Hi,

We have a web application that has a calendar that sends out icalendar links when things are added to the calendar. We have a particular ics that whenever it is opened in Outlook 2003, the the start and end time are correct. However, when this same ics is opened in Outlook 2007 or 2010, the time is off by 30 mins. When you edit the ics using notepad, the code looks correct. I am not sure where the failure is. Here is the code on the ICS:

--------------
BEGIN:VCALENDAR
VERSION:2.0
PRODID:-//Numara Software, Inc.//FootPrints Calendar//EN
METHOD:REQUEST
BEGIN:VEVENT
DTSTART:20101026T183000Z
DTEND :20101026T190000Z
SUMMARY:AD email address field to lower case
DESCRIPTION:
UID:CALP3I162

DTSTAMP:20101026T103914
SEQUENCE:1288107554
CLASS:pUBLIC
ORGANIZER:MAILTO:ignore@xbzvdrg.com
BEGIN:VALARM
TRIGGER:pT15M
ACTION:DISPLAY
DESCRIPTION:Reminder
END:VALARM
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

--------------------
As you can see, the time for the date start and end are for 1:30CST and 2:00CST. However, when you open it in Outlook 2007 or 2010, the end time is 2:30 CST. In Outlook 2003, it is correct.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi,

The problem is caused by the code "DTEND :20101026T190000Z". There should no space between DTEND and time.

Thanks! I believe that was the issue. I will have the vendor look into this issue.
