I need a calendar program for my computer since I recently upgraded my computer with student office 2007, which doesn't have outlook like the 2003 edition. Can I have any suggestions? I don't want a web based program that needs that internet to function.
Thunderbird with Lightning:
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.
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.

We use the shared calender in Gmail for keeping track of company events etc. but at this stage we need something better as we have more events to keep track of and more departments getting involved etc. Is there anyway of making the basic Gmail calendar into an updateable spreadsheet calendar that can be accessed by the entire office and/or specific department?
This is all new to me so really glad to get any advice.
Get the corporate version of Gmail.
I can't get the popup reminders for the calendars to work. Neither in the Metro calendar nor in Outlook.

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 Outlook.com 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....
You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com 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 Outlook.com 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 Outlook.com 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 Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.
Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.
Thank you in advance for any help.
Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

Re: Outlook 2003
Is there is a way to designate a Shared Outlook Calendar (that is used as our company-wide calendar) as an individual's default calendar. We are set up with a Microsoft XP Exchange Server.
The goal is to have the company-wide calendar download to a Blackberry Curve as the user's default calendar. Right now he sees his own calendar which he does not need. We have the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed on his network computer.
As an addendum, it would be preferable that the Outlook/Blackberry user not be able to modify the office-wide Shared Calendar (should there be a way for him to see it) so that all changes still go through our calendar maven. Thank you.

I use Outlook as my primary calendar app at home, and either GMail or my iPhone calendar when I am away. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get these three services to talk to each other.
Does anyone know of any programs or services I can use to keep my calendar synchronized? I wouldn't mind dropping GMail from the loop entirely and just having Outlook <-> iPhone synching to each other. Or if anyone has any suggestions for other super awesome calendar apps I'd consider that - but I admit I am pretty fond of Outlook at the moment.
Thanks for your help.
Are you using a personal email account with Outlook, or a company account? If you're using a company account, you can set up your email on your iPhone using the Exchange account setup wizard, and that will sync over your calendar to your phone.
If you're using a personal email account, it's probably either POP or IMAP. Outlook calendar and contacts can be synced to your iPhone, but you'll have to use a manual sync with the phone connected to the computer: http://www.sync-iphone.com/contacts-calendars-email/sync-iphone-with-outlook.html#sync-iphone-with-outlook-two-way
You can also sync Outlook to Gmail, but you'll again need to hool up the phone to the computer and download Google's calendar sync program to your desktop: http://www.ehow.com/how_7172202_sync-outlook-calendar-gmail-calendar.html

Is there a procedure for syncing the calendar app in Win 10 with the Outlook 2013 calendar? I have been trying to sync my calendar in Outlook 2013 with my Blackberry Z30 in Blackberry Blend and Blackberry Link. So far I can only sync Windows 10 contacts with my BB Z30. Selecting the Calendar app isn't an option -- see the attachment. The Blackberry help and support sites are neither helpful nor supportive.

I use Sunrise with Chrome, so that I can sync my iCloud Calendar.
I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.
Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).
However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!
So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!
I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.
I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!
Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!
Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??
I do not like windows live mail. I find that is not very good. So I set outlook up with my hotmail account. But this has 2 seperate contact lists and 2 seperate calendars.

From W Mail use file and import and export. From OUtlook, it should be the same.
Go to the bottom of this tutorial, before the comments for all the information you may need.
So, this is about the integration between the two, of course. I have added the WL feed to OC and it appears there. Every task appears as an "all day" event. Then I uncheck the "all day" box, enter the respective time and make my schedule. And then, I guess at the next refresh from the WL feed, all events are back to "all day" :( Does anybody know how to deal with this? Or any reasonable way to put WL tasks into a(ny) calendar without having to jump through hoops? Thanks in advance!More replies
Out of the blue, my Outlook 2002 calendar locks up every time I try to enter text for a new reminder. I can type the text, but as soon as I try to exit the calendar folder I get an hour glass for about 10 seconds. Then I get the MS window that says the program (Outlook) encountered a problem and needed to restart, with the buttons asking if I want to send a report about the problem to MS. I do not get any error code info from Outlook. I could not find anything about this specific issue on the MS site. All of my previously entered reminders are still there. I think the file for that data is corrupt, but do not know how to fix it. (I know that in some programs you can delete a data file, and then the program will generate a fresh one the next time it opens.) I did by the way go into the dos mode and run the "Clean Reminders" option that is listed as one of the command switches. I have also ran the MS Office Detect and Repair program with no change. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.
I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync 0.9.4.1 running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.
I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

How can I setup my access 2013 database Calendar to show up in Outlook 2013 Calendar. please help me
what database are you using?
I opened my Outlook this morning at my office this morning and it was fine. When I left my office in the afternoon to do work at home, my calendar was blank. My outlook is synced to a live.com (hotmail) account, not a business server. For some reason the events that were snoozed at one point are still popping up. The outlook calendar is synced thru google to my phone. I can still see the calendar in google which has a lot of appointments on it. I don't know if these were just appointments I added thru my phone though and not ones entered on my laptop. I can still see the calendar on my phone as well.
So, in sum, my calendar on desktop outlook is gone but remains on google and phone. When I open outlook a window pops up and says; "Could not read the calendar. Outlook cannot open this item. The item may be damaged." It also says this in the top right where the calendar used to be. If I click the calendar button it takes me to the page where the calendar should be but instead shows; "Cannot display the folder". I have Windows 7 and Outlook 2007. I'm not super IT savvy but need to get this calendar with the appointments back somehow. Sorry for the lengthy explanation, just trying to give as much info as possible. Please help if you can. Thanks!
Ok so I added a few events to my calendar real quick the other day by just clicking the day (in grid view) and typing in the event name. Just now when I went back and fixed the day I hit save and the event isn't visable on the month grid. The event is still there but in order to view it I have to scroll down to the time in day view. Why doesn't the event show up when in month view? all of my events are doing that now, they never used to! AHHH!
Hi Michael, which version of Outlook are you using? In Outlook 2007, when you're in the month view there are radio buttons at the top where you can choose for the Details to be Low, Medium or High. To show the individual appointments (as opposed to all day appointments) you must choose High. Hope that helps.

On my friend's Win 8.1 computer, he accesses his email [email protected] using Gmail. He also has a Windows phone and accesses that same Gmail account there.
On the phone it is set to also sync the Contacts and Calendar. But the Contacts and Calendar are not syncing. He claims that it used to work, and that seems to be true since there are a lot of contacts listed on the phone.
I've done some research and found that Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is used for this syncing. I've also found that there is inconsistent info about whether or not GMail still supports EAS. Some sources on the web say Gmail does not support it any longer, some say they only still support it if you have Google Apps for Business. But my friend does have Google Apps for Business, I confirmed that by checking in his Gmail account, I can see the history of the billing, he has had it for almost two years.
Can anyone help clear this up?
If I enter an appointment on the native calendar app it is not pushing these appointments to other devices or even the browser outlook.com calendar view. Should it be doing so? It works the other way around. So if I enter an appointment on my phone (iOS) using the outlook setup on the calendar it does push the appointment to the calendar app on Windows 10. Just not other way round!
Ok, correction - it does work. Just took a while to push them out. About 30 minutes to come through. Pretty slow but at least it did it. Maybe servers are slow although I'm sure it's pretty instant the other way round !1 more replies

Right now, I have to click back on month view, then click a day in the week I want to view, then click on work week view again. There's no way to just click from one work week view to the next?

i want to save my old e-mails and my old calendars.
what i do to archive is, create an archive for the folder i want to archive.
so, the calendar would archive to "calendararch.pst". then when i need to look something up i just have to get that archive and nothing else.
for some unknown reason my calendar will not archive. the file is created but the calendar entries are not there. The entries for each day are not being brought over to the archive. they just remain in the calender.
Most of my e-mail folders will archive with no problem, but not the calendar.
the box is: P4 running windows XP pro with SP3, the outlook is: outlook 2003 updated from 2000.
Did you copy or export the Calendar recently?

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.
this may help although you aren't getting the error messages cited in the article. But it does say that you need a named range which you don't mention either. Give it a try and see if it helps.

My PC uses Windows XP and I am using Outlook 2007. In the Calendar Section, I have recently got a "Reminder" which wont be dismissed.
When I DO click Dismiss, I get a message: Cannot turn off the reminder. You may be reminded again. Cannot locate recurrence information for this appointment.
It was an entry to do some extra cover at work that I did for some time, but I deleted a while ago, but don't understand why if the calendar entry has been deleted that the reminder has not!?!
I also sync with an iPhone which of course mirrors the calendar and I suppose at some point the iPhone HAD the calendar entry when the PC did not, but after the sync it should have been deleted to match the PC.
Is there any way I can I get rid of this reminder?
Please try the following:
1. Select "Calendar" so that you are viewing the calendar
2. Near "File" at the top of the window click "View" -> "Current View" -> "All Appointments"
3. Locate the appointment that keeps generating the reminder and delete it. Outlook will promp several errors, but just click through them and the appointment should be deleted now.
4. Restart Outlook.
Hopefully this helps.

Hi all. I have a user whose holidays have disappeared from his calendar. This happened, he says, after the DST update a week or so ago. He has tried adding them back but that didn't work. They are just gone from his calendar. He can't see them at all. This isn't the problem where he can't see the holidays 3 or more years from now. The holidays for this year and each year thereafter have simply disappeared. I've Google'd the heck out of this and haven't found anything to help resolve the issue. Any ideas?
If you are in the calendar and click View/Arrange By/Current View/Event do the holidays show up there?
I remember with Outlook 2003, whenever I would have a meeting scheduled and need to add someone to the meeting, I could click "Send Update" and Outlook would ask if I wanted to send to "All" attendees, or just those that are added or deleted.
I don't have this feature (that I know of) in Outlook 2007. It just automatically sends to "All". Does this feature exist? Where can I change the settings for it?
Thanks in advance!
I think I solved this one myself... Outlook 2007 has a "feature" that tries to determine if your intent is to send the updates to "all" or to only added/deleted attendees....
It depends on the change that you made to the meeting invite itself. If all you do is add or remove people from the meeting, it will ask what you want to do. If you change the time/date, or add notes to the meeting invite, it automatically sends the update to "all".
How do you transer Calendar appointments from one pst to anoter?
I have several calendars under one Google Calendar account (usually by school subject and other important matters) but Metro Calendar app only syncs one default calendar, which I only use it to note Holidays.
Is there a way to sync all Google Calendars using Metro Calender app? Thank you!!
I uploaded my school calendar to my google calendar so I can see it in my android phone but i had to delete it because there was a problem with it. When I try to upload it again I get the following error message :"Failed to import events: Some of the events in this file were not imported because you had imported them to Google Calendar before. Other events in this file have been imported.."
I have looked around online and some people said to open the file with text edit and delete the "UID." I did that but it did not help. Other people say to create another calendar and share it but that is also giving me problems.
Does anyone know how to get around this problem. I really need to have my calendar in my personal calendar that I have for my google account so I can keep my self sane and not get lost in grad school. Thank you for all your help.
Does anyone know of a way to synchronize any local calendar client (like Outlook, Sunbird, or iCal) with any web based calendar (like Yahoo! Calendar or Google Calendar) automatically (i.e. without exporting and uploading .ics files)?
Yahoo does it
Outlook 2007 running under Exchange server. We have a shared calendar used by all employees to show when they will be out of the office... vacations, part time, etc.
We also have Resource Mailboxes in Exchange so that when you click on the "Rooms" button when setting up an appointment, you can see the room schedule, then add your appointment to the room by inviting the room as an attendee.
The boss wants to do something similar with the shared calendar. When she puts an appointment on her private calendar that will take her out of the office, she wants to be able to press the equivalent of the "Rooms" button and have that appointment be automatically copied to the shared calendar so that everyone can see that she will be out of the office.
I've been trying to do a web search but unfortunately the search terms I have been using keeps telling me how to set up calendars, not how to pull off this trick.
Information greatly appreciated. TIA.
Have been trying for a while to sync windows 10 calendar on my laptop with windows 10 calendar on my wife's laptop. No luck so far.
I have linked both individual windows 10 calendars with our individual google calendars, and events transfer successfully from both windows 10 calendars, through both google calendars, but will not download to the other windows 10 calendar.
Is that clear?
What I am trying to say is that I can create an event on my windows 10 calendar, it transfers to my google calendar, and then to my wife's google calendar, but it does not load on to my wife's windows 10 calendar. This works both ways.
Help will be very much appreciated. Please note that while I use my laptop a great deal I have little insight into the technicalities. It's a tool!
I signed in both in Windows Live Mail and Hotmail Calendar. However, my windows live calendar never picks up any event from Hotmail Calendar. Aren't they supposed to syn automatically? There is no buttons or place I can find in Windows Live Calendar to "subscribe" or "import." I have a bunch of events in Hotmail calendar but none in Windows Live Calendar, so I would like to have all the events shown on my Windows Live Calendar too. Please advise me?
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 dug through the MSKB and found h... Read more

When I start Outlook 2007, suddenly my Calendar is displaying instead of my IMAP Inbox despite the fact that I've chose my IMAP Inbox as my preferred folder to display at startup.
It's worked in the past, and without any reason, it's decided to ignore my settings.
Any clues, anyone?
outlook:calendar snuck itself into my startup command line after the outlook.exe command. THAT'S what makes it start in the Calendar!
We have a spreadsheet that keeps track of when our computer warranties expire. Would like to run a macro using the warranty expired date to create an appointment in Outlook. That part I understand. The problem is that when I go to run the macro again, it creates a duplicate appointment if the appointment already existed. Very frustrating!
This is the code below, any help would be appreciated!!!! Thanks
Dim o As Outlook.Application
Dim ai As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim r&, sSubject$, sBody$, dStartTime As Date, dDuration#
For r = 4 To 10
sSubject = Sheet1.Cells(r, 1).Value
sBody = Sheet1.Cells(r, 4).Value
dStartTime = Sheet1.Cells(r, 3).Value
dDuration = 30
Set o = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
Set ai = o.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
ai.Body = "Service Tag= " & sBody
ai.Subject = "Warranty Expires for Server " & sSubject
ai.Start = dStartTime
ai.Duration = dDuration

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.
You can use this function to check if an appointment exists based on the Start Day/Time
Public Function CheckAppointment(ByVal argCheckDate As Date) As Boolean
Dim oApp As Outlook.Application
Dim oNameSpace As Outlook.Namespace
Dim oApptItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim oFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim oMeetingoApptItem As Outlook.MeetingItem
Dim oObject As Object
On Error Resume Next
' check if Outlook is running
Set oApp = GetObject("Outlook.Application")
If Err <> 0 Then
'if not running, start it
Set oApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
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
If oApptItem.Start = argCheckDate Then
CheckAppointment = True
Set oApp = Nothing
Set oNameSpace = Nothing
Set oApptItem = Nothing
Set oFolder = Nothing
Set oObject = Nothing
For this to work you need to have Tools/References/Microsoft Outlook xx Object Library enabled.
Then alter your macro like this
Private Sub cmdOutApt_Click()
' Create the Outlook session
Set myOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
' Start at row 2
r = 2
Do Until Trim(Cells(r, 1).Value) = "&q... Read more

I am looking for a program that I can use to make monthly calendar sheets to insert into an opened CD ROM jewel case.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Do you have Outlook, MS Publisher, MS Works, or MS Home Publishing? They all have Calendars you can work with, and print at different sizes.
I have printed things out in Word, and fit it to a size that fits to a CD Case. Heck, attaching a picture of a Calendar to word, printing it, then cutting it could work.
I'm sure there are programs that you can pay extra for, but you might have something on your system that can do it right now.
I am a student in University, i am looking for a basic calendar program so i can simply click the date and type in that i may have an assignment due, a hair appointment, etc. Anyone know of any free software or shareware that i might be able to get a serial for (i'll do that myself)? Thanks
Due to a hard drive issue I had to reinstall my o/s Windows XP Media Center Edition. After the reinstall I can't find the calendar/reminder program I was using before the reinstall. It was a free-standing calendar program that was not part of Outlook (I know that because I wasn't using Outlook, I was using Outlook Express).
So now I can't figure out what calendar program I was using or where the heck it went. I'd always assumed it was part of Win XP. It was definitely tied in to my system clock. As soon as I booted up my PC, a reminder dialog box would open up if a reminder was past due. I never had to open the program to see reminders.
But checking now on the web it appears only Vista comes with a free standing calendar program, so that couldn't be what I was using, although I noticed it looks a lot like the Vista calendar screen shots I've seen.
If the calendar I was using before wasn't part of Win XP, I figure it must have been part of the MS Office program I was using. The problem is I don't recall which version of Office I had before. I didn't have Office preinstalled on my PC, and I can't find my Office CD.
Does Windows XP Media Center have this program and I'm just not finding it now? Is there any version of MS Office with a free standing calendar program?
Welcome to the board.
Just guessing ... maybe Works came with your comp.
Failing that, this looks like it might be useful.
I'm looking for something that one would think would be easy to find, but have been looking for months with no results. What I want is a free downloadable calendar program in which you can put images of your own in the the day section on a month grid. Not a standard picture on top, but in the day part itself while being in a month view.
I cannot find any and I am at a loss of where else to look (I have searched everywhere). So, anyone know where to get one?

I am posting for my cousin who owns his own auto accessories business.
Currently when someone calls to set up an appointment to have a remote starter/keyless entry installed, etc, it is entered into his desktop or notebook computer, I think he puts it in Word or Excel.
What he wants to be able to do is this:
He'd like a program where he can enter an appointment on either his desktop or his laptop and have them synchronize at certain times throughout the day or right after there is an entry made. So both computers have an updated list of appointments. He's got a wireless network, so they could be updated that way. I was looking at Mozilla's Sunbird calendar application to use for entering the appointments. Anyone know of a program that will sync the two computers, as far as the appointments go??
Any help appreciated
Thank you in advance
hmm, apparently Sunbird will do what I need it to do, I just need a WebDav server....
Recently on another post, I asked for a "free" calendar program that will remind me each day of what is happening in the near future so I don't forget. I was told "kurlo" was a good one. Since using Kurlo, it has froze up twice while using it. I had a ton of information in it, and had to do it all over again in Kurlo. It froze up again. Does anyone know of a good "free" or "paid" calendar program, which also will remind me each day of what is happening in the near future? Thanks.

FOR Outlook 2003
When I click on a date in my calendar to make an appointment, the "All Day Event" box is the default and I have to change that to make an appintment in 1/2 hour increments. How can I change it so that the default is the "start time/end time"?
I do not have this problem when, in calendar, I click "New" below the menu.
It seems as though my outlook calendar is corrupt, it won't secheule any appointments correctly on my main calendar. On my sub calendars that I created it schedules fine. When I try to save an appointment on my main calendar it saves it on the wrong date and time. For instance, if i tried to save an appointment @ 2:30pm on June 24th, it would save it as June 3rd @ 10:38am.

I've set my options to show task reminders in my Outlook calendar, yet when I create a task with a start and end date, and set a reminder, it doesn't show on my calendar.
Am I doing something wrong?
Wow... I didn't know that you could see your Task list on your Calendar... I thought Tasks were seperate from the calendar... two different things...
The task list shows on Outlook Today screen.
Where did you find the option to display them on your calendar?
I have Outlook 2002 on a clients desktop that was just exported from a laptop to it. There mail is there along with address book and so is there older calendar items, but when you right click or double click to create a new task the box comes up to tye it in...you click save and close and it just disappears....and nothing shows up...hours on down the road a reminder might pop up from the test that was put in the calendar that you can not see. Also I have tried deleting the old calendar and reimporting it. also there are no filters being applied.More replies
What do I have to do to be able to view and edit my bosses calendar. I know that I learned how to do this but what settings or permissions do I set on both his and my computer. WE are using XP Pro.
you need to share his calendar and this can be done with netfolders up through Outlook 2000 after that you need 3rd party software (which I recommend anyway - lots easier) I just installed this program Tuesday and it works great
My harddrive was just cleaned up, and instead of office 2002 it came back with 2003--I cannot get the calendar, when in 'month' mode to show all days equally--it wants to scrunch up the week-ends--I know there must be some way to do it, because I had my old system set up that way. please help--thank you
Easy one. When in calendar:

Under Month, uncheck "Compress weekend days"
