DST has created a mess of Outlook calendar

Guest

I am running Outlook XP (2002), and since the new DST change, my calendar has
become a mess. I have used the Windows DST update, the Office DST update, and
the TZmover. All of the Events that were created have been converted to
Appointments. Interestingly, these conversions have all occurred within the
new DST time of March 11 - Nov 4. Please help!

More info: I have a few hundred events that were converted to appointments-
is there a way to convert them back to events without re-entering them one by
one? I have tried changing the DST setting in Outlook, but this only converts
some of the dates. The TZMove program found the items with inaccurate dates,
but does nothing about the appointments that used to be events. Help!

Events = 12 am to 12 am and changing the TZ changed these to 1 am to 1 am or
something similar. The usual way to fix it is to set the computer time zone
so they are correct and export it to excel or a CSV, move or delete the
original items, then fix the computer so the tz is correct and import.

Since some are correct and some aren't: If you can identify the ones that
are wrong (i.e., only the holiday category) you can export to excel and
delete the ones that are correct and use Excel's tools to fix the bad ones
and import them.
