Where you said, "I know you're wondering if I had saved," I'm pretty sure you did save - because Calendar Creator will always display a message reminding you to save if you try to close a calendar that has been changed but hasn't been saved. And, I know for certain that Calendar Creator will display that reminder message if you change a repeat rule but don't manually save the calendar before you try to close it.
I have been using the same Calendar Creator file for more than 5 years. And, in all that time, I have never experienced a problem with the repeat rules (when I set a repeat rule, I ALWAYS set that repeat rule 10-20 years in the future). So, I'm afraid I don't have any quick and easy explanation/solution for your problem. I do, though, have an idea what went wrong.
You said in your message that you "advanced to 2008". I suspect that what happened was that you may not have advanced far enough. As an example, imagine (if you will) that you want to set a repeat date for a Birthday that occurs on June 20. Then, when you set that birthday to repeat until 2008, you select a day earlier than June 20 in Step 5 below (June 1, for example). What will happen is that the Birthday will repeat ONLY until June 1, 2008. And, since the Birthday is actually on June 20, that Birthday will not display in the calendar for 2008. So, you must always be sure that the Repeat Rule is set to the actual date of the event.
You should be able to see what I mean if you will double-click on any event that is not repeating correctly. When the Modify Event window opens, compare the Start Date of that event to the Repeat Until date of that event. If the Month AND Day in the Start Date is LATER than the Month AND Day in the Repeat Until date, that event will not repeat for the Year that is in the Repeat Until date.
So, if the repeat rules are truly not repeating far enough into the future for you, I'm afraid there's only one thing you can do - you will have to reset the repeat rules.
As you may already know, the quickest way to set repeat rules is to:
1. Double-click an event (to open the Modify Event window)
2. Make sure there is a dot in the circle next to 'Repeat Until'
3. Click on the 'Repeat Until' box with the 3 periods (...) to open the calendar
4. When the calendar opens, click on the >> button several times to move the repeat rule ahead several years.
5. Click on the Month AND Day when that event should be displayed on the calendar. This will cause the calendar to close.
6. After the calendar closes, check the entire date (Month, Day & Year) in the Repeat Until box to make sure it repeats until the correct Month AND Day for the desired year.
