When you create a full-day event in Calendar, you may receive the following message when you tap OK to save the event:

Enter a valid time.

When you tap OK to clear the message, there is no place on the General tab to edit the time, and you cannot finish creating the appointment.


This behavior can occur if you entered an invalid or negative number for the Starts or Ends time while the Full-Day Event check box was cleared. The Starts and Ends boxes are available only when the Full-Day Event check box is not selected.


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Full-Day Event check box to clear it.
  2. Change the Starts or Ends time to a valid number.
  3. Click the Full-Day Event check box to select it again, and then close the appointment.


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Even though the Starts and Ends times are not visible when you select the Full-Day Event check box, they are not ignored by Calendar.
