    Hi and welcome to the forum. It's good to "see" you and we hope you enjoy your visits.

    And wow! You've started off with an interesting issue! :)

    Have you tried to fully close the Calendar app, then restarting or rebooting the iPad? To do (apologies if you know):

    Fully Close an App (iOS 7): Double tap the Home button (or do a 4-finger swipe up) to reveal a row of icons and cards in the multi-tasking viewer. Swipe up on all the cards until they are all gone.

    Then...
    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't help, try this last step...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears. Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    Hopefully, one of those will sort it. If so, yay! If not, holler back and we'll take another shot at it.

    It kind of looks like you've got six or more events scheduled for the same day in the same time block, for the entire week, for the entire day. When two events share the same time block they get stacked side by side. If you have six or more then they are reduced to a single column of text. If the event spans several time blocks, it will extend downward.

    So, if you're first time block of the day had six events that last all day 12AM to 12PM (but are not All Day events, which are listed at the top), and you did this for every day of the week you'd get a display that looks just like yours. A whole bunch of blue lines with single columns of text.


    If this is not some kind of glitch (hopefully fixed by Marilyn's suggestions), then I'd look at your events. If you typically have 6 or more events a day that last all day, make sure you are checking them as All Day, and not just setting the times from 0 to 24 hours.

    Then they will show up in the gray bar above the timeline, like the FaceBook event in your screen shot.

    Or, if I'm completely off base, ignore me. It's just a guess.

    Thanks Mickey330!...yes, I have tried closing all apps in the manner you describe, and the hard re-start by holding the Home and Power buttons till the logo appears...no change...

    I also heard from another trying to help with this odd issue, and they noticed the Facebook logo at the top of the page, wondering if it's an incompatibility issue between the two...I'm currently looking into that...I'll get back to you...thanks again for your response!

    Thanks twerp poet, I'm currently investigating the Facebook angle, as there is a Facebook logo at the top of the screen, pointed out by someone else trying to assist with this issue...I appreciate your reply!

    The FaceBook logo is most likely an All Day event imported from your FaceBook account. You can turn off FaceBook's access to your calendar in Settings > FaceBook.

    I doubt it has anything to do with your main problem.

    Well, unless all those events are also being imported from FaceBook; but if so you would also see them in your Month view, just not all crowded together like that.

    OK...problem solved...kinda... Clicking the CALENDARS at the bottom of the page revealed that Facebook had become one of the sources for the Calendar...once I unchecked that, the calendar appeared as normal!!...but...all of my scheduled stuff is gone now too...I'm hoping that once I sync with the cloud, it'll all return...damn that Fbook......thanks to you guys for all of your help...

    Turning off a calendar in the Calendar app only hides the information. It does not remove it. If you want to remove the FaceBook info you need to turn off Calendars in Settings > Facebook.

    From the sounds of it, all the problem events are from your Facebook account.

    To see what your iCloud calendars look like you can visit icloud.com in a desktop browser. If it's not there, then there is nothing to sync back to the iPad.
