How to Hide Start Time and End Time for All Day Event in Sharepoint Calendar DispForm

Hi All, Currently, when I add my Calendar web part to my page it displays the date and time for start and end dates. How can I get my web part to hide the times and only show the start and end date when the All Day event box is checked?

Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

SharePoint 2007 + PowerPoint gives "Contacting the server for information" for a long time

I've never had this issue for but today all of a sudden I tried to open a PowerPoint document posted to a document library on our SharePoint 2007 site and it gave a message saying "Contacting the server for information" for a long time.  It eventually opened but not until after 5-10 minutes.  Does anyone know what might have caused this?  The file itself is pretty small, only 70KB, and as I said we haven't had this problem before.

SharePoint 2007 Calendar - add an event to a recurring meeting workspace

Hello all,

I was wondering if someone can answer this problem I am having. 

Simple Question: Are you able to add an additional event into a recurring event which is linked to a meeting workspace?

Long version:

I create an event in a calendar with the recurrence of every monday for the month. (4 dates lets say)  We have a special meeting to add to the meeting workspace, so I add an additional event in the calendar and try to add this date (15th lets say) to that previous meeting workspace series.

My problem is that the ability to add the new date (15th) to the series doesn't show me any options to add to that previous meeting workspace, I can only create a new meeting workspace.

My colleague who has used SharePoint 2003 at another workplace is 100% sure she could do this, however I am at a loss where SharePoint 2007 allows this functionality.

In a new calendar, I tested this theory by creating 3 events with recurring dates and creating an associated meeting workspace with each of them.  Not once did I get the option to add the event to another meeting workspace.  I added an event with no recurrence with an associated meeting workspace, the very next event could add to that meeting workspace which is what I want except to a recurring meeting workspace.

From my analysis, any event that has a recurring series

SharePoint 2007 - Calendar view of many teams



Many teams are using the SharePoint 2007 feature in my company.

My boss wants to see a view which shows him all the calendars.

Is it possible to create a calendar view which is an aggregate of multiple calendars?

I am using SharePoint 2007 enterprise.


Edit: I guess this feature is called the Calendar Overlay. (not sure though). How can I have this in 2007 environment?


Synchronize group calendar from Sharepoint 2007 (SBS Server 2008) using ActiveSync for mobile device


I've created a Public Folder Calendar on my Exchange Server that our Office Manager uses to inform all our partners and staff (small medical practice) of vacations, group meetings, etc.

I'd like to make this calendar available to mobile devices (1 Windows Mobile, 1 Blackberry, 3 iPhones). I know that individual user Exchange Calendars can sync, but I'm told Microsoft isn't making any effort to make this happen for Public Folder calendars because they're being deemphasized and will disappear in either the next or subsequent version of Exchange. There's a third party product that claims to do this (Outlook AddIn). Since the Public Folder Calendars are being de-emphasized in favor of the Sharepoint calendar, one would think that Activesync would be able to work with the SharePoint group calendar, but apparently that's not the case. Is my best bet still the Add to Outlook product from diditbetter.com?

Sharepoint 2010 Calendar Overlay with Exchange 2007

I'm trying to add calendar overlays in Sharepoint 2010 however the OWA URL's don't seem to work. Everytime I use the following url:




I get an 'Unexpected Error'. After checking through the logs, it seems to be an XML exception.

System.Xml.XmlException: '=' is an unexpected token. The expected token is ';'. Line 1, position 520

The URL's that I'm using were taken from Technet, so I can only assume that they're correct. When I put the same URL's in the brow

Configure My Calendar in SharePoint 2003 and Exchange 2007

We have upgraded Exchange to 2007.  I change the URL on the "My Calendar" page to read http://<server>/owa.  It brings back 404 - File or directory not found.  I have even tried http://<server>/owa/?cmd=contents&module=calendar&view=monthly which works from IE.  It tells me invalid characters.  We will not be upgrading to Sharepoint and Exchange 2010 until second half of next year.  What am I doing wrong?

SharePoint Calendar and Access 2007



I have a SharePoint site with a SharePoint calendar that I am trying to develop an Access 2007 front end for so people can Add/Edit the events on the calendar through Access.  It takes about 30 secs to connect to the sharepoint site and I am trying to find a work around utilizing Access. 

I clicked on 'Open with Access' from the actions button on the calendar and created a linked table to my SharePoint calendar .  I have created an add/edit form within Access 2007.  My problem comes when trying to connect to the SharePoint calendar table from within an Access form to update the SharePoint calendar linked table.  If I open the SharePoint calendar table, I can edit the individual records and then recync.  I was trying to automate the process by having the users edit/add events to the form but when I try to update the SharePoint Calendar, I get an error message stating Access can't find the SharePoint Calendar.  I can't even find the SharePoint calendar table listed in the Linked Table Manager.  So this tells me that maybe I can't automate the process due to this very fact. 

I am looking for some solutions/answers.  I keep reading different books on both SharePoint and Access but no one seems to have crossed this bridge before. 

Thank you

Write Custom WebParts for SharePoint 2007

The popularity of SharePoint Portal Server 2003 led Microsoft to tightly integrate the next SharePoint version, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, with its ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart framework. This tight integration enables the ASP.NET and SharePoint developer to do a number of things that previously weren't possible

SharePoint 2007 Workflows - Things to Consider Before You Start

SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) utilizes the Workflow Foundation (WF) to enable workflows on lists and content types. But before you start doing cartwheels there are few things you should know before you get started. The experiences I'll be discussing are not from book smarts but from building real MOSS solutions that are in production today.

Writing Custom Web Parts for SharePoint 2007

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, SharePoint 2007 is built on top of ASP.NET 2.0, which means you can now use ASP.NET 2.0 features (Forms Authentication, Master Pages, Membership, Site Navigation, New Data Controls, etc) when building SharePoint sites. This is true for both the new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 version (which will be a free download) as well as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (which costs money).
