I was running B2TR of Office 2007 and kept getting an error whenever the
"Change Calendar Time Zone" pops up. Outlook shut down, I clicked to report
the error, and then Outlook started back up. The dialog pops up again and I
go through the whole routine once more.

So I upgraded to the latest (Trial) version of Office 2007, and I'm still
getting the same error. It's a 0xc0000005 in Outlook.exe.

I've run a scan on my .pst files, and there were some errors - but these
have now been repaired. I'm still getting the error!

HELP! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

When I opened Outlook this morning, I got a pop-up message entitled
"Change calendar time zone" saying that "a change to '(GMT-08:00)
Pacific Time (US & Canada)' has occurred." and that appointments,
etc., have been updated.

What the heck is going on?

Using Outlook 2000 on Windows 2000

After updating to Office 2007, Outlook has displayed a dialog box for two of
our users with the title:
"Change Calendar Time Zone"

containing the text:
"Updating 'Mailbox - ' from '(GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US &
Canada)' to '(GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)(Update)'

What is this? Why is it updating to the same time zone it is updating from?
Explaination Please.

Thank You

Hi,

I've got one user for whom the Change Calendar Time Zone process keeps
getting stuck. This is the Outlook Time Zone Update Tool found here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e34 3a233-b9c8-4652-9dd8-ae0f1af62568&DisplayLang=en

I've tried it on different workstations, it always gets stuck somewhere in
the middle of updating 2300 appointments.

We're using Outlook 2003 on XP Pro, SP 2 workstations that are fully
patched. Small Business Server 2003 (Exchange Server 2003).

Many thanks in advance,

Matthew

I continually get a "Change Calendar Time Zone" popup. I bought my notebook
in Perth Western Australia in May 2007 with Vista 2007 Home Premuim and
Office 2007. I have now moved to the UK and I have altered my timezone and
region. This is similar to a previous thread but I do not want to add a
"DisableTimeZoneAutoPrompt" registry entry because something still thinks I
am in Perth and I would like to change everything to the UK.

Any other ideas?

Change calendar time zone box pops up in outlook 2007.
A change to GMT + 08:00 Perth has occured(appears in box)
Appointments,meetings and reminders will be updated....ect
Select time zone in which you are usually located(select option)
I am in the same time zone,so I select GMT + 08:00 Perth
Next
Box appears saying appointments found in Personal Folders.Click OK to update
appointments.
I click OK.
Updates Personal Folders (GMT +8:00 Perth to GMT +8:00 Perth) but comes up
with failures for all appointments.
Is annoying as this box appears randomly and must be processed before I can
continue with Office Outlook 2007.
How do I fix this?
Thanks

We just migrated our users from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007. I have a user
that will just sitting at her machine with Outlook open (not doing anything),
and suddenly the follow popup message shows:

Some appointments and meetings may not appear on your Calendar at the
correct time if you cancel this process. To return to this tool, click
Options, click Calendar Options, click Time Zones, and then click Change
Calendar Time Zone. Are you sure you want to cancel?

She had about 12 appointments that wanted to be updated, but they were all
from 2005 and before. I verified that her time zone was correct, and just
disregarded the message. However, now later on in the day, she's receiving
the error message again. What could be causing this?

I am using office 2003. and I greated at the biginning of the year a set of
recurring appointments that will span the whole year. the in Montreal time
zone (GMT -4). Now when the daylight saving period is over and now it became
(GMT -5) microsoft office assumes I have travelled to another time zone and
adjusted all these appointment to reflect the old time zone of the
appointment. (example: my class is from 5:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m every day. Now
microsoft office made it 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m with the assumption that I
have changed my time zone.)

The solution required is :
1- fix the appointment for the same time zone with daylight saving on or off.
2- give me the option to update the recurrency time zone and appointment
time and resave it.

On the Microsoft Office Outlook Calendar, when I moved and changed the  time zone, all of my yearly appointments (like birthdays, anniversaries) come up as 2 day appointments. Some other appointments simply shifted to a different day and a couple disappeared completely.

Is there a way to fix this?  Other than re-entering everything??

Also, is the time zone on the computer itself directly connected to Outlook?  I noticed when I reset the Outlook time zone back to the original one, the main time "reset itself".. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

I did a bit of checking and couldn't find anything that matched what i was looking for.

I have a user with a peculiar calendar issue. We run Exchange 2003 and the user has office 2010. It's a recent problem.

It's quite simple. He enters an appointment in his calendar and once it is saved it shows as an hour ahead in his calendar view and when he opens the item it shows an hour behind! At no point does it show the correct time that he used to create the appointment. When I view his calendar from my end ( pacific time zone and he is Alaska time zone)all appointments look correct. When he views the calendar items on his iphone or ipad they look correct. I checked the Outlook time zone, calendar time zone and the computer time zone and all are set to Alaska. Al his past items seem to be correct, it seems to be only his new items. I don't have a lot of experience with outlook 2010 but i check all the usual spots.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks in advance

Outlook suddenly locked up & would not shut down. Got the program not
responding message & replied close. After rebooting & re-opening I had
little clock faces allover my calender. I just found the following old July
'05 thread. I also had just changed the time zone a little earlier. The
work around link that the answerer gave says "The Requested Web Page is Not
Available". My calendar is a real mess & to manualy correct will take
forever. Any sugestions? Thank you !!

It means that when you changed the time zone, all of your all-day events were
changed to events that span two days in the new time zone. This is a
limitation of Outlook and the workaround is listed at

OK, but who goes and figures out that if I have a 10am meeting in Sao Paulo
next week, but I'm currently in London then I should put the meeting down for
1pm so taht when I get to Sao Paulo and change my clock (so i don't have to
do teh calculation every time I look at the clock on the screen) it matches
up? Surely it makes more sense not to change the bloody appointment time at
all??

There is nothing that needs fixing - this is how all email clients work -
they display the times in "local" time based on your time zone setting. This
allows your appointments to move with you. You can either export the times
before changing the time zone, then import, or use outlook's dual time zone
feature if the change is temporary.

BTW - this issue is documented at both slipstick.com and outlook-tips.net,

I have put in a lot of all day events in my calendar including US and
Canadian holidays put in by Outlook. I frequently change time zones. When I
change time zones the event stretches into a previous or following day and is
no longer an all day event. It puts in start times and end times to
correspond to 12 AM in the original time zone. However when I change the time
zone back I find that the event does not return to its original times and
remains stretched. The more often I change time zones the more days it tends
to stretch over. How to I prevent this from happening?

I think All Day Events are not handled correctly in Outlook. I have
birthday, anniversary, and other All Day Events in my calendar. When I
travel and change the time zone on my computer, all appointments, including
All day Events, are adjusted to the new time zone. This means that these All
Day Events overlap over two days--not very appropriate for birthdays,
anniversaries, and the like. My recomendation is to not adjust All Day
Events for the new time zone.

I live on the east coast and at some point when setting up my computer, it
was set to Pacific Time...3 hours earlier.

As a result, all my email and communications show my time being off.

How do I change my computer time zone, and not have to re-enter all my
appointments in my calendar?

Messaging Environment:

Exchange 2003, Outlook 2003 with latest Service Packs.

This is the error message I got when I tried to accept changes to a New Time
Proposed invite for an Executive whose calendar I'm managing. It would not
let me change the date/time of the invite.

I went back again to try and accept, etc., but nothing happens when I hit
the accept button.

Hello,
we have Exchange 2007 and outlook 2003
the server is located at the main office in time zone: (GMT-03:00) Brasilia.
we have several remote offices with a different time zone (i.e. London time).

Anyone (clients) requesting a “Read Receipt” from our remote offices employees, will receive a response with a Brasilia time stamp:
"Your message was read on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 12:42:00 AM (GMT-03:00) Brasilia"
how can i remove the time zone from the massage, or show a global time zone without effecting the local office users.
i guess changing the time zone on the EX server will change all meetings / calendar, and other issues?
thanks for any advice

I am in need of some of your expert help if possible?

In a nutshell I have a user that had her time zone set to Canada (we are in the UKŕ donĆt ask), she was on a workgroup previously so this went unnoticed. Now her machine has had to join our domain and her time zone changed to the correct UK. This has thrown all her calendar entries out by the time difference, and there are about 1000 of them (she is presidents PA).

Is there a simple way to change all here calendar entries back to the correct time slots other than changing each one individually?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am using Outlook 2007 on a vista machine, and since just recently, every
time I open outlook I get a message saying that
"A Change to '(GMT +08:00) Perth' has occurred. Appointments, meetings, and
reminders will be updated to reflect this change. ... Select the Time zone in
which you are usually located" and then there is a drop down box to select
the appropriate time zone.

So I select +8 GMT Perth - where I live and click OK

Then the computer goes through a list of appointments, and every item comes
up with an error message saying that "the time for this appointment cannot be
modified"

If I open the log - I get a very long list of all the failed attempts. They
all look basically like this, though with different name and date details (of
course):

Type: Appointment
ID:
040000008200e00074c5b7101a82e0080000000010fa2181fc6ec7010000 000000000000100000009a7a4cd3c6e5b74aa83928e0aa046feb
Subject: New years day
Old Start Time: Sunday, 31 December 2006 4:00 PM
New Start Time: Sunday, 31 December 2006 4:00 PM
Old End Time: Monday, 1 January 2007 4:00 PM
New End Time: Monday, 1 January 2007 4:00 PM
Recurring: Yes
Result: Error () (0x8000101E, 0x80004005, 0x0000100B)

This is becoming very annoying, especially since I don't recall changing the
time zone, or anything like that.

Even more annoying, if I open one of the appointments in question, then and
go to adjust the recurance pattern, or change the time zone. I get a message
that says "The operation filed" and I am unable to make any changes.

Further, some of the appointments, If I look at the time zone, it starts at
+8GMT Perth, yet finishes at +8 GMT Beijing ...

I don't even recall making any changes to my computer at the time these
error messages started appearing.

Any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Alastair

My mananager changes time zones all the time and she has MANY all day events
on her calendar. It is really frusterating when the all day events go into
the next day or start the day before (showing up on 2 different days). Is
there a way to fix this?? She would like them to stay at the top as an all
day event in only ONE Day - they day of the event, no matter what time zone
she is in.

PLEASE HELP!! Does anyone know how to fix this???

I use my calendar as I imagine most people do, to write down events and plan
events. I keep the calendar so I can go back and see when something
happened. I also add notes as I go along so I can keep track of events and
changes, so it is important that not only are the dates and times correct,
but that I also do not loose the notes section.

I recently changed time zones, and would like to change the time zone in my
computer. After trying this using various methods, and searching these
forums, it becomes obvious that this is not an easy task.

I tried to use the time zone adjustment tool from Microsoft, but for some
reason, it only seems to update active appointments (those with reminders).
The remaining appointments, past and future, simply do not get updated. It
baffles me why Microsoft would provide a tool that only works partially...

Now my appointments are in a combined mess, I can not go back or forward in
time zones to fix them.

I also tried to export the data to a Excel file, change the time zone, and
re-import the data. While this does fix the times, the notes sections
becomes corrupted. Apparently there is some type of limitation on the field
length for the character field.

Are there any ideas? Or even a third party program available that will fix
this issue? A program that basically performs the task the Microsoft program
claims to (but doesn’t ) would be great.

I have detailed calendar/appointment information dating back to 2003 that I
need to keep handy. I need the appointment times to stay fixed, no matter
what time zone I'm in.

Formerly, I used Palm Desktop and a Palm z100. Palm Desktop does not (I
assume) assign time zones to appointments, because when I would change my OS
time zone, my appointment times in Palm Desktop (and on my Palm) were
unaffected.

I switched from Palm Desktop software to Outlook (still using the Palm)
while living in the EST zone. I'm guessing that Outlook stamped all of my
appointments as being in EST when I first synced my Palm with Outlook,
because that was time zone on my OS when I did that.

Then I moved to the CST zone. I updated my OS time, and Outlook moved all of
my appointment times back by one hour. I was still using a Palm, so I worked
around this by: 1) setting my OS and Palm times to EST, syncing to make sure
everything was correct, changing my OS and Palm times to CST, and syncing
such that my Palm data replaced the data in Outlook. Result: the hours of the
appointments as I looked at them in Outlook were unchanged (a 2pm appt still
reads as a 2pm appt), but Outlook (I assume) stamped all of those calendar
entries as being in the CST zone instead.

Now I am using a PDA phone. So when I travel to other time zones, (I'm in
EST now), the phone time/time zone automatically updates itself.

I HAVE figured out that I can change the time on my computer without
changing the time zone, so, in effect, I can look at the correct clock time
and the correct appointment times in Outlook on my laptop, even though the
time zone on my OS is actually an incorrect CST.

BUT, my phone time automatically updates itself. So even when I use the
preceding workaround (the Frankenstein CST that allows me to look at correct
appt times), the result is that my appts show up as one hour later on my PDA,
because my OS/Outlook says they are CST appts and my phone is in EST.

I NEED to be able to change the time zone in my OS (and therefore Outlook,
if I understand correctly) without changing my appt times. There are about
7000 appointments in my Outlook calendar, and I can't go back and change them
all from CST to another time zone even once, let alone every time I travel
for work.

Any help will be MUCH appreciated.
