Couple of 2007 Calendar questions

I've got a couple of things I want to resolve in Outlook 2007 calendar.

Firstly, the never ending display of Sat and Sun in whatever view I have up at the time, despite the fact that in a dialogue box relating to this, Sat & Sun is not checked and therefore, I would have thought, shouldn't be showing. I'm talking about my Outlook at work where it's absolutely a waste of time to show the weekends - I don't work weekends and would prefer the room for appointments not having it taken up by unnecessary weekends. Is there anything I can do about this??

Secondly, it's the issue of how the calendar displays appointments in week, dragged manually to show a fortnight, or monthly views. In each case, in other places where I've used Outlook, the depth of the appointment is relative to the length of the appointment thus a 30 min session will give you a fairly thin rectange, but a 3 hour appointment would extend down further and be a deeper, bigger box. (Hope that makes sense!). How can I get it to look like this. It's quite useless really to only be able to see the first 2 or 3 words of an appointment bearing in mind you have two lines to put appt information on when you create an appt - one for the title of the meeting, and a second line for the location - you can't even see the whole of the meeting name never mind the location and I need to see full details of the meeting. I'd also prefer it like I'm sure I've had it set up in Outlook before, so that the times go down the left and the appointment just sits in the appropriate part of the day to reflect the start and finish times. Again, this gives more room to display details about the appointment as opposed to showing the start/start and end times of the appointment, within the displayed appointment.

Can anybody help as I'm finding this really frustrating and can't seem to find a specific solution/set of instructions to follow to get it how I want it!!!

Thank you everyone.
Work week view is only available for the week view, not monthly view. Sorry.

On the second problem, what time scale do you use? That controls the size in the views where a day is in a column (either day or week views). Right click on the time scale to change it. The monthly calendar is one line per appointment.
