Outlook Reminders

My client has Office 2010 French on Windows 7 French.  The reminder window is not sorted in any way that would make any sense.  I have created a list based on the order I see the reminder with various information regarding the appointment:
Description          Deadline                Date            Hours               Reminder
Call                        21 hours                Nov. 19       11:30 to 12      15 minutes
Conference          21 hours                Nov. 19       11:30 to 12      15 minutes
Filing                      12 days                  Dec. 2          9 to 12             2 weeks
Meeting                 1 day 23 hours     Nov. 18        9 to 5              15 minutes
Training                 1 day 8 hours       Nov. 19        All day             18 hours
Meeting                 1 day 8 hours       Nov. 9          All day             1 day
Lunch                     1 day 19 hours    Nov. 18        12:30 to 2       1 day

I tried the /cleanreminders and /resetfolders switches without any effect.  I also tried /firstrun and I get an error indicating "in French" that the switch is wrong.

I also did a repair on Outlook

Any idea on how I can sort the reminders back in order

Thanks

How do the reminders show in OWA? If the problem is in OWA as well then you might want to run calendar repair assistance (for Exchange 2010) or move the mailbox to a different DB and check for any corruption

Actually, I did not try with OWA, but I did create the profile on another computer and I get the exact same order
However, I just reread the post by btdownloads72014 and it does make sense
Thank you for your help
