Issue creating new appointment


M

Mike

Hi,

When I create a new appointment in Outlook 2003 (11.8010.8017 SP2) I
get different behaviour depending how I do it :

If I select "New" from the menus or toolbar in the whole month
calendar page I get a dialog that has the "All day event" box
unchecked, ditto if I right-click in the selected date and select
"New Appointment" from the context menu.

However, if I double click the selected date I get a dialog box that
has the "All day event" box checked.

I know this sounds like a minor issue, but having to manually uncheck
this box before I can input the appointment time each time I create an
appointment has got to be irritating in the extreme. Is there a fix
for this does anyone know ?

Many thanks,

Mike Davies

There is no "fix" because it's not broken. This is working as designed.

But why is it different in the two case ?

Because that's the way Microsoft programmers wrote it.
Well I am a customer and I say it is broken. I am sorely disapointed
to know there is no switch or registry entry to fix this fault in
Outlook 2003.

Then tell Microsoft. They don't (or, at least rarely) read this newsgroup,
however.
