I would like to show appointments spanning several days the same way as appintments within a single day.

Single day appointments are shown with a white or colored box, covering the day horizontally.

Multi-day appointments are shown in the day/week header and are indicated blue or purple on the left side of a day. This happens even if a multi-day appointment is not an all-day appointment (i.e. checkbox is off) and I have a start and end time. I frequently have a hard time seeing appointment overlaps wenn acceping single day appointments.

Therefore I am looking for multi-day appointments shown the same way as single day appointments.

I am on Outlook 2003.

A low tech solution but I found if you create the meeting for the first day only you can then right click copy it and then right click paste it to each of the other days in the calendar view.

Saves a lot of time

Sounds like your multi-day appointments are scheduled as all day events while "single day" appointments are part of the day. To get the same affect, schedule the multi day appointments as partial day (start & end time, not all day event) and repeat over several days.
