I have created a custom content type called Vacation for a calendar list. When I look at the list settings page in the columns section, I find a column called Comments which indicates it is used in the Vacation content type.

when I click into the Vacation content type settings page, the Comments column is not listed in the column section. Also, when I attempt to create a new calendar item there is no Comments section on the properties window.

Finally, Vacation is the only content type in this calendar.

any help would be appreciated.

Calendars are weird in that it uses a field with an internal of Comments but has a display name of Description. A lot of the calendar fields are this way, their internal field names differ from their display names.

very strange. so in the library settings the column will be called Comments and in the content type settings the column will be called Description? – Zane d. Apr 25 '13 at 19:11
