More then 5 appointments on the same time in your Outlook Calender

We found a problem after using the Outlook Calender for a few years.
I work at a big company, and when we plan more then 5 appointments at the same time in the Outlook Calender, then it won't show it to us. What can i do about this?

Is there a Patch or Add on for this problem?

Waiting for your answer!

Hello Skip,
There are patches and upgrades that may address this problem.  you should probably check Microsoft's website for updates.  Also, here is a good link that deals with Outlook calendar issues.
Hope this helps !!

This is not solving my problem, i've looked there already. I need an add on or patch that will solve this problem. So i can put more than 5 appointments at the same time in my calender.
Is this question on Storage or on Outlook?!

I looked for your answers Pratigan, i wanna thank you for your hard work, but it's not what i ment.

When our servicedesk get 7 calls from employers that they are sick, then they want to set it in the calender. So everybody knows that those persons aren't available.
But if they put more than 5 appointments on the same day and on the same time, then the Calender won't show the last 2 appointments. So i think it's the view. Because if we delete the first appointment, then it shows one of the appointments that we couldn't see before.

Now we need a sollution for this problem.
We want to put more than 5 appointments in the callender at the same time. (try to make more then 5 appointments at the same time, same date. And then you know what i mean).

Thanks already for the hard work
Have you tried printing the calendar once you enter the appointments and see how many display in the printout.  I do believe there is a default setting, however it depends upon what version of outlook you are using and what OS.  Let me know and I'll track it down..
If you change the time duration to other than the default of 30 minutes you can add more entries for that day.  Change the duration to 0 minutes and test how many entries you can add.  Also check out the add in features for the calendar to see if there are any settings for a master calendar.  Are you using this on a mail server ??
I had tested changing the duration to 0 and I was able to add 7 and see them.
I'm using outlook 2002, what version are you using ?
Does your company have lotus notes, Notes calendar is much more versitile for this type of thing.

We use outlook 2000 and we run on w2k.
By printing the calender it shows all appointments.

And we can put more appointments on one day, but if we have more then 5 appointments on almost the same time, then it only shows 5. What to do about it?
Also skip, a few more thoughts, have you looked into  creating a group calendar?http://www.slipstick.com/calendar/scheduleall.htm
