When you import a Microsoft Schedule+ 7.0 (SCD) file containing an appointment in a non-US time zone into Microsoft Outlook 97, the appointment may be off by one hour when viewed in a US time zone.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Outlook 97. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

  1. Create an appointment in Schedule+.
    1. In Schedule+, click Options on the Tools menu.
    2. On the Time Zone tab, click a non-US time zone on the Primary time zone list.
    3. Click to select, "Adjust for day light savings time."
    4. Create an appointment on a date that will be in Standard Time.
    5. Close Schedule+.
  2. Import the SCD file into Outlook.
    1. In Outlook, click Import and Export on the File menu.
    2. Click to select, "Import from Schedule+ or another program or file," then click Next.
    3. Click Schedule+ 7.0 then click Next.
    4. Type the name or Browse to the SCD file then click Next.
    5. Click to select, Import <filename>.scd (Appointments) into the Calendar then click Finish.
