    Calendar is not syncing

    For some reason or other, the calendar appointments on my DELL Axim PDA, running Windows Mobile 2003 SE, are not syncing with the desktop. I recently noticed that a ball game, a Court date, a week long training seminar, AND my birthday (in August) I had previously entered into Outlook (2007, running under Vista Home Premium) on my desktop did not show up on the PDA. These are not the only missing appointments. I'm confident that all my appointments are missing from the PDA. I checked the sync settings for the Calendar and found it is (still) set to "Sync all future appointments and the past two weeks".

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Hi Steve

    Just as a check try changing the Synch at "Synchronize All Appointments", that sometimes kick starts the process properly. You can always revert back to the original setting afterwards.

    Hi Jerry,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I did as you asked and, sorry to say, the problem persists.

    Re: Calendar is not syncing

    Well, I inadvertently discovered the problem. Somehow, while entering a new appointment in the PDA calendar, I discovered some of the new data forms in the calendar had numerous categories selected. After clearing the categories the appointments re-appeared. I have not a clue as to why, or even how, this happened.

    Nice one, thanks Steve.

    I found a similar thing happened to me ( not the non synch problem). My College has a habit of sending through meeting requests to me for teaching contracts. They use different categories et up on their system and my poor old Ipaq gets cluttered with a mixture of mine and theirs....a good tip and one I shall remember <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
