Hi there,

I've gotten into a problem with planning recurring meetings.

Problem goes like this:

Every 3rd thursday of a month I have a recurring meeting planned.
To prepare for this meeting I need to go thru some numbers, which is planned to happen mondays before the meeting - but here I cant put in a recurring meeting as every 3rd monday in a month isn't always going to be before my meeting.

How can I fix that?

Thanks in advance...

(sorry for the typo in headline its of course 3 days before)

You could use a macro to create individual events based on the "parent" but they would be individual appointments, not a recurring event. The only other option is to use 3rd monday and drag it to the correct date when its wrong (to create an exception). I'll have to look into creating the recurrence and exceptions by code - but it might be just as easy to move it as it comes up.
