Outlook 2003 weekdays and recurring appointments


M

Martin Main

As I live and work in the UAE, I have amended by work week to reflect the
work week in the UAE, this being Sunday to Thursday. However, whenever I use
recurring appointment bookings it seems to ignore this and reverts to a Mon -
Fri work week within the calendar system. Is there are any way to overcome
this problem or is the Mon - Fri hard coded in Outlook to ignore the user
configurable work week settings?

In what way is Outlook ignoring it with recurring appointments?

If I book a recurring appointment and choose weekdays from the selection of
options presented when you select recurrence, I end up with appointments
booked from Monday through to Friday and not as per the weekdays specified in
Outlook 2003 calendar options, which should be Sunday to Thursday.

Workdays and weekdays are not the same thing. What recurrence are you
specifying?

Hmmm, I guess you're going to have use the weekly recurrence and set the
days of the week you want it to recur

Thanks, this looks as though it will fulfil the requirement.

I understand the difference in terminology, but in a non Western country
weekdays don't necessarily mean Mon - Fri and workdays in general become
workdays for most people, which in the case of the UAE is Sun - Thu. It
sounds as though selecting weekly recurrence then selecting all the days
applicable will overcome my problem. Thanks for response.

These countries must not use a Gregorian calendar, then.
