API or Lists of human language ways to express dates in Outlook
« on: September 25, 2010, 10:02:58 AM »
If I press Enter in Outlook below, yesterday will be a perfectly acceptable due date and it will converted to yesterday's date.

I can also specify something like Friday and it will figure out I mean the upcoming Friday.

What I am looking for is either a complete list documenting all ways to specify dates in Outlook in plain English (or plain Urdu depending on your regional settings, although kal means both yesterday and tomorrow in Urdu, so I guess that wouldn't work) or an Outlook API to convert those plain language dates to real dates so that I can use them in programs outside of Outlook. Anyone know of anything like that out there?
