Nokia/Outlook repeating appointment difficulty

  Widow's Son 13:17 19 Dec 2007

I work shifts in a 5 week repeating pattern. I have this set up in Outlook and it works fine. But when I sync my Nokia 6120 classic it will only put in the 1st 5 weeks and won't sync the rest. If you put the shifts on to the phone directly it is possible to put weekly appointment but not 5 weekly ones.

Is there a utility out there that will convert my Outlook repeating appointments into non repeating daily ones for say the next year?

Or does anybody have any other ideas?

I'm using Vista 64 bit & Outlook 2007.

Thanks in advance for any Help

On the Nokia PC Suite - Settings - Calendar to do tab allows you to set how long ahead it will update the phone's calendar. Make sure that you haven't got it limited to a short period.

This is on XP and Outlook 2003.

Cannot think of anything else.

Problem seems to be that the Nokia can't cope with items that repeat every 5 weeks (but does cope with weekly)

Thanks for trying though

Seems that it maybe a problem with PC Suite click here

You may get better help on the Nokia forum click here

Another thought - have you got the latest version of PC Suite?

Might just be one of those little annoyances I have to live with :(
