I like to put personal notes in meetings I am invited to. However, when the meeting needs to be updated, say to add an agenda, my personal notes are wiped out when I hit the "Update" button. Is there a way to keep personal notes on a meeting that do not get wiped out when updates are sent?

No, not directly but you can use a 'run a script' rule to create a copy of the original version before the update.

Code sample is here: Keep Canceled Meetings on Outlook’s Calendar | Slipstick Systems You'll need to edit it to handle updates:

If oRequest.MessageClass <> "IPM.Schedule.Meeting.Request" Then
- and include the body: oAppt.Message= cAppt.Message

In the rule, look for Update in the subject, so it only applies to updates.

Diane, thanks for the quick response. It's to bad MS does not even provide a warning on data loss! :( I don't do a lot of Outlook VBA, so I will take a look at the code and see what I can get to work.

Yeah, a warning would be nice.

I'm going to work on the tweak this afternoon- I'm sure more people would like the ability.
