I am running Outlook 2007 on a Windows 7 machine. I notice that, first, when I hit the tab key going into the Time entry, it does not highlight so I can just type. I have to delete what is there and type the time. If I then hit the tab key instead of clicking using the mouse, it changes the date to 12/30/1899. Interestingly, this only happens when I am in the Calendar portion of Outlook. If I am in Contacts or Mail and select New Appointment from the File menu, I get the time highlighted and can tab out of the time area without the date changing. Once I move into the Calendar, double clicking on a particular date or clicking on the New Appointment causes this problem.

Any ideas for me?

Thanks.

Cathy

Are you using a custom appointment form? Any addins?

Does it work correctly if you use safe mode? To open Outlook in Safe mode: Close Outlook then hold Ctrl as you click on the Outlook icon. You'll get a message asking if you want to start in Safe mode. Click Ok.

I am using a custom form because I wanted the default for free/busy to be free. I was told the only way to do this was to edit the form which I did. Any idea what I need to do to fix this?

Thanks!

It may not be the form causing the problem. Test it with the default form and see if it works correctly. That will tell us if its the form or not.
