Hi Everyone,

Is it possible NOT to have Birthday Calendar events created based on the Birthday date in Contacts in Outlook 2010? I couldn't find any options for this.

Thanks a lot

When a contact has a birthday (or anniversary), outlook will automatically create birthday events on your default calendar. See http://www.slipstick.com/contacts/addbirthdays.asp for utilities that can add the events if you imported contacts.




It will not add them to a special birthday calendar - it will use the default calendar.

thank you for your reply, though my question was: Is there a way (maybe Registry tweak or app) to force Outlook NOT to include these events in the calendar?

thnx

Oh, sorry about that - no, you can't, short of not adding dates to the b-day and ann. fields. Put the dates in the notes field instead.
