I created a recurring meeting but the day and time has now changed. Is there

a way to "delete all future meetings" without changing data about past

meetings? This was an option on e-mail program I used before outlook years

ago (can't remember what it was - something associated with WordPerfect I

think), but can't figure out if this is possible in outlook 2003.

If the old appointments do not contain exceptions, you can change the end

date on the appointment. if you have exceptions, changing the end date will

regenerate the appointment and wipe out the exceptions. In this case, export

the calendar to excel, clean it up (remove other appointments) them import

the formerly recurring appointments.

Is there a solution if I'm not the organizer? If I ask the organizer

to remove me from the meeting To: list, then I will disappear from all

the meeting instances. I only want to be removed from future

instances.

Thanks,

Mike

AFAIK, there is no way to remove you from future occurrences without

affecting the ones in the past. If you need to keep the past ones for

reference, export them then import them as individual appointments. Then you

can delete the recurring meeting or ask the organizer to remove you.

Has nobody ever written a little tool for this?

Most meeting organizers just cancel the recurring meeting, not thinking about the consequences. I like to keep the past meetings due to attachments, changes, single meeting changes (exceptions), etc..
I was not aware that changing the recurrence to "delete" future meetings will also "reset" past exceptions...

Anyway, I have tons of "Canceled" recurring meetings which still are in my future calendar since I deleted the cancellation message to "protect" older occurences of that meeting I want to keep in the calendar. I can delete those cancelled meeting entries manually, but this is a pain.
