Can no longer sync Outlook with iPhone calendar after iPhone update to 17.1.1

I have an iPhone 12 with a gmail email account. I don't sync my calendar with iCloud, it's sync'd with Microsoft Outlook. At first, search was not working, so I went to iPhone Calendar Search not working iOS 17… - Apple Community
The solution there didn't work. It had me delete my gmail account (not sure if it should have been iCloud account instead). I lost all my emails. I added them back in by creating the account again. However, ALL my calendars are completely blank (iPhone calendar, Awesome Calendar (1 & 2).

When I try to sync iPhone with Outlook, it won't sync (it says "preparing to sync" & then nothing). I really screwed up my calendars.

How can I sync my iPhone calendar with Outlook?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, you may wish to look at using gSyncit Fieldston Software
It can handle sync'ing of calendars and contacts from many providers.

Thank you for your reply. I will note that solution for the future. After a quick look at the description, I notice that it doesn't say it sync's Outlook with an iPhone (& I don't use iCloud calendars, as I find they cause duplicate entries). However, I deleted my 2 "Awesome calendars (1 & 2), downloaded them again, & now everything works.

Thank you again.
