Adding Fixtures to Outlook Calendar

Post by gman » Tue Jul 31, 2007 1:22 pm

Last season I did this the long way and typed all the dates in as new appointments in my calendar. Thought I'd share a better way. ;o)

It is documented my Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=161587 so you're not doing anything you're not supposed to.

Look for a file called outlook.txt or outlook.hol depending on your version of Outlook, it will be in Program Files\Microsoft Office. Mine was C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\1033 but you might need to do a search.

Open it with notepad or wordpad and paste the text below in red into the list, you'll see all the public holidays of [Algeria] in there, I put it before them.

Go into outlook, tools, options, calendar options, add holidays, tick 'Tigers Fixtures' (and any others holidays you want), then OK.

[Tigers Fixtures] 36

Note: The TBC fixtures will go in as the earliest of the dates provided, you'll need to update them in your calendar when the dates are confirmed.

You obviously do all this at your own risk, no comeback on me or the club - but it's fine, trust me I'm a programmer! :o?

I have used your tip for which I am very grateful, but I have modified it slightly for a different team and their fixtures.

All of the 2007 fixtures show no problem on Outlook, but for some reason the 2008 fixtures will not display. Are you having the same problem?

Yours Aye

RJ

This is a great idea... It doesn't work in Outlook 2007, because the format is different, but Im sure it will if you change it.

Cheers for the idea!

RWC on TV (Schedule) - I have used gman's technique on that

Post by A_Magna_Malc » Sat Aug 04, 2007 1:15 pm

Thanks gman, I converted the RWC schedule using 'your' technique in case anyone wants to add the RWC2007 to their Outlook calendar using your instructions in this post. Thanks for the tip. Malcolm

Here is the list for this season based on Saturday being the selected day for our games (I am the eternal optomist). Thanks again to Gman for the original post.

Tried and failed in Outlook 2007 (Vista). Kept denying me permission to save changes to the file, although I had changed the permissions for the folder away from read only (both forlder 1033 and Office12.

So, a nice idea but it didnt work for me... :smt011

This looks just the job.

May have saved me from a whole evening of tapping in fixtures.

Perhaps I will get to watch the season finale of Heroes before August after all!
