Hi there and welcome
When you go to the day for this birthday in the calendar
do you see the birthday listed at the top?
ok, now when you double click it to open it
do you see reminder set, with 15 minutes before the appointment ?
ok, enable it please
this is why you dont get a notification
once enabled, it will work
how do you mean alert window?
it will only appear 15 min before the appointment
yes, they are disabled by default
do you want to enable them for all 2000?
yes, this is normal, as it is default
to enable all 2000 at one, do this
We’re going to create a custom view which reveals the Reminder Beforehand time and group this view by this field as well so we can easily change it for a lot of items at once.
You’ll now have a view that should more or less only display all the Birthdays (as it will also display other appointments with the subject set to Birthday). Since the appointments are grouped by the reminder time, it is easy to change all items after you have changed one.
yes, as i said it will be disabled by default....
when the reminder is set, it will go 15 minutes before the appointment
reminder doesnt work when recurrence is enable
i disable and it works fine,
when you set the reoccurance
which option did you do
once a year on this day?
under reoccurance options
i sent u image
did u get it?
yep, let me check it
reminder is none
you see it there?
that is why
no, i tried that, even i set it it doesnt appear in reminder window,
it appears when i remove the recuring
this way it become once day event only, and next year it wont remind me
ok, set it to a year
then close outlook
click start, type in
then check please
and all the birthday events when generated automaticly by adding birthday in vcard they have recorrance enable
ok let me try
yes they will have it enabled
nop no shange
ok, dis you install service pack 1 for office?
let me check
MSO it says
sorry not imo
ok, uninstall this please
do you know how?
un install sp2?
then it wont open excel password protacted files created by office 2010
so i have to install that
do you have excel password protected files?
as this reminder problem can be a bug from the SP
it wan the same before that i remember
are you sure it will work without SP?
you 100% sure this occured before installing SP2?
a lot of people have experienced this problem after SP2, so we need to rule it out
how is it in 2010?
is this feature works in 2010 ? do u know? if yes, i'll buy 2010
yes, but only the original
not after SP1
it also has the bug there
so if you upgrade
do not install SP1
before SP1 it does work
try this though
detect and repair
run this and test
how come outlook have this critical bug and there is no fix yet
sorry I dont know, as I cannot see the priority list for Microsofts bug fixing
possibly they have higher priority bugs to fix
how is it going?
test completed with no errors
i updated the office to 2010 and i still have the same issue
currunt version is 14.4760.1000
what should i do now?
