Outlook Calendar Revisited

Hi techies!

I'm having a problem with scheduling appointments in the calendar function.  
I know that they are scheduled, because they show up in the "Outlook Today"
view, and you can see the scheduled appointment in the "by category" view,
but the appointments are all on one day when in the calendar views.  However,
when you double click on any of the appointments to open it, you see the
correct scheduling information.  I have no filters on.  I have tried
archiving the files, deleting the user profile and re-creating it and detect
and repair outlook.  The last time I encountered this I migrated the user
from Office XP to 2003...and that "worked", however, now it is happening
again.  Has anyone run into this before?  How do you fix it?

Hi BodeTech,

Migrating from XP to 2003 , did you create the scheduling information again or you just imported the calendar information from XP to 2003.

Can you try creating them in a different month to see how it would behave ?

That did the same thing.  It put the entry on today at this time...though when I double click on the entry it shows Oct 20 as the scheduled date.

BodeTech,

Make sure to have a backup of all outlook data
go to start ----> run --> and give this
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE" /cleanreminders

Check if that helps

There could be other switches that can be used

The actual switch that I used was /cleanviews  That took care of everything instantly.  Apparently when I upgraded, there were some "views" that the user had or that were created by the import process...(originally from notes).

Thanks!
