I cannot set up a new appointment in outlook 2003 calendar

Not open for further replies.


When I type a new appointment directly in the calendar, I get an error message "could not save item".

When I try to open a new appointment from the Action tab, nothing happens.

Do you have an Exchange mailbox or is this just a local PST file? Is this a home machine or a corporate machine?

Did it ever work? Years ago, the update KB967715 was reported to cause it, but that update is 18 months old, so unless you never install updates, this should have been a problem for a very long time. If, for some reason, you installed the update recently and the problem started after that, uninstall the update.
