OL2002: The Free/Busy Bar Incorrectly Displays Busy for the Whole Day

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you view a Calendar in the Day/Week/Month view or in the Day/Week/Month View With AutoPreview in Outlook 2002, the Free/Busy bar incorrectly displays Busy for the whole day.
This problem occurs when two events are scheduled for the same day in the Outlook 2002 Calendar. One is an all day event, and the other is a regular event that has a duration of 24 or more hours and a higher importance than the all day event.

Because the regular event has a higher importance than the all day event, the importance setting of the all day event is overridden and set to Busy.
