The user was having a problem with his Microsoft Outlook 2003 in that every time he adds an appointment to his calendar and saves it, the item displays as the date/time that he saved it, not the actual date/time of the future appointment.  
1. tried to repair just outlook
2.I tried to repair the entire office suite
3.I tried installing a different copy of Office from a disc I had here in the office after cleaning out all MSOffice entries in the registry
4.I have been through all the settings in Microsoft Office Help
5.I have been through Microsoft.com looking for the answer and found none
6.I reimaged the entire computer, built it back up and the issue still persists
I don't know how else I can troubleshoot this issue.  Can anyone assist me in resolving this very annoying  outlook bug?

Sorry, I ran the tool, then followed the instructions for it, but placing test appointments in the calender for 2 weeks from now still display on the calender as todays date at the time the entry was created.  I wish it was such a quick fix, I literally have tried everything I can get My hands on.  Any other suggestions?

Make sure that you have the right Time Zone on outlook, and the PC's clock, also make sure "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes" checked.

On outlook:
Tools>Options>Calendar Options>Time Zone

I wasn't previously aware that there was a specific time zone option for outlook, but after reviewing these settings, The time zone as well as Auto adjust for daylight savings time options are both set correctly.
