Reader Correction

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

David Curbo, a CPA with Cannon & Co., Memphis, Tenn., corrected an error in the “Shortcuts” item in the January 2010 column (page 68), where I described a fast way to schedule future dates and times in Outlook’s calendar. I said that, while it would easily schedule future days and weeks, it balked at future months. Not so: The code for future months is mo. First select New Appointment then, if the desired date is three weeks in the future, go to Start time and type 3 w (with or without a space between 3 and w) and then erase the rest of the date, automatically changing the Start time from, for example, Fri 5/7/2010 to Fri 5/28/2010. Use 3 d for days and 3 mo for months. If you want to skip ahead to a specific date in the existing month, use mm. If you are in May and you type 28 mm, that would change the date to 5/28/2010.
