How does Outlook calculate the weeknumbers?
In my part of the world, the first day of the week is monday.
Now if I look at the Outlook calender and browse towards januari 2013 I see
something strange:

The week from 31 dec. 2012 to 06 januari 2013 has weeknumber 53.

The following week however has weeknumber 2.
So where is weeknumber 1 of the year 2013?

Is this a bug???

regards,

Erik

on the numbering problem - week 1 is also week 53 or 54 of the previous
year. (which depends on your settings)

Are you looking at the main calendar or the navigation calendars? The month
calendar displays the number based on the first day of the week and since
Dec 31 is the first day when you start the week on monday, it continues
counting for 2012 (for the display number). The navigation calendars show
the correct week numbers and outlook corrects the week numbers based on the
rule in tools, options, calendar options when it gets to week two.

if you start the week on Sunday it numbers the weeks correctly.

Diane,

I am not sure we understand each other.
At least in my part of the world, we are currently in Week 53 of 2009
Next week is week nr. 1 of 2010. So week nr 1 is not the same week as week
nr. 53
This is IMO the correct behaviour.
In 2013 there is no week nr. 1.

IMO it has nothing to do with settings, as with the same settings, the
results differ for 2010 and 2013

regards,

Erik

I know what you are saying- I've seen similar issues before, where the
logic outlook uses to calculate something doesn't always show the expected
results in the view. The underlying data is correct, just the view is wrong.
It is correct on the Jan 2013 navigation calendar.
