How to COPY the entire contents of a Calendar to another Calendar in Outlook 2003

I corrupted my system and had to do a full re-install of my s/w. I don't

know how I screwed it up, but I somehow ended up with 2 Calendars in Outlook

after I opened up my backedup .pst file. One named "Calendar", the other one

named "Calendar(1)" .... Calendar1 apparently came from the Personal

Folders section of my back-up. My main CALENDAR has no entries. I also can't

remove it or rename it ... basically to make my CALENDAR1 my main calendar.

The other downside is that any entires I make will not play an "alarm" - I

get a message that the primary calendar entries can only issue

alerts/alrams.

So the short question is - just how can I fix this? Is there a way I can

just COPY and PASTE all entires from my old calendar into the main

calendar - and then I'll just remove the bad calendar.

Thanks

Change your Calendar view to All Appointments via the View menu. As this is

a table view, you can now easily select all the calendar items and move them

to your other Calendar.

For future reference, you might want to take note how to properly backup and

restore Outlook as getting this Calendar duplication clearly indicates you

have done something wrong in your restoration process ;-)

Re: How to COPY the entire contents of a Calendar to another Calendarin Outlook 2003

This is almost helpful, but not quite. I can't seem to find "All

Appointments" in the View menu.

I was able to bring up all my recurring events in a table, and then

transfer them from Calendar1 to Calendar, but I'm having no success

viewing all the other items in Calendar1 as a table.

I hope you can help. Thanks.

I'm using Outlook 2003, SP3, and there is not an "All Appointments"

view

So use another table view. "By Category" is a good one. Press Vtrl-A to

select all the items in the folder, then right-click and drag the selection to

the destination calendar folder. Choose Copy or Move when you release the

mouse button.

It works! Simple, but not obvious enough for the likes of me.

Thank you so much.
