Can't change due date without changing start date & vice versa

Post by SkI » Thu, 12 Jan 2006 04:32:02


MS Outlook 2002 - When I change "Due date" to "None" Outlook re-sets "Start
date" to "None." When I change "Start date" to yesterday Outlook re-sets
"Due date" to the same date (yesterday). What causes this? How can I fix it
so I have control and am able to set both dates to the dates I want?

1) If Due date has a date in it Start date can say none, but if start date
has a date, due must also.
2) you can use the drop down or type shortcuts in the field - 7d in the due
date = 7 days from now and 11 in the start field = 1/11/2006. if you are
still having problems, try entering the dates backwards - start date, then
type over the due date. (Shift+Tab to reverse direction if you are using Tab
to move around.)

Well, that kind of helps. What I've found is that if I click the "drop down"
arrow and try to pick a date from the calendar, Due Date forces Start Date to
change and vice versa. However, if I type a date in, I can type whatever
dates I want. So, it's a little more typing and a lot less frustrating.
Thanks for guiding me to a solution.

Also, I cannot choose "None" as a Due Date without Outlook also setting the
Start Date to "None"
