Out of nowhere, my Office 2002 calendar, full month view, is now showing appointments using a bar with a little clock face on it, and the bar extends over the date to the right, as well as the date of the appointment..

How might I make this go away, and revert to just showing the little bar that fits within the date of the event?

Thanks!

While viewing your calendar in month view, right click in the calendar.  Select "Other Settings".  This will bring up a Format Day/Week/Month View window. In the Section for Month (and possibley Week), remove the check mark from "Show time as clocks".  Save and exit.  This should remove the clocks.

Thanks for input.   I found the settings, however, they didn't remove the clock entries.   I suspect that because it happened out of the blue something went whammy during a system shutdown or something.    It happened to a bunch of "all day meetings" that are now 12:00 - 1:00 meetings....so some sort of internal jiggle happened.  I may have to just adjust the ones that are whacked...I've added a few new ones (with the correct settings) and they seem ok.

I found an article on this board that recommended resetting Outlook's views, and here's the link:

Hopefully that helps fix your issue.

Thanks for input.  Had no effect on existing "funny" entries.   However, new entries are ok, so hopefully I'm past this problem (except for the slow accumulation of deferred maintenance on my gradually gumming up XP/Office installation.... :-)
