FirstDateTime (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the first ever day, week, or month of a recurring series, dating back to a reference date, which is January 1, 1601, for a Gregorian calendar. The value and its meaning depend on the value of the RecurFrequency field. The value of the FirstDateTime field is used to determine the valid dates of a recurring series, as specified in section 2.2.1.44.1.2.

The value and meaning of the FirstDateTime field for each type of recurrence frequency are specified in the following table. For details about how the value is calculated, see section 2.2.1.44.1.1.

Frequency

Value and Meaning

Daily

The number of minutes between midnight January 1, 1601, and the first ever day on which the event would occur.

Weekly

The number of minutes between midnight January 1, 1601, and the first day of the first ever week in which the event would occur.

Monthly or Yearly

The number of minutes between midnight January 1, 1601, and the first day of the first ever month in which the event would occur.

Period (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the interval at which the meeting pattern specified in PatternTypeSpecific field repeats. The Period value MUST be between 1 and the maximum recurrence interval, which is 999 days for daily recurrences, 99 weeks for weekly recurrences, and 99 months for monthly recurrences. The following table lists the values for this field based on the recurrence frequency, which is specified in the RecurFrequency field.

Frequency

Value

Daily recurrence

The period is stored as the minutes in whole number of days. For example, to define a recurrence that occurs every two days, the Period field is set to 0x00000B40, which equals 2880 minutes, or two days.

Weekly recurrence

The period is stored in weeks. For example, if the Period field is set to 0x00000002, the meeting occurs every two weeks.

Monthly or yearly recurrence

The period is stored in months. If the recurrence is a yearly recurrence, The Period field MUST be set to 12.

SlidingFlag (4 bytes): This field is only used for scheduling tasks; otherwise the value MUST be zero (0). For more details about sliding tasks, see [MS-OXOTASK] section 3.1.4.6.2.

PatternTypeSpecific (variable): A structure that specifies the details of the recurrence pattern. The structure varies according to the value of the PatternType field, as specified in sections 2.2.1.44.1.3, 2.2.1.44.1.4, 2.2.1.44.1.5, and 2.2.1.44.1.6.

EndType (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the ending type for the recurrence. This field MUST be set to one of the values listed in the following table.

Recurrence range type

Value

End after date

0x00002021

End after N occurrences

0x00002022

Never end

SHOULD be 0x00002023 but can be 0xFFFFFFFF

OccurrenceCount (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the number of occurrences in a recurrence.

When the EndType of the pattern is "End after date", this value always has to be computed. Although the value of this field is always set, its value has no meaning on a recurring series that has no end date. This value can be set to 0x0000000A for a recurring series with no end date.<14>

FirstDOW (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the day on which the calendar week begins. The default value is Sunday (0x00000000). This field MUST be set to one of the values listed in the following table.

Day

Value

Sunday

0x00000000

Monday

0x00000001

Tuesday

0x00000002

Wednesday

0x00000003

Thursday

0x00000004

Friday

0x00000005

Saturday

0x00000006

DeletedInstanceCount (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the number of elements in the DeletedInstanceDates field.

DeletedInstanceDates (variable): An array of dates, each of which is the original instance date of either a deleted instance or a modified instance for this recurrence. The number of dates contained in this array is specified by the DeletedInstanceCount field. Each date is stored as the number of minutes between midnight, January 1, 1601, and midnight of the specified day, in the time zone specified by the PidLidTimeZoneStruct property (section 2.2.1.39). The dates are ordered from earliest to latest.

The array contains exactly one element for each deleted instance, and every deleted instance is represented. The array also contains an entry for every modified instance. The array SHOULD NOT contain duplicate entries. Deleted instances for which there is no corresponding value in the ModifiedInstanceDates field imply that they have been completely removed from the pattern.

ModifiedInstanceCount (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the number of elements in the ModifiedInstanceDates field. The value of this field MUST be less than or equal to the value of the DeletedInstanceCount field.

ModifiedInstanceDates (variable): An array of dates, each of which is the date of a modified instance. The number of dates contained in this array is specified by the ModifiedInstanceCount field. Each date is stored as the number of minutes between midnight, January 1, 1601, and midnight of the specified day, in the time zone specified by the PidLidTimeZoneStruct property (section 2.2.1.39). The dates are ordered from earliest to latest.

The array contains exactly one element for each modified instance, and every modified instance is represented. The array SHOULD NOT contain duplicate entries. Every modified instance also has to have an entry in the DeletedInstanceDates field with the original instance date.

StartDate (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the date of the first occurrence. The value is the number of minutes between midnight, January 1, 1601, and midnight of the date of the first occurrence.

EndDate (4 bytes): An integer that specifies the ending date for the recurrence. The value is the number of minutes between midnight, January 1, 1601, and midnight of the date of the last occurrence. When the value of the EndType field is 0x00002022 (end after n occurrences), this value is calculated based on the number of occurrences If the recurrence does not have an end date, the value of the EndDate field MUST be set to 0x5AE980DF.
