Hi Guys

I keep coming up with these weird ones
Any here goes

I am using a calendar view:
If i open the view showing a 31 day view the correct day is shown as todays date. If I change to 5 day view for example and then back to 31 the days are off by one
e.g.
Wednesday December 10    31
Wednesday December 10    5
Thursday December 10        31

It seems to work OK for my Shared,desktop on first use view

Any Ideas

James

Are you using an early version of 4.6 or 5.0?  There were some bugs like that reported at the time.

Oh, yes,I remember you are using 5.0.11.  Perhaps the bug has resurfaced.

Use the default values for Calendar (Preferences / International settings). They are Sunday/Monday/Monday.  My version does not exhibit this problem, by the way.

Recent example:

Older example, with the International issue:

Try these

Open to calendar view and Hold Shift + F9 to rebuild the index.., if that doesn't resolve
Create new copy of the database and check if this happens.., if that doesn't resolve
At server console issue commands load fixup and updall -r (parameter database path at the end of the command)

adspmo,

Which?  The interbational settings, or the rebuild?

Rebuild won't help you, since it is a display issue, not a view index issue.  The problem was once explained to me as "Notes calculates day of week in several places in the calnedar display code, and if it has some off settings for first-day-of-week, it may sometimes cache the maping incorrectly."  In other wrds, it may have become confused as it went from building the quick-pick calendar right before the large calendar or vice versa, or some other comboo of DOW calculations versus order mappings for the display.

Please try it and let me know.

I tried copying from the mail template and had the same problem. Is it possible this is a coding error. The odd thing is it is only the 31 day view

I have seen the same problem in the mail file in the past.  Will everyone please stop assuming it is a problem in the design? if Notes is showing that today is the 11th, but that today is not Thursday, then Notes has lost its mind.  That's it.  Plain and simple.  Nothing to do with design.

So, the question becomes, Is there a way to force Notes to retain its sanity?  Changing design is UNLIKELY to do that.  Some setting is more likely.

James,
What happens if you do the same thing in your mail file's calendar?

The problem seems to be with the DESIGN of the calendar. THe first column has some empty dates listed.. And that is why it is corrupting the calendar.

If you create a calendar just with startdate in first col and enddate in second col then the calendar doesn't behave weirdly

Check it out.

So we might have to refine the formula to remove the nulls and build a new calendar view.

OK

I have noticed that it only seems to be the 31 day and the 2 day view. The 2 day view shows the same day twice, the 31 show the wrong day eg Monday 15 shows a Tuesday 15

I have changed the 1st column to Startdate and 2nd to EndDate and checked the Calendar.I am still experiencing the same problem.

Bizarre
