Error Message - "Unsupported Repeat Pattern"

I have a recurring appointment setup in Outlook 2003 with a repeat pattern of "first weekday of every month". When I synch to my Zire72, the following shows up in the HotSynch Log: "The repeating appointment titled Run Financial Reports beginning 04/01/2005 07:00:00 AM cannot be converted for use on the Handheld. Please edit the appointment in Outlook and re-synchronize (unsupported repeat pattern)." ==================== I understand the error message, but am at a lost to comprehend why such a simple repeat pattern is _not_ supported. Anyone know of any workarounds?

Re: Error Message - "Unsupported Repeat Pattern"

I think the message means what it says. You will have to setup these events manually as individuals to get this event to synch. The message is literally telling you that this repitition style is supported by Outlook but not by the Calendar in your handheld. Another way to go might be to use Chapura PocketMirror conduits instead. It may be more forgiving and be able to deal with this event type. This will cost you however to find out.

My Dell Axim X5 pocket PC reverts to wrong date


Duh... I figured out that my PC had the date set a month ahead! Not sure how that happened. The Axim was dutifully synching up w/ the wrong date, and so the November appointments didn't register. Thanks for checking.

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments


Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=290301 Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.

Override


What you're talking about is what is called a "collision" when it comes to syncing devices. You use the options in the hotsync manager to decide how to handle collisions.

Open Palm Desktop.
Go to Hotsync->Custom
Pick the outlook calendar conduit
Select if you want to synchronize intelligently, have outlook overwrite the handheld, or have the handheld overwrite outlook.

Typically if the treo detects both records on outlook and on the treo, and you've set it to synchronize intelligently, it will make dupliate records and post a message at the end of the hotsync operation.

Unresolved Items when synching


Try the following.... Open Active sync on your PC. Double Click on Calendar. Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments. SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ) Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments. SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)
