Is there a way to clear all historic calendar entries. If there is a

recurring meeting that some have happened in the past and there are still

some meetings that haven't happened.....will the future meetings be deleted?

Can you choose just to clear "some" entries?

Since recurring events are single entries in the calendar, deleting the event

deletes all occurrences, both past and future. If you want to have an event

from this point forward, then you'll need to make a new event and delete the

old one.

Using AutoArchive is a good way to handle past events. It won't touch

recurring events whose end date hasn't yet arrived, but it will remove past

events that have alreday occurred.

I suppose you could change the existing event as well to give it a new start

date, but if you have any exceptions for occurrences in the future, they'll be

removed.
