How do I set in Outlook 2007 Calendar work week to end after midnight?

There are several users that work the overnight shift, and now they are require to specify in Outlook 2007 (Exchange 2007 backend) their work week. The Start Time is 11:00 PM and their End Time is 7:00 AM, after specifying the time, they are encountered with: The end date you entered occurs before the start date error message. How can a user specify their end time to be afer midnight?

They just need to change the End Time's date to the next day.

Firemanf29, did you try the problem using your system? What results did you get, cause there is no Next day end time in my Outlook 2007 Version. (SP2)

Firemanf29, that's for creating new appointment / adding a calendar entry, my question is regarding their work week hours, in Outlook go to Options - Calendar - Calendar Options. For Start Time fill in 11:00 PM, and for End Time specify 7:00 AM (or anything after 12:00 AM) after clicking OK, the error comes up "The End date you entered occurs before the start date" I don't know if I was clear enough about the setting up the Calendar Work Week settings, but this is what I'm looking for.

This issue is " By Design". I have tested this out in Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 as well. You will keep on getting error. The issue remains not resolved and i dont think that there is fix for this.

That's what I was not hoping to find, has someone called into Microsoft and review how to get around it?

hbaum:  You can accomplish the same goal by having each user create a calendar entry Starting at 11:00 PM, Ending at 7:00 AM, Weekly for M-F.  Outlook will split the entry into 2 entries and place on teh appropriate day.  See image.

Additional suggestions that we do:  
1. Set the reminder option to none
2. Set a specific Category Color not used for any other Calendar items.
