Does anyone know how to set up outlook so that the UK public holidays actually show in the calendar, rather than in the events view? I have added the UK holidays by selecting in the tools/options/calendar options/add holidays.
Thanks VoG but I do not have an outlook.txt file, or a 1033 folder. I am using Office XP standard. I can see the holidays in outlook category view - view/current view/by category, but they do not appear on the pages of the diary, so I tend to make appointments on things like easter etc
After you add the holidays go to View\Current View and select Day/Week/Month and you should see the fixed holidays (New Years Day/Xmas Day etc. Holidays such as Good Friday/Easter Day are movable feasts IE they don't occur on the same day each year so they are not shown. I can't think of any way to show these.
thanks to you both, I can see the holidays, but they used to appear in the calendar. Now I can either view the calendar, or choose category view and see the bank holidays. What I want is to see the holidays in my day/week/month view.
thanks for your time
