When I add something to my calendar on my home computer and I invite an attendee, (myself at my work computer), I receive the invite at work and have the ability to accept or decline. When I accept, it is added to my calendar on my computer at work, which I presume, is how it is supposed to work.

However, when I add something to my work calendar and invite myself at my home computer, at home all i get is an email and no ability to accept or decline, and hence, no addition to the calendar. It used to work, but now it doesn't

any thoughts?

Thanks,
Neal

I have a problem with appointments on Outlook 2003: User A sends me an appointment. I accept and the appointment appears on my calendar and the appointment message is automatically deleted from my Inbox. Fine so far. User A sends me the same appointment a few days later. The message says that I have a conflict on my schedule. If I accept the appointment, two (2) appointments reading the same appear in my calendar. If I delete the message from my Inbox, the original appointment disappears from my calendar. What am I doing wrong? The Outlook Help files are, as usual, no help at all.

Windows 2000, Outlook 2003, Exchange.

We are using Exchange Server
Some staff in our executive branch have brand new laptops (lucky guys) with Office 2007[Of07]. They are creating calendars which need to be shared with other employees, most of which are running only Outlook 2003 [OL03].

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
Calendars:
---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
Group:
---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
Permissions:
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

Thank you.

HI..

Ive got an Outlook 2003 using Boss and a Outlook 2002 using Assistant who are having issues with sharing their calendar. The assistant is inputting appointment data into her bosses Outlook 2003 Calendar.

The issue is : The 2002 user puts in a whole day appointment on a given day (say 10/10/2004). When she opens her bosses 2003 calendar, the same appointment is still a whole day, but it stretches across 2 days (in this case 10/10/2004 and 11/10/2004). Both users use common Regional Settings (Australia).

Outlook 2002 user is at Office XP SP3.
Outlook 2003 user is at Office 2003 Pro SP1
Exchange Server 2000 (sp unknown)

Anyone have any ideas for me?

I feel like an idiot - I was trying to cancel an occurence of a recurring meeting in outlook 2003, however instead of hitting cancel meeting I hit delete which removed the meeting from my calendar. It is currently sitting in my deleted items folder. Is there a way to restore this meeting to my calendar? Also the cancel meeting button is greyed out however no cancellation has been sent.

Can anyone help me figure out how to get this meeting back into my calendar where I can cancel it properly so that it sends a cancellation?

Thanks

I would like to know if I can configure my Outlook 2003 Calendar so I can make a queue of tasks and then drag specific tasks into the calendar. I know how to generate a task list and I know how to create "appointments" in the calendar, but I can't seem to view both the task list and calendar at the same time. I'm trying create a scheduling system for our landscape company without having to invest in expensive software. We do not need a robust system, just one that we can have the crews view and access information attached to their specific "appointment". Does anyone have ideas?
 

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar

I am not sure about Outlook 2003, but in 2007 you can view your tasks right next to your calendar by clicking view > to do bar. You can also drag tasks to the calendar, but since you can set reminders in your tasks why bother? Do you have an Exchange Server or is this seperate standalone instances of Outlook? Access is great as a personal organizer, but I think it falls short in a lot of ways as a scheduling application. There are far better tools out there to do scheduling.

I'm administering an Exchange/Outlook 2003 environment, and was asked to make each user's calendar viewable by all other users. I know this can be done through delegation, but that would be too tedious of a job doing it manually. I believe it can also be done on the Exchange server itself, but was told this would open up the entire mail store - inbox, calendar, contacts, etc...

Can the calendar be done through a group policy?

Using Outlook 2003, when we display multiple calendars side by side (or even just one for that matter) the header just reads "Calendar" in the scheduling area. The only way we can tell one user's calendar from another is by the color coding, so we have to be very careful.

Just got Outlook going on a new wireless laptop, and we noticed that each person's name is displayed over the scheduling area. Great! It's also Outlook 2003, so is there a setting we need to change on our other PC's to accomplish this?
 

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar Views

Got this figured out! Turns out we had to go into Tools, E-Mail Accounts and change some options. Outlook had been set up to open mailboxes of each user, which isn't necessary in the newer version of Outlook 2003 when you just need their calendars. After they were removed there, we could go back and open a shared calendar and they automatically popped up under Other Calendars and now display their name across their schedule.

I don't have Outlook here at home, so I don't remember the exact steps I had to take to get to the open mailboxes area, but if anyone has this problem and needs assistance, just ask & I can double check the steps at work.

Hi all, I'm hoping someone has run into this before because it's driving me insane. I have a user who has created a personal distribution list, (she is not using the GAL) and when she uses this list, she gets bouncebacks (undeliverables) from two employers who are no longer at the company. Neither of these users are in AD at all, neither are (or were) delegates of the DL owner. I have deleted and recreated the DL twice, thinking that it is corrupt, and that has not fixed it. I have deleted the autodelete function, which did not work either. This is ONLY happening in her calendar, not regular email. There are no different permissions in her calendar, either.

If i copy the code from the original email then it remains fine.

I have ensured that Word, my default email editor, isn't using the "smart quotes" option.

My boss has Outlook 2003 and a blackberry. I have no idea if the blackberry even figures into this.

He uses his calendar regularly and he also regularly archives his calendar items when Outlook asks if he would like to. Up until he got his Blackberry Pearl everything was available if he needed to go back and check items.

In December 2007 he told me that all of his items from February 2007 until September were not available either on the calendar or via the archive. Everthing prior to that was in archive. We did some troubleshooting and checked his settings. No one else had the problem and we did nothing.

He just emailed me and let me know that everthing prior to April of this year has now disappeared.

We do need to keep his calendar items for legal reasons.

Question:

1. Does anyone know why we are losing the items after successfully archiving (from 2002 until 2007)?

2. Does anyone know how to get the items back?

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Hi there, not sure if anyone will know this one, but hope you don't mind me asking.

I'm using the Calendar on MS Office Outlook 2003. When I'm creating a new appointment, the box for 'Location' allows me to access 10 previous entries, so I don't have to write them out again. I presume these are saved by an Autocomplete process.

I would like Outlook Calendar to save more than 10 locations. But I can't find anywhere to adjust the number of previous entries saved by Autocomplete.

It may be impossible, but I'm hopeful that there is a way if someone could just tell me where it is!

I've tried looking up advice using Google, etc, but I just get information about autocomplete for writing email addresses, which is not what I'm asking.

Any ideas?

cheers,

Hi

I have a user who had a problem viewing appointments in the public calendars and in her own.

On her view, there are a few appointments that show up, but most do not. This happens even if she is logged in to a different machine.

I changed the current view to be Day/Week/Month View with Auto Preview and this allows her to see all the appointments. If it is set to just the Day/Week/Month View she can't see them.

I checked others, and they do not have the auto preview on to see the appointments. Any idea why this would happen?

As I write this, I see I probably should have asked before I did all this work whether or not there is a way to combine multiple calendars in Outlook???

thanks,

When you have access to other user's calendar's is their a way to change the individual colours of the calendars? I know you can have them set to all one colour or use the default but does not seem to be an option to change the colours?

Hi,

I am currently using Outlook 2007, and need to share a calendar that I have created (rather than my standard personal 'my calendar') with people on the server who are using Outlook 2003.

I can share my personal calendar fine (the 2003 users have to add my calendar as a shared calendar after I have sent them an invite), but I can not find a way to share the non-personal calendar.

Any suggestion welcome.

Thanks,

I use outlook 2003 with Win XP. I have an extensive calendar set up with hundreds of appointments. A few days back it was misbehaving. I wanted to delete an appointment, and somehow ended up deleting the entire calendar. All that I did was click "delete" in the pull down menu under edit. The calendar disappeared completely.

Now when I left click on Calendar, nothing opens. If I was in mail, the display continues to be mail. In the sidebar, the list of calendars presents, but none of them are the main calendar.

Now here's the strange part. The calendar is still functioning and is synchronizing with my smart phone. And, I've discovered by right clicking on calendar, (which presents the option to open in a new window) and opening in a new window, the calendar is visible. It just isn't visible in my normal Outlook session where I toggle between mail, calendar, contacts and tasks.

Here is another strange thing. After I open the calendar in a new window, the sidebar permits me to toggle between mail, address book, tasks, etc. However as soon as I do that, the calendar no longer is visible and I have to reopen it in a new window again.

I already tried going back to a restore point prior to the problem. It didn't make any difference. Is there a solution so that I can restore my calendar view in Outlook 2003.

I have a new computer with Outlook 2003 installed. I moved my Outlook 2002 personal.pst from the old machine to the new one and opened it in Outlook 2003 and copied each file folderís information to the new file folders in Outlook 2003. Every thing is ok except the calendar.

Hello,

I am using Outlook 2003 and I download the mails to the PST in my local HDD. Once the PST reaches the size of close to 2GB, outlook recommends you to purge some items and free up space or open a new PST and point that as the new mail delivery location.

Now, once I create a new PST, my calendar items stay with my old PST and I need to refer both the PSTs for current appointments/meetings.

Besides any one trying to schedule a meeting in outlook in my organization does not get visibility of my existing appointments which creates confusion.

I tried to move the calendar items one by one by drag and drop the items from old PST to new PST. It works for standalone meetings. If there are any recurring meetings, then it throws a error as below.

"Cann't move the items. You cannot move one occurrence of an appointment to a different folder. To move a recurring appointment, you must move the original appointment or copy the single occurrence and move the copy".

I tried to go to the first instance of the recurring appointment and moved it. But the result is the same error.

Can some one tell me a way to move all calendar items from one PST to another (something like export/import).

Thanks in advance.

OK, here is a good one...I use Outlook 2003 for business and use the calendar to follow up on opportunities. I set up a meeting for a contact and then put what I want to follow up in the subject line. When I want to work, I choose the current view of my calendar as "Active appointments".

I have customized my columns with start, company, contacts, and subject. My problem is that the "Company" column does not pick up the company name/information from the contact information. There is an exception for one company out of hundreds but I can't figure out how that contact was set up and why it is the only one which shows the information I need.

Your help would be greatly appreciated as I have been chasing this for a long time!

File-->Open, choose the pst and open it. Select and copy the appointments (I find this possible in LIST view). Go to your regular PST calendar and paste.

Click to expand...

No. It should only erase any appointments that are at the same exact time/please/etc. Make a copy of your current calendar first, just to be safe. Copy the archive into the copy. Did it work? Then it should certainly work with your regular calendar.

HI , I am currently using Outlook 2003 at home, and there is Outlook 2000 at work. Current system is to schedule our jobs on the Outlook 2000 at work.

However, I have to work on these jobs and would like to bring that Outlook 2000 calendar from work (maybe by saving the file into my USB flash drive at the end of each day ) to home, so I can keep record and prepare for jobs the next day.

On my Outlook 2003 a home, I have my own calendar, in which I DO NOT want to add entries of the OL2000 from work into, I want to have them as two separate calendars with no relation to each other, and I want to bring home ONLY the calendar, no emails and all other stuff so it won't mess up with my own stuff at home.

I am quite positive that there is a way to achieve this, please help.

"No Information". But notices one attendee does not have that white
diagonally striped indicator (that one attendee has a solid blue
indicator--being busy) as the rest. What does that white diagonally striped
symbol define?

Does that mean the Attendees basically haven't entered information that far
in their calendar? Is there something in terms of public and private setting
set up by the attendee that doesn't want others to view? Or set permission such as Reviewer rights?

All of our training rooms have their own individual calendars on outlook and
when we are using them we add them to the meeting request as a resource. Alternatively we also add meetings directly into the resource calensar.

We are now looking at space utilisation in the building and I was wondering if
it is possible to run a "usage" report on the calendars?

I need to know the number of meetings there have been in these calendars,
and if possible by day and hour - e.g. is 3pm on Monday the most popular slot
for a meeting over the period of one year?

Rather than going through each calendar day by day I was wondering if there
was any tool out there that would run these reports for me? I haven't got the budget for any new software and I have to count the retrospective appointment in Outlook (I can't get some new shareware that will do this for me for all future bookings).

Hiya

The Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Calendar Views Add-in makes it easy for you to view your Outlook Calendar appointments through a filter that is based on Outlook labels and categories. For example, you can create a view that shows you only the appointments on your calendar that are labeled Must Attend, or are categorized as Important.

You add filters by using the Calendar Views toolbar, which opens in your Outlook Calendar after you install the add-in.

Supported Operating Systems:

Windows 2000 Service Pack 2; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP

This download works with the following Office programs:

My girlfriend is having a serious issue at work after they've upgraded from Office XP to 2003. Her outlook calendar didn't seem to upgrade properly, and she's ended up with two calendars (an old one and a new one).

The new one (the default) is completely empty, and the old one has all her old appointments in it.

Ideally, she would make the old one her default in 2003, but the IT people have said she cannot do this because her default is determined/linked to the email server.

Alternatively, they have tried to export the details from the old calendar into the new default one, but this does not entirely work. Appointments from the old calendar do appear in the new one, but appear to be "shell appointments" only. I.e. they show no details of who has accepted meetings, who initially sent the meeting request, and there are no recurrences. In addition, if someone subsequently sends an amendment to a meeting, acceptance etc, this does not appear to register on the new (now default) calendar.

Any ideas anyone without going through each individual appointment and setting it up again.

Thanks in advance

Hello. This is my first time posting here, so hopefully I'm doing this right.

I was trying to import calendars (NHL team schedules) from two different Excel file (.xls extension) to Outlook 2003 and not all of the inputs added to the calendar.

For some reason, only 43 entries added from each file (86 total). There should have been 82 each (164 total)

I tried deleting the rows in the Excel file that DID load and just leaving those that did not, and then importing the file again hoping the fewer rows would help. It did not.

All of the inputs that are not loading are in the same format in Excel as those that did, so I know that's not an issue. I also tried changing the dates to see if, for some reason, Outlook has a limit to how far into the future they will allow you to add. Same problems.

I can add appointments into the Outlook calendar manually with no problem, but I can't seem to import anything else from any file.

Can someone lead me in the right direction to see how to fix this? I've never had this problem in the past when doing this same thing.

Thanks.
