Problem regarding recurrence in event lists

  Asked By: Israel    Date: Jun 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1056

i'm having a serious problem regarding recurrence in event lists. i need to retrieve all the event entries in an events list and their workspace details(attendees etc.)for displaying them in a webpart. It works fine for non-recurring events. However, when it comes to recurring events, i am being able to retrieve only one entry. eg - I create an event beginning on 24th Feb and mark it to recur every day for the next 10 days; however the list returns only one entry for the whole recurring event. I need the list to return all the recurring ocurrences. This is essentially required as each recurring meeting can have different workspace details like attendees, agenda etc.. Is there any way to retrieve the individual details of each recurring meeting?? I'm stuck at this point..

I worked for some time with a student in DC on this very problem.
Although LVWPs know how to interpret the metadata returned for recurring
events, I am unaware of any way to tap into the logic that they use. The
best that you can do is retrieve  data for recurring events  like, recurs
every Thursday at 1:00 PM for two hours beginning  01/01/2005 to
03/01/2005 or something like that. You then must write the code to
generate all the events that would occur given that schedule. We didn't
find a swift solution and I haven't had time to write the code to
decipher all the permutations that recurring  events can generate.
