Schedule+ Time Zone Transition Dates Incorrect [Q175934]

This article was previously published under Q175934

The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Schedule+ 7.5
Microsoft Schedule+ 7.0

SYMPTOMS Appointments between the last Sunday in September and the last Sunday in October may appear one hour off from the expected time. This occurs in specific time zones that have changed the transition dates for entering and leaving Daylight Savings Time.

The same symptoms can occur during the period from the first Sunday in March to the last Sunday in March.

Schedule+ uses an internal table to store transition times for each individual time zone. When a governing body decides to change transition dates, the tables no longer agree with the dates observed in the time zone.

STATUS Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Schedule+ version 7.0 and 7.5.

For Schedule+ 7.0, this problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 97 Service Release 2 (SR-2).

For Schedule+ 7.5, this problem was corrected in Microsoft Exchange Service Pack 2 - Client update.

For additional information about SR-2, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: Q151261 OFF97: How to Obtain and Install MS Office 97 SR-2. [External link to MS KnowledgeBase. I.e. this link may die -- Remark CB]

Timezones affected by timezone transition changes include:
[GMT + 1.00] Berlin, Stockholm, Rome, Brussels, Vienna
[GMT + 1.00] Lisbon, Warsaw
[GMT + 1.00] Paris, Madrid
[GMT + 1.00] Prague
