Hello,

I have successfully uploaded my list of calendar entries from outlook to excel.
I did this with the import function in Outlook.

The issue I have it setting the reminder to say 1 week and the other record at 2 days.
It always defaults to 15 min.  in both cases (see below)

in the column Reminder i have 1 week but Outlook doesnt recognize it.  


Reminder      Reminder on/off
1 week               TRUE
2 days               TRUE

How can I set the reminder to the above criteria?

there was someone with similar issue and he resolved it by himself.

i suggest you read this thread below until the end

http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/calendar-excel-outlook-reminder-off-field-doesnt-work-t3639784.html

his qoute at the end "I was playing around with this and finally discovered what was wrong. I went
into "Map Custom Fields" and the "Reminder On/Off" was not properly mapped.
Now that it is correctly mapped it works fine. I wonder why it wasn't right?
(I'm trying to remember if it even worked before and if IT had monkeyed with
something since then.)"
