I've seen numerous articles on how to get recurring events for the year, month, week or day. However, it appears that when using <Year /> the CalendarDate in QueryOptions is ignored.

In the below code, if I replace <Year /> with <Month /> then it respects the CalendarDate but with <Year /> it does not.

Any idea why?

    <FieldRef Name='Title' />
    <FieldRef Name='EventDate' />
    <FieldRef Name='EndDate' />
    <FieldRef Name='Location' />
    <FieldRef Name='Description' />
    <FieldRef Name='fRecurrence' />
    <FieldRef Name='RecurrenceData' />
    <FieldRef Name='fAllDayEvent' />
            <FieldRef Name='EventDate' />
            <FieldRef Name='EndDate' />
            <FieldRef Name='RecurrenceID' />
            <Value Type='DateTime'>
                <Year />
        <FieldRef Name='EventDate' />

Now and Year don't honour the CalendarDate property whereas others do honour it. See my article about it http://www.sharepointnadeem.com/2015/05/sharepoint-recurring-calendar-events.html

  • Have you noticed that CalendarDate is not honour it even for <Month /> in a DVWP? Aug 31, 2015 at 22:47
