iCalendar problem

Hello all,

On my webpage
I offer an iCalendar file with the FIFA wk 2006 match schedule so my
visitors can import it easily in Outlook.

When you import the file in Outlook all matches are shown correct. The
problem is that when you synchronize Outlook with a PDA alle matches
are shown as a all day event and they are displayed the day following
on the day the match is played.

Does anybody recognize this problem? And can you tell me how to solve

This is how I write the appointments:
objStreamWriter = new streamwriter(FI LENAME)
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("BEG IN:VCALENDAR")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("PRO DID:-//John's ICS writer")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("VER SION:2.0")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("MET HOD:PUBLISH")
objStreamWriter .Write(vbCrLf)

.... Loop through the list of appointments
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("BEG IN:VEVENT")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("DTS TART;VALUE=DATE :" &
dt1.ToString("y yyyMMdd\\THHmms s\\Z"))
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("DTE ND;VALUE=DATE:" &
dt2.ToString("y yyyMMdd\\THHmms s\\Z"))
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("LOC ATION:" & splitout(7))
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("TRA NSP:TRANSPARENT ")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("UID :we*******@boer s.sohosted.com" )
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("DTS TAMP:" &
DateTime.Now.To String("yyyyMMd d"))
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("CAT EGORIES:2006 FIFA World Cup")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("SUM MARY:WK 2006 match " & splitout(0)
& ": " & splitout(2))
objStreamWriter .Write("DESCRIP TION:")
objStreamWriter .Write("2006 FIFA World Cup: " & splitout(1))
objStreamWriter .Write("\n" & splitout(2))
objStreamWriter .Write("\n\n---\nthis iCalender file is offered to
you by http://www.tdf.boers.s ohosted.com.")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("\nC reate your own iCalendar files
easily at http://www.webtech.boe rs.sohosted.com/iCalendar/.")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("URL :www.tdf.boers. sohosted.com")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("STA TUS:CONFIRMED")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("CLA SS:Public")
objStreamWriter .WriteLine("END :VEVENT")
objStreamWriter .Write(vbCrLf)
--- end loop

objStreamWriter .WriteLine("END :VCALENDAR")
objStreamWriter .Close()

iCalendar is a standard (RFC 2445) for calendar data exchange. I plan to transfer data from iCalendar files (extension .ics), to a linked Outlook calendar table. While Outlook (2002) has an import strand for this, it does not seem to work with the format I shall be importing. iCalendar files are not comma delimited files. My first inclination is to open the iCalendar file with low level DOS commands, to parse its contents with Regular...

I am trying to write a light iCalendar server. I have no problem serving iCalendar data, which is just printing the right format with the right headers. The data comes from a database.
