Before I go to the effort to create and import a custom holiday calendar
so that I can see they Day of Year, is there any way to get outlook to
display this?

What I am looking for is the count. So for example 01/15/2008 was day 15.
02/01/2008 was day 32. Today (03/19/2008) is day 78. I seem to recall
having had this before, but I could be wrong. '

Thanks!
Richard Ahlquist

I work with Julian dating a lot, its very handy to know what day of the
year it is. For example someone asked me to update a date field to the
14th of March today and I had to figure out that the date for that Julian
field as stored in raw form in the MSSQL database is 108074. 1 being
nothing 08 being the year and 074 being what day of the year it is since
the beginning of the year.

I found a solution that worked on Diane Poremsky's site. I created a
custom import following her guide at
http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/countdown.htm

From a former MVP allow me to express my gratitude for those of you who
still provide such fast and good service to the community.
