I just upgraded from 2003 to 2007 and appear to have lost a feature. I have two calendars, the primary one "Calendar" and a second one ("Time") I created myself where I track my time by inserting "appointments" that describe what I was doing during that hour. In 2003 when I insert an appointment in the Time calendar, it defaults to no reminder. In 2007, it uses my Reminder default of 15 minutes, which is not what I want. I tried designing a custom Appointment form for this calendar with Reminder set to "No", but even though it lets me change that value in the designer, it doesn't remember it when I save and reopen the form.

Any solution?

Yeah, beginning in Outlook 2007, reminders fire from other folders, so the reminder is set. It wasn't set in older versions because reminders wouldn't fire from non-default folders.


You'll need to use VBA to disable it on that calendar - i'll see if i can find a code sample.

Where would that VBA go? In the custom Form?
