Arrow Calendar: Recurring events

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to configure recurring events/appointments for weekdays only? Example: I have a standing event every two days until May 26, 2005. When I set "Recurrence" to "Daily and "Every" to "2" my event also shows up on the weekends. Is there another way to go about this other than manually deleting all the events that show up on the weekend days?

I have BB 7520, 4.0. Not using BES.

There isn't a way to do this on the BlackBerry handheld. Looking at Outlook, it doesn't appear possible there either though...

I forgot to mention that I did check both outlook and iCal (which I use at home).

I just thought I might be overlooking something on my handheld.

Thanks.

Not all of us have time to sit down everyday and read replies ;P

In any case, thanks for your suggestion but it will not work for my situation. Unless of course you can go into *more* detail. As stated in my orignal post, I have standing committments every other weekday until May 2006. On my old Nextel datebook, I had a choice of "full week" repeat events or "workweek only".

You could make them separate entries. For instance, mondays appt then have it occur weekly till 5/06. Then wed and do the same and so on.
