All Day Event - Show time as busy, VBA
Posted on 2006-10-31
I've been bashing my head against this wall all day, hopefully someone else will know of an easy way.
In Outlook 2003, when you tick the "All day event" box, the "Show time as" dropdown changes from Busy to Free. We would like to have the time remain as Busy when the box is ticked, but be able to be changed to Free. Desired behaviour is: Create new appointment, time is Busy. Tick All Day Event, time remains Busy. Change time to Free, All Day Event remains ticked.
I know there'll be some VBA involved, but my pathetic attempts seem to lock the dropdown at Busy, remove the checkmark, and various other unwanted effects. I'm not sure if I'm putting the code in the wrong place, or using the wrong properties, or something like that, but would really appreciate a pointer in the right direction.
