    I am using Microsoft Outlook 98. Holidays were not added to calendar year 2001 or later. I went back and added holidays and it just repeated them for each of the years prior to 2001. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Okay, Technet still hasn't gotten it together--their links never work anymore. Here's what the article states:

    OL98: How to Add and Delete Holidays in the Calendar (Q180877)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The information in this article applies to:


    Microsoft Outlook 98


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    SUMMARY
    In the Calendar, you can add and delete country-specific holidays.



    MORE INFORMATION

    Add Holidays to the Calendar
    To add holidays to the Calendar, follow these steps:
    On the Tools menu, click Options


    On the Preferences tab, click Calendar Options and then click Add Holidays.


    Click to select the appropriate country, and click OK.


    If you have already added a country's holidays, you will see a check next to the country name. If you try to add the same country again, you receive the following error message:
    Holidays for <country> are already installed. Do you want to install them again?
    If you click Yes, the holidays will install a second time and you will see duplicate holiday entries.
    To Remove Holidays from the Calendar
    To remove holidays from the Calendar, follow these steps:
    Open your Calendar and on the View menu point to Current View and click Events.


    Click the Location column heading to sort the list of holidays by country.


    Click to select the first holiday you want to delete.


    Hold down SHIFT and click the last holiday you want to delete.


    Press DELETE to remove all the selected holidays from your Calendar.

    I had a similar problem with Outlook 98. But in my case Outlook 98 added holidays through 2001, but no later. Reloading the holidays as suggested by Dreamboat does not solve the issue. It seems odd that I have the 2001 holidays and for you it only added through 2000. That would suggest the program has the algorithm loaded somewhere but that there might be some other place in the program where Outlook may allow you to specify the duration of years that you want holidays loaded. It is not in the options dialog box. I haven't figured it out yet and I'm surprised that more people haven't reported this problem. AW
