When I'm viewing the first week of a month in my calendar and that week
includes days from the previous month, when I click on the Previous Month
arrow in the date navigator the navigator skips two months.

For example, June 1st 2009 is a Monday. With show work week selected, the
Date Navigator indicates that week is June 2009. When I click previous
month, the Date Navigator jumps back to April 2009, skipping over May.

I've noticed this also occurs when I have the first full week of May select
(3rd-9th), showing full week or work week, using the Previous Month arrow in
the Date Navigator jumps back to March. Furthermore, if I click and hold on
the Month name to get the drop list of months and I select April 2009, the
Date Navigator jumps back to March instead.

Its a feature - the previous and next month buttons in the nav pane move 30
days - with the approx same period selected. Its really only 4 weeks
between the selections but because the first week in june includes days in
May and may 1st is late in the week, it jumps back to the end of april.

My tips this week dealt with this and similar tricks -

2007.

This is a bug. If the UI says June 2009 and I click to go to the previous
month and end up in April, that is a bug.

It is not moving 30 days. 30 days before May 31st would still be May 1st.
It is also not moving 4 weeks as that would put it at May 3rd (there are 4.4
weeks in May).

Even if there is a logical reason why it is moving back two months, it is
still a bug. If I'm in June and want to see May, I have to click back once
to go to April and then forward once to go to May.

Thanks,
Wes
