have transferred successfully. While I do not use the email(2) account and it is not my defaut account, it remains in the outlook home screen, which is not just distracting, it appears to somehow get selected as the email account and gets used accidentally. In addition, the contacts and calendar are duplicates. Calendar not so bad, as I can select which one to show and use, but it remains, but the contacts are actively duplicate which is always causing an issue.
How can I eliminate this duplication and suppress the 2nd. email account?

I have set many rules within my outlook to route emails into specific folders. When it routes the email, it also leaves the original email in the inbox so I have duplicates of the same email.

I forward all my emails with my real estate email extension into a "Real Estate" folder. I also set a rule to place an autogenerated email I receive into another specific folder ( a subfolder of the "RE" folder). These also have the real estate email extension. So my auto generated emails are appearing in the "RE" folder AND the autogen folder. Obviously the two rules are conflicting causing duplicates. Is there a way to have one rule trump another rule? Any suggestions?

Hi..After my recent experience ???? heres some thoughts that it seems may be useful for guidance for others..that have a lot of duplicates in Outlook Express...Hopefully I have explained it in simple terms...

When one uses a duplicate remover on Outlook Express ..the default setting for where the duplicates go is the deleted Items Folder......Most programs do not have a simple delete option?

So one opens one of these programs and for the inexperienced ..one choses all folders and Clicks Start....So the program starts looking for Duplicates ..and will at some stage start deleting them to the Deleted Items File....Now it will delete out of the first few folders but if there is a lot of duplicates ...at some point the deleted Items Folder will reach its capacity of 2gb.....now there is no warning of this and the Program carries on as though there is no problem and keeps removing the duplicates ,but realises it has no place to put them so it puts the duplicates meant for removable back in the folder where they came from but the originals are still there so as an example ...if 10 messages are meant to be removed there is now 20 messages in the DBX file so in fact the Duplicate Remover is now basicly doubling the number of duplicates emails it finds in each DBX file...Now this is not a problem on DBX files that are small and have sufficient room..BUT Outllok Express has a 2gb ceiling on its DBX files..

My wife and I both have an HP Pavilion with XP and Outlook Express. Her e-mail suddenly began receiving every message up to #17 in duplicate, triplicate, quadruplicate form, then starting with #18 out of 97 (she doesn't get that many any day), no message gets to be displayed. If she sends me a message, my computer's inbox shows that there are no viruses in it but the message itself doesn't show. (The antivirus is AVG; it analyzes daily.)
 

A:Outlook Express inbox duplicates all messages

Have her access her mail through your ISP's "webmail" interface, and delete message # 18.

Chances are that message 18 is either corrupt or has a huge file attachment on it, which is causing OE to time out and not send the server a "received" status for messages 1-17, which is what is causing those messages to be received again.

Operating system is XP and current browser is IE7. For the last month or so we have been getting the following error message when sending messages (most of the time but not all). "Some errors occured while processing the requested tasks. Please review the list of errors below for more details".

There is nothing shown in the Error box. In addition we have determined that the messages are sent despite the error message. However, they remain in the Outbox and the result is they are sent again the next time we send new e-mails. People have received them up to seven times before we got smarter and deleted them from the Outbox after sending.

So far I have tried all of the following to solve the problem. 1. Uninstalled and reinstalled Internet Explorer. 2. Switched back from IE8 to IE7. 3. Based upon some similar problems found on the Microsoft support forums found and deleted the Outbox.dbx and Deleted Items.dbx files. 4. Checked and rechecked all internet connection settings. 5. Run a registry correction software program.

None of these solved the problem.

I'm out of ideas and would appreciate any suggestions and wonder if anyone else has faced this problem recently.

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync 0.9.4.1 running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

Hi All

I've been working with Outlook for years but never really mastered the manipulating of calendars. I just feel like I'm missing something obvious here

I just want to take the data from one calendar and move it to a new empty one.

My issue is that I'm migrating a guy's email from POP to IMAP in 2016. Email can be dragged and dropped into the new .ost and Contacts can be exported/imported - easy-peasy!

Then I export the Calendar from the old .pst and import it into the .ost but it adds itself below the default calendar with "(This Computer Only)" written next to it and Outlook doesn't seem to want to accept it as the default and throws warning up when it's used for meeting setups and stuff.

I just feel like it should be a simple thing to ctrl+A the contents of the imported calendar and then copy+paste it into the default one.

Or is there a way of making the imported one the default?

Surely I don't have to ditch the imported one and start anew with the new default?!?!

Many thanks in advance!!

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.

Permissions:
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

If AutoArchive is enabled there will be a check mark in: Run AutoArchive every XX days
There will also be a directory path showing the location of the archive.pst file where archived items have been moved.

If this is the case, the archive.pst file can be connected to Outlook 2007 enabling you to view the contents.

Browse to the location of the archive.pst file and select it, the archive.pst file should then appear in Outlook 2007.

Hi, I have one machine that never records any security events in the Events Viewer, while all the other machines here do, not that I can make sense of them - but - should i be worried that this machine is never recording any security activity? They are all XP SP2 pro machines...

I am using the program "Random Events Sound" to randomize my startup, shutdown, trash, etc. sounds. The program uses the windows list of sound events.

I want to ADD to that list to include the events of loading various programs.... like Internet Explorer for example. Can I do this?

There is an 'event' for "loading programs" but that seems the refer to ANY program, not specific ones.

Thanks

My small C# (.net 4.6) wpf application writes 100000 events to ETW (extremely fast !!).
If I start logman from my application to generate etl and reads etl from perfview, there is usually a few hundreds lost events.
However, if I let perfview start the logging by starting my application, none is lost (always).
What is perfview doing that my start of logman is not ?
My C# code:
Guid eventSourceGuid = MyEventSource.Log.Guid;
Process proc = new Process
{
    StartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo
    {
        FileName = "logman.exe",
        Arguments = [email protected]"create trace MyTrace -bs 1024 -nb 16 1024 -p {eventSourceGuid.ToString("B")} -o {myEtlFolder}\mytrace.etl",
        UseShellExecute = false,
        RedirectStandardError = true,
        RedirectStandardOutput = true,
        CreateNoWindow = true
    }
};
proc.Start();
Process.Start("logman", "start MyTrace");
...
Process.Start("logman", "stop MyTrace");
Process.Start("logman", "delete MyTrace");

FOR Outlook 2003

When I click on a date in my calendar to make an appointment, the "All Day Event" box is the default and I have to change that to make an appintment in 1/2 hour increments. How can I change it so that the default is the "start time/end time"?

I do not have this problem when, in calendar, I click "New" below the menu.

Please advise.
Best regards,
Jeffrey

There mail is there along with address book and so is there older calendar items, but when you right click or double click to create a new task the box comes up to tye it in...you click save and close and it just disappears....and nothing shows up...hours on down the road a reminder might pop up from the test that was put in the calendar that you can not see. Also I have tried deleting the old calendar and reimporting it. also there are no filters being applied.

you need to share his calendar and this can be done with netfolders up through Outlook 2000 after that you need 3rd party software (which I recommend anyway - lots easier) I just installed this program Tuesday and it works great

Several weeks ago I was invited to an event this past weekend as were several hundred other people. I was not planning to attend the event. On Saturday I was doing my weekly system housekeeping, and I went to my Outlook Calendar and I canceled the event. Evidently my personal cancellation went back to everyone else who had been on the original invitation and was perceived as a cancellation of the event. I have been lambasted all over the place because I "canceled the event". What did I do wrong, and am I correct that it was basically a perception issue by those receiving my personal cancellation and somehow thinking that I had canceled the event? Help?

A:Outlook Calendar

I'm not totally sure what you mean by you cancelled the event. However when removing events sent to multiple reciepients through Outlook just right click and delete the event and I will not populate to anyone else.

I've set my options to show task reminders in my Outlook calendar, yet when I create a task with a start and end date, and set a reminder, it doesn't show on my calendar.

Am I doing something wrong?
 

A:Outlook Calendar

Wow... I didn't know that you could see your Task list on your Calendar... I thought Tasks were seperate from the calendar... two different things...

The task list shows on Outlook Today screen.

Where did you find the option to display them on your calendar?

I have a user that uses the calendar a lot in the current work day mode. She says that in the past it only showed hours 8:00am to 5:00pm, but now it shows everything. I am not aware of a way to limit the hours shown, does anyone have any suggestions. Going into tools >> calendar options and change settings there I haven't been able to do it.

This is outlook 2003 btw.

I think if you set the work week to 7 days, that's what it displays. If you set it to 5 days, I believe the hours changehttp://burgetave.com/id17.html

It seems as though my outlook calendar is corrupt, it won't secheule any appointments correctly on my main calendar. On my sub calendars that I created it schedules fine. When I try to save an appointment on my main calendar it saves it on the wrong date and time. For instance, if i tried to save an appointment @ 2:30pm on June 24th, it would save it as June 3rd @ 10:38am.

I have tried deleting my profile and performed a repair on microsoft office xp and i am still experiencing the same problem. Please help!

Thank you in advance.
