Like many others on this forum I unsuspectingly checked "synch mail and contacts" when Apple asked me. The "synching" wiped out my Outlook calendar and contact information. I have tried to copy the entries out of the "list" view from the iCloud calendar to my former default calendar; when I use Ctl-A to copy everything and Ctl-V to paste it into the default calendar in "list" view Outlook doesn't complete the task and the default calendar remains unpopulated. I tried this with a small group of appointments yesterday and they transferred fine. The full list of appointments I tried to copy with Ctl-A is hundreds of entries long. Is Outlook choking on the volume or is there some other problem? I have already unchecked "synch" in the iCloud control panel, but not yet uninstalled iCloud from my Windows 7 laptop.

Thanks for the help, the other threads have been helpful but didn't address this obstacle.

It should work. Do you get any error messages?

Try sorting by the icon and moving them in groups by icon type - it's possible that it's choking on one item type. I had problems with one item when i moved between calendars - the problem item had a blue i icon. With that in the selection, outlook wanted to make a new meeting with attachments. Without it, it copied them as appointments.
