Reminder (Off / On) Link With Reminder Data/Time

I'm using 2003. Created a custom task form and using the Reminder and

the Reminder Time fields. If I delete the date and time values, these

fields display "None" and the Reminder is unchecked. However, if I

uncheck the Reminder, it does not change the Reminder Date / Time

fields to "None".

I also notice if I change the date and then change the time, it

changes the date back to today's date.

Obviously I'm missing something. Do I need to create a custom field

for the "time" field.

Thank you.

If the Reminder box is unchecked, why do you care about the values of the

Reminder Date / Time fields?

I would suggest that you use two custom fields to gather the date and time

information for the reminder. Then take the date from one and the time from

the other and combine them to store in the actual ReminderTime property.

Sue:

Thank you for your help. The reason for setting the values of the

Reminder Date / Time fields to "None" is for sorting. I include the

Reminder time in the view and sort for things coming due. Since there

is data in the field (even if the reminder is turned off), those items

get sorted with the other items that also have dates / times but the

reminder turned on.

If you want to set an Outlook date property to "None," use the value

#1/1/4501#.
