Hello,

I am using Outlook 2007 (part of Office 2007 SP2). I keep getting a

reminder for an appointment that I have deleted. When I click on the <open
button on the reminder window nothing happens, and when I search for the

appointment in my calendar it is not there. How do I get rid of this

reminder permanently?

Thanks,

Bob

Try running the Inbox Repair Tool:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\SCANPST.EXE"

on your Outlook Data file:

"C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application

Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.PST"

Start Outlook with the /cleanreminders switch;

Start-> Run; outlook.exe /cleanreminders

I tried that suggestion but it did not work. I will try the next in the

thread, maybe.

Does this remove, delete or erase all reminders?

It regenerates the reminders from the entries you have in your folders.

Thank you! I believe that did the trick. Any idea why that would have

happened (that the ghost reminder was there)?

You're welcome! :)

This could have happened by a write failure, a corrupt meeting request

(possibly via a sync with a mobile device) or a previous crash of Outlook.

There are some other scenarios in which you might encounter this too.

Usually this is a one-off though and not a persistent issue.
