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 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?

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.
ok. Again thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

take care
