Outlook Calendar Only Prints Recurring Events & Appointments

Q: Outlook Calendar Only Prints Recurring Events & Appointments

When I go to print preview in my calendar in outlook 2002, it only displays my recurring events and appointments. None of the individual, one-time entries are there. Same thing when it prints, only the recurring ones. The other are all there on the screen but they just don't show in preview or print. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Help, recently (as in about two weeks ago) my Outlook2000 calendar has suddenly started showing all the appointments (birthdays from contacts and and holidays are all I have use it for) as "Multi-day events". They really shouldn't be of course - but something has gone terribly wrong in the program.

Does anyone have any idea what caused this or how to fix it with out having to delete all the birthdays and reenter them individually?

This is very frustrating....
thanks for any assistance!

We have multiple conference rooms with resources in active directory so we can schedule meetings in the conference rooms.

Recently, I'm not sure for how long, whenever someone creates a recurring event with no end date when you go into the event on the conference room calender it only shows recurring for 4-6 months.

So when I create the event the resource only accepts the invitation through about 5 months.

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

I've been dealing with a strange problem with recurring outlook appointments and can't find any information about it. I wondered if anyone could help.

It presents in 2 parts...

1. A recurring appointment was set up in Jan this year to run until the end of the year. Whenever you open a future occurrence of this appointment, regardless of the date, the start/end date shows the date the back in Jan when the app. started. These were all blank appointments for people to fill in as they get the details, but you have to manually adjust the dates or it tries to save the app. back to the first slot in Jan.

2. Some of these appointments are showing as Discussions rather than Appointments. The normal fields for start/end date/time aren't there. At the top it says "Post to: Microsoft Office Outlook Embedded Message" but I can't find out how to do it purposefully never mind change it back to an Appointment so that times can be adjusted.

Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I have a 3Ghz PC running Windows Xp Home and my question for you is about MS Outlook 03; specifically about the calendar feature. Some of the appointments that I create in the calendar will flash a reminder for me that they are coming due, just like they are supposed to and some of them won’t; the date and time just pass without any notification. I don’t think I am doing any thing differently between setting up the ones that work and the ones that won’t. I have my copy of Win Xp set to automatically update itself and I always check for any new updates for Office at least once a month. I even reloaded MS Office, thinking that some part of it must be corrupted. Any suggestions?

A:Outlook 2007 Calendar appointments disappearing

First backup your current profile by exporting the PST somewhere easy to find. Next delete your current profile. Go to Programs and Features, select MS Office, then choose to Change and use the Repair feature.
Reboot, manually go to Windows Update and look for new updates, be sure to look through the optional updates and select and download any Office Updates, especially those for Outlook. Reboot the machine, fire up Outlook and create a new profile. If anything is missing, import the original PST but make sure you choose to Ignore Duplicates. That will extract and import only what is not already there.

Does anyone know if it's possible to print a weekly view of a calendar in Outlook 2003 showing free/busy details but without displaying the appointment details? I know it's possible to hide private appointments, but this does not meet our needs.

To put this into context:

We have three meeting rooms in our library, each with their own 'resource' calendar in our Outlook system which is used to manage the room bookings. We wish to print the bookings out on a weekly basis and display them on the meeting room doors so people can see if the room is free/booked. There is a data protection problem with us printing the room bookings with people's details in it owing to the public nature of our building. The calendars are shared amongst all the library employees and everyone needs to see who the bookings have been made for on the computer so making them all 'private' appointments is not practical.

Has anyone done anything similar? Anyone got a solution?
Thanks in anticipation!

A:2003 Excel to Outlook Calendar appoinment VB macro creates duplicates appointments

Hi jayJay,

I'm not going to look through the whole code but what I think happens is that sinec you run the macro every time it will just add an appoitment, I think an options should be added, something like an extra column namen DONE and when the macro is run the cell in the column DONE should be given a value True() or a 1 to indicate it as done, so that when you run the macro again the column DONE cells where the valkue is not True() or is not 1 (dependign on waht you choose) is carried out.
This way you will avoid duplication.
Just an idea, happy coding.

I need help with a macro. So far the macro is operating as it should , creating MS Outlook 2010 calendar appointments using data from an excel data spreadsheet (data base). The issue I’m having is that every time the macro is run for a new entry, duplicate calendar appointments are created for the already existing data in the data base. I would like to have the macro do a search to ensure an appointment does not exist before creating one. I have read a few threads with similar problems but have had major issues incorporating the solutions to resolve the issue I’m having.

I have attached the macro in txt. format for reference.

Thanks for your help.


A:Solved: Excel macro updating Outlook calendar is creating duplicate appointments.

You can use this function to check if an appointment exists based on the Start Day/Time

Dim oNameSpace As Outlook.Namespace
Dim oApptItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim oFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim oMeetingoApptItem As Outlook.MeetingItem

' check if Outlook is running
Set oApp = GetObject("Outlook.Application")
If Err <> 0 Then
'if not running, start it
Set oApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
End If

Set oNameSpace = oApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oFolder = oNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)

CheckAppointment = False
For Each oObject In oFolder.Items
If oObject.Class = olAppointment Then
Set oApptItem = oObject

CheckAppointment = True
End If
End If
Next oObject

Set oApp = Nothing
Set oNameSpace = Nothing

For this to work you need to have Tools/References/Microsoft Outlook xx Object Library enabled.

Setup: Outlook 2002 in a domain to an Exchange server.

We have a shared calendar to which everyone can view and add events. If an employee takes a day off, they put an all-day event in the shared calendar that shows them as being off that day, thereby allowing everyone else to know who is in and who is not. Normally, everyone can see those events with no problem when viewing a single day. The problem occurred on Friday when 13 people took the day off. If anyone had their screen resolution set to 800x600 (which most people do), then they could only see the first 10 all-day events with no scroll bars available to see the other three. The only way for them to view the other three is to change their screen res to 1024x768 and then close and reopen Outlook. Problem is, most people have 15" LCD monitors, so using 1024x768 is not acceptable, especially considering that some need 640x480 to view their screen.

As you might imagine, I am having a devil of a time finding anything online about this and how to change it. I have scoured through Outlook,,, and this board to find an answer, but I have found nothing helpful. I am hoping that their is some sort of registry tweak or something to make this go bye-bye.

Last week I had a registry corruption that forced me to revert to a registry copy from right after I installed Win2k. (I back up my data regularly, but I'd gotten careless about backing up the registry. Learned my lesson the hard way. I have a current ERD now...)

I've gotten most apps running OK again, but I've run into a problem with Outlook. I use it only for the calendar functions. I can open the calendar and all my existing appointments are there and OK. I can delete existing appointments. But if I try to enter a new appointment, or save changes to existing appointments, I get an error: "The item could not be saved to the folder. The folder has been deleted or removed, or you do not have permission."

Since I can access and delete appointments, obviously there are no folder access problems. I searched on the MS KB and on the web, and everything I could find referencing this error message says "you've exceeded the max mailbox size, go delete some mail." I don't use Outlook mail, and my calendar file is tiny, so that's not it.

I'm guessing there's some problem with the registry. It's also possible I outsmarted myself when I recovered from the registry crash. I had to recreate my login ID, but when I did, W2k assigned me to the folder "Gary.W2k" in Documents and Settings. (Actually I think it had done this before, and this time it created "Gary.W2k.000.")

I have had this problem a lot! There is a built-in method of getting rid of them:
In Calendar, in the Navigation Pane, select the Calendar folder.
On the View menu, point to Current View, and then click By Category.
Click the Subject column heading to arrange all the calendar items by subject.
Hold down CTRL while you click each duplicate calendar item in the list.
When you have selected all the duplicate calendar items, press DELETE.
However, this can still be very cumbersome if you have a lot of calendar items (or contacts, or whatever). I therefore use some paid-for software called Duplicates Remover for Outlook from Mapilab. It works pretty well; not flawlessly, because occasionally Outlook falls over during startup and you have to start it again, but it finds and deals with duplicates very quickly and efficiently

Hi all,

I have an issue with Calendar Appointments in Microsoft Outlook. I use Outlook 2003. When I send a calendar appointment to a recipient I receive the following system administrator error:

"The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address."

The actual recipient receives my calendar appointment and accepts it. The above error appears because it also sends the calendar appointment to another recipient who no longer works at the company. The main recipient has no delegate permissions granted to anybody so I am unsure as to why the error appears and why it sends the appointment to this secondary person.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to solve this? It only happens to this particular individual when sending calendar appointments.

I'm using the Microsoft Calendar application in Windows 8. I don't recall if it was already on my laptop when I bought it or if I installed it from the store very early on. (I got the laptop new for Christmas in 2012. It's an ASUS K55N if that matters.)

I'm troubled by the fact that some of my appointments have disappeared. For instance, I created two appointments for today when I was using the laptop yesterday and was very disappointed to see that they weren't there when I turned on the laptop this morning. Since I was online when I added the appointments and was offline when I checked this morning, I thought MAYBE the appointments made when you're online only become visible when you're online but I'm online now and I still don't see those appointments.

Is there some trick I need to know to make it remember my appointments? I don't mean to imply that it never remembers appointments: I've got several appointments in the calendar that were remembered perfectly well and are still there, weeks after they happened. It's just that SOME appointments seem to disappear for no reason that is obvious to me.

In the absence of a trick or setting that guarantees the appointments are remembered, can anyone suggest a good free Calendar-type app that reliable remembers ALL appointments?

C:\Documents and settings\User's folder\Local settings\Application data\Microsoft\Forms\Frmcache.dat

This resolves the issue for every user who only manages their own calendar, but the users who make appointments on other peoples calendars are unable to make appointments on other people's calendar but they can on their own. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My events only show up in the top half of the day in the monthly view so I can only get two events to show. The arrow points to more messages but it seems like I should be able to fit three events at least.

A:How can I have more than two events show up in my monthly calendar?

If you talking about Outlook calendar, it seems like this parameter depends on your window size. Third item shows up when your windows is about 730 pixels high (standard scaling), fourth - 900 pixels high. You can minimize ribbon (little arrow in the top right corner of the window) or change resolution to get more useful space on the screen, but looks like that's about it.

Hello. All of my events in my Yahoo calendar have disappeared. I've gone 3 weeks now without access. I have a business account with Yahoo so they have "escalated" the issue, which I now understand is a joke since their front line people are outsourced and give me the same scripted "working on it" BS every time I call and today advised me that they have no method of communication with their escalation team. I have given up on them fixing it. I thought it was a sync issue with my iPhone/iPad however I cannot even pull up the data on the yahoo site under my login via my Windows XP or Windows 10 laptops. My business and personal life are failing as a result of this. All events in my life are stored on their servers and unfortunately, because I assumed that because my data was housed with one of the largest ISP's in existence, therefore THIS could never happen...I never did back up the data anywhere else. I thought I had on my iCloud but Apple corrected me stating that is not the case because Yahoo is a 3rd party.

I've been experiencing a problem with the Windows 10 Calendar app - it shows duplicate events.
I'm using a Microsoft account ( and have it configured on the computer. Mail app Works ok and syncs. Calendar App shows duplicate events. If I access the same calendar on the calendar shows OK with no duplicates. On another computer with the same Setup the calendar does not show duplicates, Works as expected so this seems a problem confined to this one computer only.

This Windows 10 instalation is about a month old (installed from scratch - no upgrade from 8) and has all published MS updates instaled and also all app updates.

Have tried to uninstall the Calendar app, rebooted, reinstall the app, but duplicates persist.

Any ideas? Thank you.

Just installed Win10 yesterday, and taking a first look at the Calendar app. Unless I have overlooked something, this app has a flaw that makes it almost not worth using.

I'm using the app to display my Google Calendar events, a month at a time. In many cases, I have enough events scheduled for a single day that they won't all fit in the cell in Month View. Is there really no way to display all the events for a given date (including the ones that don't fit) in Month View? (For example, in the Calendar app on my phone, it is usually the case that not all the events for a given date show in the grid, but tapping the date in question displays a pop-up that shows them all). This app just runs them off the bottom of the cell. It doesn't even alert you to the fact that there are additional events for that date that it isn't displaying!

Dare I hope I'm missing something here?


A:Calendar: Multiple events in month view

I guess nobody shares my angst for the perceived shortcomings of the Calendar app.

All the same, thought I'd mention that I installed an app from the Store called One Calendar that seems to be free, and does not suffer from the above-stated problem (when viewing in Month View, if there are 'n' events that don't fit in the grid, One Calendar displays a little '+n' at the top of the cell, alerting you to the fact that there's more you're not seeing; then clicking on the cell brings up the Day View, so you can see it all).

All's well that ends well.

I changed the password to my Microsoft account a couple of days ago and now Facebook events won't sync to my Windows Phone, nor my Surface 2, nor in the online microsoft calendar application.

It shows old events but new ones doesn't pop up. I've tried various settings in the apps and in my Microsoft account settings online. I've tried removing the connection between my FB account and my MS account and reconnecting. I've tried removing the FB account from my phone and resyncronizing (couldn't find such an option on the Surface) but it changes nothing. Facebook events is enabled in the calendar settings on both devices and if I try to manually export my FB calendar to my microsoft calendar it tells me it cannot sync the same account twice.

I suspect that I am not able to do what I would like to but will ask the questions just in case...
I use the Ms calendar on my Lumia 920 which in turn updates the online version at the Ms Live website as well as the Windows Live calendar accessed via my email client.
All good so far.
Problems started when I gave the wife access to my calendar but she keeps forgetting to check it before making appointments for us (which conflict with important things like my golf).
I thought there was a way of having the calendar create an automatic email whenever I added a new event and have that email sent to the wife to alert her to my latest meeting/tee time.
Checked all places where I would have expected to find an option to make the wife a recipient of alert emails but have failed. Seems I can send an update/new event alert to myself but to nobody else.
Can somebody confirm that to be the case. (If I have selected the wrong category for this posting then apologies.)
Thanks in advance.

What if you add your wife in the entry you make in your agenda ("add someone" required or better optional) in that case she will get an e-mail (to except) and this entry will also be in your wives calendar.

I created an event using the voice recognition in Cortana on my Lumia 930. Fine. Worked beautifully, but it didn't sync with my calendar or Outlook so I created it again manually later. Then I wanted to delete the event Cortana created ... and I couldn't. I have restarted the handset, checked within the 'Reminders' section of Cortana's menu, and tried to delete it within the Calendar app. I still seem unable to remove this rogue event.
I contacted Microsoft support (or their hopeless UK representatives B2X with their slogan 'Chat with an expert', which is just a joke) and was first told to 'enable deletion of Cortana items within the Cortana menu'. There is no such option. Then they told me to delete it from It doesn't sync with, which is how I came to create the second event. Finally I was told that the only way to remove the rogue 'Cortana events' would be to do a factory reset on my, which seems a little over the top.

Welcome to the forums @CParah . Sorry to hear that your drive bit the dust, I know what a pain that can be!

I don't think there's a way to do what you are asking unfortunately. I'm guessing you're storing calendar information locally, rather than using an Exchange/Office365/Google server? There are some free options to store your calendar information on a cloud server so that you can just sync to recover the data (and access it on your phone, etc...). Not much help now, but may help you out should it happen again in the future.

Have you still got the hard drive? There are data recovery tools that may help you get back some data, but perhaps you have already tried this.

I'm using Microsoft Outlook 2007.
When I make a "new appointment", I usually "INSERT" business cards to it (from Contacts, of course).
But when I happen to update contacts information later on (in Contacts), the change made by me in the particular contact (for example phone number) does not get reflected in the business cards in appointments. The change is only made in Contacts, but not in scheduled appointments. Which makes the whole process much more time consuming, as I prepare a lot of reccurenced appointments, so I hoped that once I've set them up I wouldn't need to check them again...

Anyone could help...??

You can change the recurring appointment as a series with the new business card.

Or I suspect that you could use VBA to "refresh" all of your appointments on the click of a menu button, or maybe based after you update a contact information.

I have the strangest problem I've ever run across. I'm running WinXP SP2 and the Student-Teacher edition of Office 2003. EVERYTHING works fine with the exception of the Appointment Window that pops up whenever I want to schedule a new appointment in the Outlook 2003 calendar. After typing the subject of the appt, I move down to the middle section of the window to select the Start date and time as well as the End date and time. I click on the little down arrow next to these fields and a pull-down appears showing me a little calendar for the dates and a list of times for the time field. BUT, the minute I move my mouse from that little arrow, the pull-down disappears!!! The identical thing happens in the lower section to select the reminder duration. Bo other field in OUTLOOK or any other Office 2003 program has this issue. This is VERY annoying! Can anyone help me out?

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her account, then you may need to generate an app password from her account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Can anyone shed some light on how to share information in Outlook 2002 with a group of people? I can't figure it out using the help in Outlook (what's new here?!). Any info would be helpful - I noticed a few old postings on Outlook 2000 but none on 2002

I am a "convertee" from ACT! 6.0 to Outlook 2003 and have been having some problems adjusting my work flow.

When I make an appointment in Outlook, it lets me assign a date and time to the appointment. How do I indicate that the appointment has been "completed" without "dismissing" it, which seems to delete it entirely?

The other option I thought about was making all of my appointments, to do items, etc. as "Tasks". This will allow me to mark the item as completed, but will not allow me to assign a beginning and ending time.

Any ideas for a work around or an add on that will allow me to mark appointments or to do items as complete without erasing them?

Thanks in advance for your help.

When I create a calendar event in outlook 2010 it does not show up in day/week/work week/month view, however it sometimes syncs with my hd2 and shows up as an appointment on the pocket pc screen.

If I try to create another event over the same time period while using my desktop, it shows ''conflicts with another appointment''.

If I create the event on the pocket pc it will not sync back to the desktop

When co-workers plan a meeting and are looking at free/busy times, they can see the details of any appointment if they hover the mouse pointer over the appointment.
Is there a way to block that?

I've got one staffer who is experiencing the following issue with Outlook 2007 calendaring.

She has a recurring appointment on Wednesday of every week. 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting, the reminder pops up. OK... this is good.

It's an hour long meeting, and 15 minutes after the end of the meeting, a reminder pops up that she is now past due to the meeting.

Then, it keeps reminding every 15 minutes and will continue to do so until the notices are ignored. It does this everyday, until the next meeting rolls around, when it starts reminding 15 minutes ahead again. Not so good.

Any thoughts as to where to start looking for the source of this oddity?

We recently made a switch from Office 2002 to Office 2007.

One of our administrative assistants made a booking in Outlook within a room calendar rather than using her personal calendar and adding the room as a resource. She now needs to change it to a different venue.

We can book it in the new venue. However, we cannot find a way to delete this event. (Compounding problem: This is also a recurring event for several weeks in a very busy room. So even though it's free, no one can book it, leading to several people thinking they have the room at the same time.)

In 2002, I would log on as the resource and delete it manually, but since the resource is set up as a room, I no longer have access.

Any thoughts from anyone?

Hi guys,

I've got some lovely code that add appointments to outlook, However I would like it to check to make sure it's not adding in a duplicate entry, I have seen an answer on here but I couldn't get it to work, I'm not exactly a super user!!

If Err.Number <> 0 Then
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
End If

On Error GoTo 0

Set shtSource = ActiveSheet
For lngRow = 3 To shtSource.Cells(Rows.Count, 10).End(xlUp).Row

Set olAppointment = olApp.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)

With olAppointment
.Subject = shtSource.Cells(lngRow, 2) & " " & shtSource.Cells(lngRow, 3) & " " & shtSource.Cells(lngRow, 4)

For some reason Outlook seems to be sending any appointments straight to the delete items box, if you go in there and check the item, you see where it will give you the accept or deny at the top. There are no rules setup or anything special.

How could this be happening?

Is there any way to assign a particular label or to enter invites to a group of appointments/meeting entries.

I have 103 meetings on my bosses calendar - all different dates and times - but they all pertain to the same thing and need to be labeled accordingly. I have used the search feature in Outlook to list them all in one place. Now if I could only highlight them all and assign the label to the group rather than go into each of the 103 individual appointments to assign the label. Also, I need to invite the same person to all of these 103 appointments.

Does anyone know if it is possible to group-label and group-invite in Outlook??
