I have a client that has his outlook calendar filled with birthdays of

clients, friends, and family. He has each one of them set to recurr on its

respective day of the year with a no-end date setting. Now, the start time of

each appointment(event/Birthday) is automatically set to 12:00 a.m. with a 15

minute standard reminder. The client synchronizes through exchange to his

Windows Mobile device all of these calendar events and settings. The problem

is that 15 minutes before midnigh he has his phone reminding him that a

birthday is comin up and it is waking him up in the middle of the night;

thiking that it is something important.

I would like to go ahead and change all of these start time to be 8:00 a.m.

the day of the event with a routine instead of manually going in to each

event, which are hundreds, and changing the setting.

This is the typical subject of the Event "Today is John Does Birthday"

Can anyone lead me in the right direction and assist with this issue.

Regardless, try reviewing the example here and let me know if you need any

clarification or further assistance:
