I have done this to some of my contacts but the birthday does not show in my calendar. I've checked and it is noted in the birthday section. Because the birthdays of some contacts are already noted in the birthday section I really do not want to go and create an additional recurring event for each. How can I fix this so that the birthdays show in my calendar? Regards
