Oddities with the 'week view' in lists

  Asked By: Roxanne    Date: Feb 09    Category: MOSS    Views: 867

We've been having a problem with calendar views in WSS 2.0. I've posted
this to MS's newsgroups with no fixes, but one reply saying 'me too'.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, any fix? Anyone know if this
problem exists in WSS3.0/MOSS?

Here's the situation:

When setting up a view of an events list, you can choose the weekly

We've done this, and for some reason, the weekly view doesn't actually
display all of the events for each day. And I don't know why.

The only thing I can think of is the 'Base Calendar On' section in the
COLUMNS area. But I have no idea what this mean. What does 'base
calendar on
begin' mean?

Some more oddities:

If I go and edit this view, change the BASE ON option, hit save, go
and then change it back to BASE ON BEGIN, then more of the events show
than before. But still not all.

Also, the default view (when the events list is made) shows a month,
you can click on to see SHOW WEEK. This looks the same as the custom
but DOES contain all of the items.

I created another Calendar View, called it MyTest and used the EXACT
settings as the other Calendar View. My view shows less items than the
existing Calendar View. Neither shows all the events that are available

I'd wager that you have more than 2000 list  items in your calendar. There are
known issues with calendar  views in v2. These are supposed to have been fixed in
v3 but I've not tested this.

Be careful not to assume that just because you upgrade to V3, that your
lists/document libraries or folders that have >~2000 items  will
magically start working perfectly.

Also, it's not just "Views". There are performance/scalability impacts
with lists/document libraries or folders within which are >~2000 items

I went in to look at it turns out there are only 220 items. So I guess
it's not that particular limit. I'll still chalk it up to just being a
bug in WSS2 and we'll see what happens after the upgrade later this

You could try indexing the column you sort the view  by.
