Outlook 2010 Calendar, only active list view works, calendar view err

Q: Outlook 2010 Calendar, only active list view works, calendar view err

Lenovo T500 Intel Core2 Duo T9600 2.8GHz
Win 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
MS Office Professional 2010 v14.0.7106.5003 32-bit

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 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.

If you have any clue as to the cause and better a solution that works, I'd be very grateful. Please tell me what other information you may need to diagnose the problem.


Edit: I forgot to say, I removed and reinstalled Outlook. I rebuilt my profile from scratch. I recovered email from a archived pst file. I recovered the calendar by exporting my Google calendar and importing the data to Outlook. Basically killed off the old one and replaced it with "new" information. For a time after I did that, everything worked as it should. After a while -- I don't know how long -- the calendar started to act up, giving the error message in Calendar View sometimes until finally it went to only Active List view. This procedure fixed a bigger problem, which was the inability to accept an appointment or meeting sent to me via email.

I also failed to mention, I am a sole practitioner, so this is an individual free standing application. There is no exchange server involved. I use Comcast email (POP3) and also have Gmail coming into Outlook (IMAP) as part of the means for seeing email on the phone and to see any email that is actually sent to the Gmail account.

When I pull up the Month view of outlook calendar it doesn't show all of the things I have scheduled.

for instance, I have something at 2pm on April 30 and I don't see that unless I pull up the day and the detail of it. On the month view it's just a white square with no indication there's something scheduled. Other days if I have something all day it shows. Or maybe morning.

What setting do I need to tinker with?


A:Outlook 2010 Calendar Month View Not Showing Things

I see some items not others. I don't think it's a lost PST file. If I open the day, I see the entries. I don't have many entries, but it would be nice to see them all in the month view. For Instance on May 7th, I see Teacher appreciation week (a week long whole day entry) but not a 9am webinar and a 2pm presentation although they show if I open the day view. May 8th I have the date bold in my little thumbnail calendar so I know there's something there; in the month view nothing, in the day view I see an activity scheduled for 9am.

It's crazy. I would like to see something in the month view to show me what's coming up.

Iím a IT tech and we have a problem here with some users.

In outlook, when creating a appointment and look at the print preview (or when we print), the appointments donít look the same.

In case A (the case I want to happen on every computer), we see the whole appointment, ďmulti-line viewĒ.

In case B (the problem), we just see a part of the line (the lineís cut), itís single-line.


Case A (the OK situation):
Case B (the problem):
I uninstalled Office + reinstalled it and the problem occurs again. On the same Exchange account, on two different computer, I can get the Case A on one computer and the Case B on the second. So I guess itís not Exchange related.

We use Windows XP Pro SP2 and Office 2003 SP3.

So my guess itís NT account related or an option in Outlook that I overlooked the 10 times I checked.

Can someone help me here?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English! 

This is not a desperate problem, but an annoying one. I don't know how the settings changed, and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Ordinarily when I would open up the calendar in Outlook, it would look like this: left hand pane with one or two small month calendars on top - task bar for other Outlook features on the bottom; on the right in the large portion of the screen would be displayed today's date, or another day if I had chosen that date; in the top toolbar are icons for choosing views, i.e., day, week, etc. (there are only two panes displayed)

Instead what started happening yesterday when I open the calendar I see three panes: left hand pane with two tiny calendar icons that say next to them "calendar" and "calendar in archive folders;" there are no monthly calendars; there's a long blank sections; and there's the task bar for other Outlook features on the bottom. In the center pane is a list of events or appointments showing a recurring event icon, the name of the event, the start, the end and the recurrence pattern. In the left had pane is a description of the selected event from the center column.

I've never seen this view before and don't know how I got it. What did I click?

1. My default calendar view is on the weekly setting. I'd like to see just "today's" appointments by default.

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?

Outlook Calendar shows start time in the monthly view but not the end time. I have right clicked on the calendar gone to Other Settings and checkmarked "Show End Time" but the end time still does not show. How do I make the start and end time show in the monthly view?

A:Outlook Calendar shows start time in the monthly view but not the end time.

You did not say what version of Outlook.

I am using Outlook 2007 and note the same as you - only the start time is displayed. I note on mine, if the end time was displayed, there would be little to no room for the Subject title so for me, I would rather have the appointment title instead of the end time. I think in a crowded field (as the monthly view can be) that is best for most people.

I don't see a fix for you. However, for a workaround, with Outlook being in "focus", if you hover over the appointment with your mouse, then the stop time is also displayed in a bubble.

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.

In my MS Office Calendar Monthly view, it shows 6 weeks total. I'd like to reduce this to 5 weeks if possible in order to show more appointments in a day. I've already decreased the font size which added another line each day for an additional appointment. I'd rather not use the upside down triangles to view appointments scrolling off the daily list, but to just view all of them over a 5-week, or even 4 week period in a monthly type format. Right now at 6 weeks showing, it's limited at showing only 4 appointments per day without hitting the triangle. I'd like to increase this to 6 or 7 per day.

Our HR director has setup her Calendar to be viewed in Outlook 2000 by one of her counsels. I had her setup myself as well, and I get the same error. Any thoughts?

A:Unable to view delegated calendar file

Well...what IS the error?

Are you sure you made them the delegate? That's done under Tools-Options...and NOT via permissions.

A delegate is the only one that can "send on behalf of".

So, if you haven't done the "real" delegate thing, and you're just trying to view someone's calendar, then you need to do this:

Right-click the inbox and give that person permission to at least VIEW the inbox. This does not allow them to see the messages therein. Instead it acts as a "portal" to allow the person to get to the calendar, where you should right-click and set the desired permissions.

Hope this helps.

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'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.

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: PrihlŠste 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...

Anyone know how to send a URL link to a public calendar within outlook 2010? We are using a third party company to host our exchange and we have calendars for each department. If we want to have someone join the calendar, is there a way to just send them a URL that will open the calendar? I hear there is publishing to the internet etc...

First of all, please let me say that I'm happy to have found this group, I have found what I have read very interesting.

Having said that...

I have Outlook 2000 on my Dell Dimension 8200 with Windows XP. I have always wanted my computer to boot with my calendar reminders for the day.

The thing is, (correct me if I'm wrong?) I have always believed that Outlook is resource intensive, so booting and keeping Outlook running would interfere with whatever I'm doing.

My Dell also came with Works 2002, and puts just a calendar reminder in the startup which would work for me, except that I've worked with Outlook first ( and didn't get my reminders till I opened it up )

What I was considering doing was somehow importing my Outlook Calendar to Works, let Works start up with the computer with my reminders... and then just continue to work with Works. ( I will also want to hotsync that with my HanSpring Visor for easy updates )

Would this be the best way to this? Is there an (inexpensive) easier way to do this?

Thank you in advance,

I have a strange situation with Outlook 2010 (using Windows 7 HP), whereby dates of birthdays have become corrupt.

I have family birthdays set up as recurring events. I recently noticed that some of them have been corrupted, in that three that occur in December have been changed to different months: one to January and two to April. I became aware of this because the ?reminder? for a December birthday appeared yesterday (15th April).

I say I use Outlook 2010, but the situation is a bit more complex: I have two older PCs running Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003 respectively and I synchronise these regularly with the Outlook 2010 PC, using Code Two Outlook Sync. I also use Kies 3 to synchronise the Outlook 2010 PC with my Samsung Galaxy S4.

I don?t know exactly when the corruption occurred, but I have been doing the aforementioned synchronisations for several years without problem.

The strange thing is that I have a number of other, annual recurring events and none of them seems to be affected. My concern is that whilst I immediately spot the errors in family birthdays [because I know them], there may be other reminders [e.g. to pay bills] that I?m not so familiar with, and I wouldn?t necessarily spot it if they had become corrupted.

Any suggestions as to the cause would be very welcome!

What I'm trying to do is just set an event on the calendar as an appointment and then have a reminder sent to me one week before.

I thought I had set it up but I haven't received any type of reminder (not sure if it will be an email or a popup alert of some kind) for a test that I set up.

The default reminder is set for 15 minutes in Options - Calendar - Calendar options but I know you can change that for each individual appointment that you set up.

So I'm not sure what I did wrong.

Also, how do you access the calendar without having to turn the ToDo bar on which takes up a lot of the screen on the right side?

I recently switched from outlook 2007 to 2010. My question is, how do I open a group shared calendar? In the 2007 and 2003 versions I would click in the shared calendar and then Actions, view group schedule. I cannot figure it out in the 2010 version. The methods I have tried, give me a list of everyone's calendar under "other calendar" in the navigation pane. I can check off each individual calendar to view their schedule, but I prefer the 2007/2003 options that would open a separate dialog box with a list of everyone and their schedule laid out horizontally.

Hi all,

All of you ye know, that in outlook (in "calendar" screen) more then one calendar is available. In my case under "my calendars" link appear 2 calendars, called: "calendar" and "birthdays calendar". The first one is just calendar, where holydays, tasks and so on (except birthdays) are marked and another calendar is only full of my contacts' birthdays.

Could I combine them? I don't like having more then one calendar. I'd rather have ONE and full calendar, where all events (tasks, holydays and so on together with birthdays) are given.

If anyone knows how to combine two calendars, please help me.

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??

We use Outlook 2010 with Exchange 2010.
There is a calendar in the public folders. Several People have the permission as "author" for this public Folder calendar.

One of the "authors" creates an appointment with a reminder in his own calendar.
Then he copies this appointment with the reminder to the calendar of the public folder.

A public Folder itself does not Support a reminder in the calendar. But if you copy an appointment with a reminder from your own Outlook calendar to the calendar in the public Folder, then a reminder in a calendar of a public Folder is supported.

The result is: Every other "author" gets this reminder popping up in his own Outlook calendar.

The question is: How to prevent the reminders popping up in the outlook of the other "authors"?

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the calendar is checked).

A:Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

Windows 7 Ultimate 32; Office 2010.

Starting a couple of days ago, I haven't been able to preview any attachments to email--none at all. The message is: "This file cannot be previewed. Try opening the file in which is was created."

If I start in safe mode, it is able to view all attachments without any problem, but I can't find a way to resolve it other than working in safe mode.

I haven't installed any software recently that might account for this.

I have tried many things:

Scanpst.exe repeatedly until no errors
Office repair
Created new profile
Checked Trust Center settings
Checked file associations
Changed Norton Internet Security settings so it does not "protect email"

I'm at a loss.

Any advice please??

have you tried the repair feature? or tried uninstalling and re-installing outlook. what are the files that you are trying to preview? PDF? JPEG?

Outlook 2010 is acting up for me.

First, I have sort by categories which works fine.

Then, I have "as last viewed" for expand/collapse default in view settings > group by (automatically group is checked)

Problem: when changing folders, I come back to inbox just to find random collapse/expand view instead of my actual "last viewed" settings. For example, today I went to inbox, everything was collapsed. I change folders, come back to inbox and everything is expanded. It happens most of the time.

I have my settings oriented similar to yours but I cannot replicate the issue you are having. Whenever I use the "Expand/Collapse" options:

whenever I switch folders and return to the folder I last expanded, or collapsed, the view remains as I chose.

My wife recently had a change to her e-mail system. Long story short, 600 old e-mails (some more than 10 years old) were suddenly downloaded to her inbox & all of them had the same date & time in the inbox list! However, when opening the e-mails, one can see the true "received" date & time.I wanted to create a filter to find e-mail messages that were from prior years, so she could simply delete them wholesale. But the filter only seems to go by the date in the Inbox list. That's when I thought about searching for prior years in the message header, but there no longer seems to be a way to view these (as I can in Outlook 2007), let alone filter on information within them.Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?I had thought of simply searching for prior years within the body text (i.e. "2004"), then tagging all of the matching e-mails. But if someone wrote an e-mail within the past several days that happened to mention the year 2004, then my system would wrongly have it tagged for deletion. I only want to delete e-mails that were actually sent in 2004, not those that simply mention it...Can anyone suggest a way to access the message headers in a search / filter or suggest another way to do this?thanks!ToddT

A:How do I view/access Outlook 2010 message headers?

The full header can be viewed via the Tags option as shown here: have some older messages my inbox so I tried a few things. I'll tell you what worked and what didn't so you can get a feel for what you might have to do:I created a folder called 2012.I then created a rule using a condition "with specific words in the message header". The specific word I chose was 2012 and the action was to move messages to the 2012 folder.This sort of worked. It move all messages that contained a Received entry similar to 29 Dec 2012, but it all moved any message with strings like this in the header:ABCDEFG2012M5.xxxx.yy.COMThe next thing I tried was editing the rule to add a leading and trailing space around 2012 like you see in the date string.This worked much better, but it still picked up strings such as this, so even some messages that were received in 2015 were moved to the 2012 folder:X-Mailer: Roving Constant Contact 2012 (, if I were you, I would try to create a list of words that narrowed down the hits that Outlook will return. Perhaps your list might include the year that the email was received but also exclude certain phrases if you know they exist.This of course, assumes that the header includes the original received date, and not the date that shows up in the Inbox list.Good luck!Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I would like to show a specific category on my contacts list. When I hit "View" I can see three options, Category, company and location (term may not be exact since my MS Outlook is a Hebrew version), but all three are grayed.
How do I make these option available for use?

Microsoft services

p.s. My MS Outlook is a Hebrew version. All lablels are in Hebrew.
The label to the right of "iCloud" is "View". The gray terms below are "Categories"' "Company" and "Position".

Just wondering if Win 8.1 somehow made available a "all programs" list view (as per win 7 start) versus the highly undesirable Metro all programs view ? Can't find any evidence of it ?
Is there a way to boot into desktop view directly (as opposed to metro view) yet ?
Or am I going to have to buy Start8 still ?

Also, is there a "what's new in Win 8.1" somewhere ?
